It may seem early in the life of this blog to be self-referential, but you may remember that I wore a Shadow Dress a few weeks ago? And have advised you to buy a dress in more one than one color if it fits you perfectly?
Behold Shadow Dress’s doppelganger:
The ivory and grey seemed perfect for spring to me. But the superstar here is clearly the footwear.
These silver loafers are so fun. Obviously, they work well with grey; they could enliven any outfit that involves light grey trousers. But I also think they would look great with a shift or a-line shaped dress in a summery color. For some reason, I am thinking of sherbets: lemon, lime, orange, raspberry. The cut-outs are perfect for spring/summer weather because they lighten the look without being bare. Feet must be covered at the office.
Come closer to see the details:
I did have this dress hemmed and, at the time, thought about leveling the hem, but decided to leave it asymmetrical. The bodice of this dress is looser (just a bit) than the black one, proving that even standardized garments have a little variation among them.
Have a terrific weekend!

The shoes have a great Thoroughly Modern Millie vibe. And I’m sure Carol Channing had a cure for prominent veins… SOY SAUCE??? Also I would like to brag to your other readers that I am fortunate to know you personally and have access to your closet so I will be borrowing BOTH shadow dresses in the very near future. Many thanks!
Finding your blog is like a dream come true. Thank you.
