ooooh reminds me of how much i lovvved that green dress keira knightly wore in that movie i'm forgetting the name of... the one where they think her bf raped that girl.

likely impossible for anyone else to wear.

tehresa, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 19:01 (ten years ago) Permalink

i don't think so, tehresa! i mean, it was made for her, obviously, but i could imagine a version of it on a curvier body.

the back may present some difficulties for those more... endowed... people.

its a gorgeous color. is that a bellybutton piercing in the middle?

lol!

tehresa, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 19:09 (ten years ago) Permalink

here is a link to the front of the Mad Men dress. i would also like all her jewelry.

horseshoe, Tuesday, 12 August 2008 19:24 (ten years ago) Permalink

It's a beautiful color, and the way the sides flutter around the back has a certain v graceful calla-lily appeal to me...unfort from the front it looks like it just doesn't fit her bust. Oh Keira Knightly-paws!

I don't get tv reception so I have no television-fed fashion desires! Hmm what dresses do I drool over...?

I hate those stupid Tory Burch shoes so so much (sorry, anyone) but um.........blufly has some TB dresses on sale that I drool over.

sunny successor, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:34 (ten years ago) Permalink

This one, too. Just think how variously you could accessorize an all-grey dress! Even though I can't wear grey anywhere near my face.

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:42 (ten years ago) Permalink

me either! its the blonde i think because it was fine when i had black/brown hair

sunny successor, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:44 (ten years ago) Permalink

That grey one is INCREDIBLE. love

Maybe with more lipstick. Which I never wear.

How much does it cost?

grey one is cute but would do horrible things on me.

i love the grey one!!

rrrobyn, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:46 (ten years ago) Permalink

Oh it's 40% off, making it a mere $237.

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:48 (ten years ago) Permalink

what brand is it?

rrrobyn, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:49 (ten years ago) Permalink

Tory Burch. Embarrassingly.

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:50 (ten years ago) Permalink

Grey is my favorite color and I think it looks good on everyone (except v light shades). What is the story of all this self-consciousness? I do not understand. Browns, too...all I wear is grey & brown, for the most part.

Abbott, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:55 (ten years ago) Permalink

Well, I'm pale and my hair is sort of blah light brown, not that much different from my skin (eyelashes and eyebrows are blonde and invisible). I'd wear that dress but I would need something really colorful around my neck, a scarf or jewelry. And prob a bright lipstick.

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:57 (ten years ago) Permalink

But accessorizing is about 80% of the fun of getting dressed, so that's perfect!

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:58 (ten years ago) Permalink

The only color I can't really wear is RED bcz it highlights my enviable acne.

Abbott, Thursday, 14 August 2008 19:58 (ten years ago) Permalink

love grey and i am pale! but i have darker hair.

i like this sweet pea dress, but it is only avail in S.

hey, is that Saleisha?

I wear a lot of black with blue, yellow.. never could get into brown. I think putting on brown makes me a granola hippie or something. Plus with the red hair I'd become an apple tree!

Finefinemusic, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:00 (ten years ago) Permalink

hmm...looks like her, but i'd need to see a zoom on the face for definitive yes.

tehresa, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:01 (ten years ago) Permalink

Abbots, if you highlighted yr acne all the girls would want some, I guarantee it. So you better stay away from red indeed, or you'll be mobbed!

(PS I am v self-conscious abt my skin too but I'm trying a new phase of "no one notices as much as I do" and going out anyway. So far no complaints. Most people aren't really very observant, on the whole.)

Laurel, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:02 (ten years ago) Permalink

Having hair that is dyed fun colors does throw a kink into outfit coordination.

I <3 yr hairs btw. xxp

Abbott, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:02 (ten years ago) Permalink

i thought it was saleisha but I wasnt sure! here are some shots that look more like her:

(this is actually quite true - xpost to laurel - even one of my close friends, who is pretty observant and fashiony was really surprised when i mentioned once how i was feeling lacklustre b/c my skin was crappy that day - she said she thought my skin always looked good! it certainly does not! but i do usually wear at least some sheer foundation or cover-up tho. on the other hand, i'm sure that there are some people who totally notice - and of course their opinion counts the most right? LOL. ugh. silly.)

i prefer dark grey to light grey

rrrobyn, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:09 (ten years ago) Permalink

Next time I get my hair done it will be a magentaish red, which will really screw me - I've got a red hoodie that compliments this shade of red perfectly, and will probably be unwearable when I have pink tones. Sigh. Dressing really was a lot easier when I had blonde hair, but I'm only young once!

I am confused about the possible Saleisha.. she looks a LOT like her but I haven't seen those pics before, and the Livejournal ANTM community is very thorough about posting any that are found..

Finefinemusic, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:13 (ten years ago) Permalink

probably her. hard to tell w/out the tootie cut. if it is her, she lookin haggard.

tehresa, Thursday, 14 August 2008 20:14 (ten years ago) Permalink

these were on an invite only site for a specific collection. maybe theyre not anywhere else?

Yeah I am definitely NOT wearing weirdly shaped, awkward-length black pants and a tunic that would be right at home on a lunch lady rn, definitely not.

