Outfitted for China

Dress & hat, Gap. Cardigan, J.Crew. Belt, Joe Fresh. Sandals, Nine West.
out-fit
- noun, verb
Collective term for gear or equipment required for a ship being made ready or fit for sea. The preparation period known as "fitting out". The word outfit has gradually come to include clothes worn for a special purpose. [source]

Three years ago, I purchased this dress because it reminded me of a china pattern. The final sale rack was chock-full of these frocks, in every size imaginable, which makes me think that other girls are not so drawn to apparel reminiscent of crockery. Ah well, more for me.

So pretty! I was just thinking about clothes and things with patterns like that. I love the blue & white together.

I really like that green sweater and I like how you paired it up with blue and white, unexpected but perfect.

I'm loving your fancy Corelle dress! I was sad when I saw "3 years ago," I was hoping other crockery haters had left me one at the Gap, too.

Alessandra said...

Thanks for your comment, don't let your height stop you from wearing what you want. Throw on a pair of heels and your set to go.
