Concrete Catwalk // Swimming with the Fishes

September 17, 2012

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve actually gone swimming (not nearly enough trips to the beach this year), but this fish-print vintage dress made me feel almost like I could have been in a more tropical locale…

Check out the rest of the photos and the outfit details, after the jump!

I love this dress for it’s ability to make a big impact with little to no effort, and think it’s especially fun to wear both dressed up or dressed down (like the last time I wore it here!), for a quirky variation on the look.

Trying to decide whether or not I should push the envelope by trying to winterize it for the upcoming season (tights, boots & a slouchy cardigan maybe?) or put it away until next summer rolls around… Would love to hear your thoughts!

    Love this outfit! I would definitely try to take it into fall with some tall black boots or even tights and booties! It was so great running into you so often during Fashion Week – you are such an inspiring blogger and a sweetheart to put the icing on the cake :).

    Jessie, I would definitely saw style in for fall/winter! It’d be so fun! We have a great animal graphic print trend going on right now, so I’d say go for it! :)

    xoxo, Stephanie :)
