(headless) photos of me

Here I am, trying out a dress from Gwynnie Bee.  Pictures are always a good reality check--especially those taken from the side and back, because I don't see myself clearly from these vantage points in the mirror.

The dress is one size too big, so I sent it back and am waiting for a replacement to come in the proper size.  The cardigan is from Target, the belt is from a different cardigan set, necklace is a cheapie made of wooden beads, and shoes are from Land's End.  I'm considering this outfit for a daytime party I'm attending in about a  month.


  1. I would have loved to have seen a picture without the belt. Next time please? :) The dress is cute.

  2. Thanks, Mrs. Swan. I'll try to do that. I belted it because it's a shift dress and was one size too big, so it was sort of hanging on me in such a way that I looked like I had no waist. But I didn't like how my necklace hit the belt, either. Maybe when I have one in the right size, I won't need to belt it.

  3. I think you look great in these pictures, and I like the belt, actually. I can't wear dresses at all, and I envy how good you look in this!

  4. Thanks, SFG! I tried it without the belt yesterday. It definitely needs the belt.

    I've come to really like dresses but have no place to go in them, for the most part!
