Turquiose and Brown Waistless Dress

I’ve had this dress for years and I still love it. It’s super comfy, is a neat Missoni-inspired pattern, and can be worn from early fall through late spring.

Dress: Ross Dress for Less
Tights: Target
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Cuff: Etsy

I’ve worn this with brown tights and tall boots before, but this time I thought I’d try booties and blue tights.

I realize that without a defined waist, this could easily look like maternity wear. I have no solution to that dilemma. Other than carrying a flask and reinforcing the “I’m not pregnant” look by taking swigs from it all day.

Sometimes a belt is a good way to define a waist, but this actually has pleats coming from a “princess waist” so a belt won’t work. I’m not too worried.

I was really happy when this cuff arrived in the mail. I got it from Etsy, to replace some leather cuffs I’d gotten rid of. This is a faux leather, embossed cuff that’s lightweight and adds a bit of cool, toughness to the outfit. Doing a search for faux leather cuffs was overwhelming–there were so many great results! But I narrowed it down and got this one and a red one from a great shop called Trailer Park Gypsy.

Do you shop on crafty sites like Etsy? It can be addictive! I just bought a wall decal for my bedroom from another shop on Etsy.
