A few weeks ago, I showed photos of a red sleeveless dress with two different blouses underneath.
You may remember that one of the blouses, on its own, was kind of ugly.
Take a moment to refresh your memory.
It was ugly, but I have a tender heart and like to give everyone a chance, so rather than stuffing it right back into its packaging, I opened my closet doors and held the blouse before me — like a divining rod — to see if any matches jumped out.
Look what revealed itself unto me.
The Smashing Pumpkin Dress, which you can read about in this eponymous-ish post.
How improbable that the colors of a blouse that I bought to wear with a red dress should look perfect with a pumpkin colored dress? Particularly when I had intended to find a silky blouse to wear under the pumpkin dress, but then lost track of that goal?
Truly a miracle!
When one thinks about the color-wheel, perhaps this was not so improbable. Red and orange do live adjacently, and red is sort of the mother of orange . . .
So perhaps this union was a highly predictable event, and only a blind manatee could have missed the pairing? You decide!
And now, a few more views of the dress.
There is one small thing that I would change if I could.
Do you see the splash of bright red at the center-back of the blouse, just above the neckline of the dress? That red is not quite right here. But the splash of red is perfect when I wear this blouse with my red dress. So there shall be no meddling. I will accept things as they are.
Have a fantastic weekend!
