'Take A [Fashion] Bath Once Or Twice A Week...It Is To The Soul What The Water-Bath Is To The Body'


Love this sequin dress from JCrew.  It is slightly sheer on the side panels and very sexy. The sequins are a bit delicate so I have to be super careful each time I wear it, meaning it'll only worn about twice a year.  But, it makes the dress all the more special.  And as soon as I saw this long cardigan vest from All Saints, I knew the two were meant for each other (especially since the vest provides a bit of protection for the delicate sequins).

Do you ladies have any super delicates that you wear only a few times a year to preserve its life?















What I'm Wearing:
Dress: JCrew
            Orig. Price: $275.00
            Paid: $118.00
Vest/Cardigan:  All Saints
Shoes: Steve Madden
Rings: Made Her Think, Free People

  3. You look divine, love your dress to death. I love the bath tub shoot, very femme fatale - splendid idea. I too love sequins, very old hollywood glamour.

  13. Wow, that combo has such a cool neo-medieval look; very tough and yet sexy with the delicate material. Quite appropriate with your penchant for Shakespeare!

  14. This is a BEAUTIFUL dress.

    I wear Saris once in a while... I had one made specially when I went travelling and burned a hole through the blouse piece when ironing. :(

  81. you look amazing as always :) i do have a few pieces that are more delicate but i'm not a very delicate grrl and i like when certain things show that they have been loved :) but i do know the feeling. i have a rick owens jumpsuit that should be worn more often but i don't want to mess it up... sounds so silly though haha

    you have gorgeous lips and i love the color you are wearing in this post :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. those. shoes! those. freaking. SHOES! so classy and gorgeous! you look so gorgeous here, I especially love the pop of color from the lipstick and I totally agree, the semi-sheer side panel is super sexy... and I wore a delicate sequin covered dress today too (also my second time wearing it this year) and I felt like I had to be so careful! alas, the things we do for fashion... :) whatevs, soooo worth it!
