paint splatter

First off, I just want to say sorry for being MIA lately. As with every single one of us, life happens  and we get caught up in how hectic, stressful, crazy, overwhelming  things are at times (is it okay to say this on a fashion blog? Lol) .  Needless to say, we try to get back to the normalcy of things so here I am as I try to get back on track with the things that I love doing.  Second, excuse the title of this post, lol. I have not a drop of creative juice left in my brain right now and really, doesn’t this dress/top look like it has paint splatter all over it?? On to a more blog-related discussion, this top was actually sold as a dress but I guess for  a tall person such as moi, it isn’t. Have you ever bought something where you fell so in love with how it looks but unsure of how to really wear it BUT ended up getting it anyway? Well, this is one of those buys. I knew I couldn’t wear this as a dress, obviously because I do not want to be arrested for indecent exposure, duh. Hahaha.  So my go-to solution for fashion dilemmas  such as this, wear it as a top! I think it works… it does because I have no other choice. Lol. Sorry for this very unhelpful fashion post, I hope y’all got a good laugh from it, though!
As always, thank you so much for reading and see you on my next post!

  1. Love this look ! Your top is great !

  2. You look amazing in this outfit!! Your top is so pretty-I love the colours and pattern mixing, so chic!

  15. such a pretty pattern on this dress/top! i laughed when i read the indecent exposure line. i have a few pieces that could possibly be a really short dress or a long top -- 9 times out of 10 i'll wear them as a top.

  17. You are too funny! I have the opposite problem - anything that looks like a tunic on a model will be a knee length dress on me. :) So I haven't quite had to deal with turning a dress into a shirt! LOL. However, that is a beautiful top/dress depending on your height and I love the way you styled it!
