Wrong Way Right

Dress? handmade (I think), thrifted
Belt? Roots, thrifted
Shoes? Derek Lam
Eelskin clutch? thrifted
Necklaces? thrifted and Cuba
Sunglasses? Iceberg, Winners
Earrings? vintage from parents

I think I'm wearing this dress the proper way. My mom says no. She thinks the buttoned flap side is the front. The design details don't really give a definite answer and there is no shaping for the bust, so it's any one's guess. All I know, is that with my glam glasses and vintage clutch, I felt a little old Hollywood and if I had worn this dress the other way around, I would have felt like a 12 year-old school girl.
I wore this crush of necklaces earlier this week when I deemed that a shirt I had on was showing too much cleavage for a Wednesday night. Might it have been different if it was Friday night...? Anyways, I threw on every necklace I could to disguise my tarty ways, and since then, I've been putting them with everything. Like my belt, you might say, as it once again makes an appearance...

That dress is awesome! I love it the way you've worn it, especially with the piled-on necklaces. I love the cream and brown and white, then with that bright pop of teal.

I think it is such a cool unique dress, wear it both ways I say. It gives you more options.

Love the dress as you have it on- the other way would be quite prim and proper- and maybe in the winter with a turtleneck you'd be game for trying it that way too. Fab necklaces.

The way you are wearing the dress leaves the skirt opening in the back...at least that looks like an opening in the one picture. I like it your way :)
