Clover and Cream

I feel like I have been blogging more outfit posts than usual, but thought I'd share a couple of snaps of the outfit I wore to last night's St. Patrick's Day Dance Class/Practise Party, during which my mister and I had to perform a short waltz routine that we had only learned the night before. After class, we stopped in at our local little pub for a celebratory Guiness, looking very overdressed.  I suppose I could have gone the route of dressing like a leprechaun like some fellow dancers or pub goers, but I knew I would never have been able to fake a Ginger-like elegance whilst waltzing if I hadn't have been wearing something with fluttery bits, so, while I was a bit wary about wearing a cream vintage dress amidst people swilling green beer, I am glad I took this 30s rayon which I bought last summer out of storage and wore it with my re-mix green shoes and green cardi (though it wrinkled again shortly after I steamed it!).  I also temporarily swapped the dress's white buckle for the green one on that brown dress I posted about previously.  Although you probably can't see in these pics, I couldn't resist a little fashion fun by having my nails painted green with little lucky four leaf clovers put on each thumb.

Tasha said...

That is a gorgeous outfit! I love the little pops of green, and the buckle does tie it all together very nicely.

I don't recognize that pair of Remix shoes, they are lovely and remind me that I really need a green pair of shoes!

Lauren said...

kindest thanks, my lovelies!!
Tasha: they're the pepper green Rita shoes from Re-mix. I am in LOVE with them. I think they come in red and other fun colours, too, including a slightly different green (I like the Pepper green better). :)

what I love about this dress is that under the flutter sleeves, the armpit areas are open, so I felt less guilty about the idea of dancing in it (no underarm staining). Still, the dress was stained when I got it and since I knew I had successfully cleaned it before, I knew that if more stains emerged, I could give it another clean without having to dye it. Anyway, thank you again for your sweet compliments!
