Then and Now: Watercolor, Tank Dress from The Limited.

Good Morning on this chilly, gray Tuesday. Last week I started a new feature on my blog titled "Then & Now". What is this feature, exactly? I take one item of clothing or an Outfit that I have worn 2+ years ago and re-wear it now, re-style it fresh. Last week I showed you my Fuchsia, Empire-Waist Dress. Today I have another Dress for you. This one is sort of a Water-color in Charcoal, Lavender, Navy, Orange & Baby Blue. It is a Tank style and more of a Summer Dress but with layering it can work for Fall. This time I wore it for a Pretty Warm Fall day, where I met a soon-to-be-mom friend of mine for coffee, with Vivian too, of course. If I'd wear this Dress today, I would try some Burgundy Tights with it, my Black Booties, a Long Pink-Ombre Necklace, some Dangly Crystal Earrings & my Green Military Blazer. I know that's a lot of Colors in one single Outfit but a lot of those Colors are Warm Neutrals so I can picture it in my head and it works.

This Tank Dress is from the Limited from Summer 2011. I bought it on clearance and loved it, but truth be said I only wore it this one time (from the Then Photo) in August 2011, to have Dinner & Cocktails and later go to the Movies with a Friend. Fast forward to October 2013 and this Dress was worn to meet another friend, paired with a Pastel, Pink-Coral Cardigan with Embroidery & some Fuchsia Rose Earrings. Pastels & Embellishments are big this Fall-Winter season and this Sweater has both. And it is from Wal Mart, yep. I know I styled this Dress very similarly to last week's "Then & Now" Dress but it worked. What do you lovely ladies think? Also, stay tuned for a Guest Post tomorrow & another one on Friday. I also got a special post for Halloween. Thanks for reading.
