This Loup dress is another dress I decided to keep, even though I was toying with getting rid of it. Honestly, I love it, but haven’t worn it in forever. I got it a couple years ago with a Refinery29 deal – remember those? It’s so unique and fits very well, if a little big. My husband likes it, which is a big reason why I’m keeping it. I didn’t think I needed to have both this one and the Lanston dress, but they’re different enough, and at this point, I have room for both while I decide if I need to purge one of them.
It’s funny how different things look to me in the mirror at home, and in photos. Sometimes, I look at photos and like something BETTER than I did in the mirror and other times, like now, I look at the photos and think, meh… Ultimately, it doesn’t matter much, because if I like it and am comfortable in it, who cares how it photographs? And again, Leo likes it, and he almost NEVER tells me he likes anything on me, so it must look okay…!
If I had the outfit to do over again, I wouldn’t include the white beaded bracelet. I love it (my mom brought it back from her trip to Africa), and have worn it, but it’s just too much for me with this dress. I know – it’s not too much, and probably adds a little interest to an otherwise “boring” outfit, but to me, it breaks up the simplicity, it’s too frivolous. With other outfits that have more layers, etc., I think it works better. But this one I want to be completely minimal – nothing extra.
Haha…just a glimpse into how my sartorial mind works. Weird.
Happy Monday! We’re still at the beach…
