W E A R I N G / Lazy Weekend Attire

 photo LOVEAESTHETICSathome.jpg

One of those stay at home Saturdays, when it doesn't really matter what you wear, heating is on and there are no weather-related wardrobe requirements. Might as well wear that impossible dress that never gets to see any daylight.

Made this piece for NYE, but can't think of another occasion to wear it again before summer yet I love it so much. It is exactly the dress that I always hope to find when thrifting; one that might have a history of 1995 cocktail parties. Unfortunately I haven't found that fantasy yet, so I had to make it myself. Though it looks like the simplest design it must have been the most confusing dress that I've ever made; Folded the thin white fabric twice horizontally and vertically, making some cutouts and stitches, folding it back the other way around to finally make it come together by adding a leather string.

Dressed it down with an oversized hoodie and a pair of trainers and no mascara, though coincidentally these are all elements of the the typical lazy-weekend dress code, this time I also deliberately chose them to underdress this dress.

dress: self made
hoodie: boyfriend's

My idea of lazy weekend wear is wearing a pair of old skinnies and a thermal. It's official. You're more chic than I will ever, ever be! Ha. This is an ace outfit.

You made an awesome dress but I don't think I'd wear it around the house, that is specifically for sweats & over sized tees.

I can't believe you made this dress, it's fab and looks so high fashion! Your lipstick really brightens the look and wearing your boyfriends hoodie is a really cute touch!

I absolutely love your blog, and this dress is just memorizing! I sew myself and I'm still trying to figure out how you constructed this beauty.

a dress really suits you... perfect.

I wish I looked this good dressed down...

P.S. The hair's looking great right now!

Sarah said...

I love the impulse to create something that you're unable to find. As soon as you mentioned that you made the dress yourself yourself, it was so obvious.

I bet your excited for the summer months when you can wear this custom piece out. Until then, lounge on.

Melanie said...

Your style is so individual! I love how you dress in an easy way, but always with a strong effect!
