Okay, well, I told myself a while back that I wouldn’t buy any more clothes from the juniors department, but I may or may not have violated that with this dress from RVCA (pronounced “roo-kuh”).
They’re a casual line of surf-inspired SoCal clothing for guys and gals.
They’ve been around a while, but I’d never tried any of their stuff until recently, when I ordered a couple of tops and dresses on sale from Haute Look earlier this spring thinking that I’d be able to wear them when it warmed up outside.
And then I come to find out that the line’s also carried locally at stores like Tilly’s at the mall…where I always see teenagers hanging out.
This dress here isn’t super fancy at all, but it has subtle little flashes of flair that I like — a hem that’s slightly longer in the back, and a little twist in the straps.
I can’t seem to find this exact dress online right now, but here’s a similar design, the $40 RVCA High Priestess dress, if you’re interested.
Since there really isn’t much to the dress, I added some extra zip with a rose-colored cuff — which reminds me, I’ve been seeing rose gold everywhere lately! I guess it’s the metal of the moment — and some long feather earrings.
My favorite part. I’m wearing nude platforms here to make me look like I have longer gams, an illusion I use all the time, thanks to my towering 5’1″ frame.
Oh, and reason number 5,678 why I love shoes? They make it so easy to change up an outfit! — like to give this look a tougher, less girly edge, I might swap the platforms for a pair of ankle boots.
Now, where can I go to test out this outfit? Hmm…
Let’s see…fro-yo, movies, Japanese food, Trader Joe’s, Target, Panera, Petco, Sephora, See’s or all of the above?
What are you up to tonight? How was your afternoon?