I legitimately got stopped on the street the other day and asked if I work in fashion, hahahahaha. It really made me feel good about the awkward mid-calf army boots I threw on because of the rain with my regular black pencil skirt. But mostly my hair distracts and confuses people; my clothes are boring

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Friday, 12 June 2015 19:29 (three years ago) Permalink

why do you think i got tattoos?? i can basically wear frumpy whatever clothes and they get a little boost from the hipster element.

just1n3, Friday, 12 June 2015 19:41 (three years ago) Permalink

tattoos go really well with sleeveless housedresses imo ... and I just realized I forgot to post to this thread about my LA vacation which was partially spent looking for vintage housedresses. I figured that outside of Florida, LA would have a great selection. Was a bit disappointed tbh but I got a couple gems.

one day I will have tattoos too! But I bought 3 of the same black spandexy pencil skirt a few weeks ago because of my new job (& because I love them), so my wardrobe isn't going anywhere exciting anytime soon.

my LA vacation which was partially spent looking for vintage housedresses
damn that sounds like so much fun
i don't have any tattoos and i think some people expect me to be more square than i am (maybe) but that's their problem

Florianne Fracke (La Lechera), Friday, 12 June 2015 20:36 (three years ago) Permalink

the most noticeable thing about LA vintage stores vs. SF Bay Area ones -- LA stores are so much bigger!

i bet the clothes were really outlandish too -- i love to try on ridiculous costumey things and LA seems perfect for that
i did some thrift shopping in maine and it was pretty great -- i got a shirt + some earrings in belfast and was wowed by the selection in bangor even though i didn't have any room in my luggage :(

Florianne Fracke (La Lechera), Friday, 12 June 2015 20:43 (three years ago) Permalink

decluttered a yr or so ago, got rid of tons of dresses, but kept a few things i couldn't bear to give to goodwill.

so, posting those on fb now, all mostly unworn, plus a couple of camisoles & a tshirt (new). all women's sizes M or L.

so much stuff i never wear!

JuliaA, Wednesday, 24 June 2015 17:22 (three years ago) Permalink

ahh I have been so all over the place since we got back from vacation that I have not had a chance to get on here and say CARL! I got the dress and it is beautiful and my exact preferred shade of blue!! :) I have not tried it on yet because my house is a disaster and I almost immediately lost it in a pile of clothes while unpacking but I am going to dig it out this week and possibly wear to a winery* this weekend!

*I really hate wine tasting type activities but sometimes that's what you gotta do on a girls' weekend to be a fun team player type friend

(thank you, Carl!!)

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Monday, 6 July 2015 19:21 (three years ago) Permalink

You're so welcome! It would be a good dress to wear to a winery because it's pretty comfortable and uncomplicated so you can get wasted in it without worrying about a wardrobe malfunction.

from batman to balloon dog (carl agatha), Monday, 6 July 2015 20:04 (three years ago) Permalink

People would not shut up about how much they loved the dress! I hope you enjoyed my instagram preening, haha. I'll get you back one day! Let me know when Ivy is big enough to wear a women's small tee, because my friend put a Blondie tshirt into a goodwill bag and I snagged it, too sad to let it ride out into the ether

I don't think I can not get it, honestly. Look at it. It's ridiculous and amazing, has pockets, and is on sale.

dresses with pockets are key

God I know. Also I'll be riding in a car from Chicago so something comfortable would be nice, and this fits that bill, too. And it's long enough that I won't feel like I need to wear stockings.

i vote yes but only if you have a somewhat matching hair accessory, otoh i have never been to Milwaukee, a place i imagine where ppl eat ambrosia salad unironically, so

sarahell, Thursday, 13 August 2015 06:40 (three years ago) Permalink

I have no idea about the hair accessories, love the dress, and would like to learn from this by hearing about what kind of shoes should be worn with it.

ljubljana, Thursday, 13 August 2015 11:16 (three years ago) Permalink

pretty pretty dress, must get!

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Thursday, 13 August 2015 11:46 (three years ago) Permalink

I don't know about hair accessories (my hair is really short rn anyway). I have a pair of shoes I planned to wear but I would be very interested in seeing what shoes stylish people would recommend to see if my shoe instinct is anywhere near correct.

carl agatha, Thursday, 13 August 2015 11:51 (three years ago) Permalink

you may not have been to Milwaukee, sarahell, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.

kinder, Thursday, 13 August 2015 12:35 (three years ago) Permalink

vote yes on the dress! very colorful, i like it.
milwaukee is super cool, ambrosia salad is not otm (maybe other parts of wisconsin but mke is home to some really cool ppl, ppl you would like sarahell!)
shoes? i know you don't like heels (i don't either) but i think you could probably wear whatever slightly dressy shoes you want because the shoes will not be the focal point of your outfit, the print of the dress will. the plainer the better in a situation like that imo.

La Lechera, Thursday, 13 August 2015 12:54 (three years ago) Permalink

xp to self, I'm sorry, I always have to do that at any mention of mil-e-wah-kee, that and Delaware. "Hi! I'm in Delaware")

I've visited Milwaukee and loved it. It has a flying art museum (sort of - it has flapping wings), a great market, nice buildings...
