Don't be afraid of color *eek!*

I love knit dresses. I could live in them, they're figure hugging, warm, comfortable, and easy to dress up or down.

This particular shade of green looks fantastic with leopard, more unexpected that the standard red and animal print.

So gorgeous. The curve hugging dress with the leopard print is very pin-uppy.
And you have such a pretty flock of bird brooches!! They add such a nice element of interest to all your looks; I never wear any of my brooches for some reason, but I should really start.

You look tres chic like this. Knit can actually be a little problematic because it's figure hugging but it looks fantastic on you :)

Anja said...

Awww, what a lovely dress!
You look really sexy :)

this is probably the hottest outfit i've seen you sport my dear. snug sweater dress with the hint of kitty goodness and a sexy little beret...oh yes! all time favorite outfit!!!

Penny Dreadful said...

This outfit is absolutely stunning.

I love knit dresses too, but somehow can never find any that suit me. Often they have too low a neckline, which just seems wrong for something that should be a little cosy!

What a breath of fresh air! I'm been craving colour ever since the autumn clothes came out and all you see around is black, gray, brown, boring, boring, blah, blah everywhere. LOVE that pin as well! And the belt is to die for!

i love knit dresses too, as they make my thin frame look a bit more shapely :) and they are pretty while being comfy and worry free, not too much fuss!

You look stunning! Colour can be a scary thing (especially in Melbourne, Australia where everyone wears black) but who cares if you stand out I say ^U^

That dress looks amazing! I've never bought a knitted dress myself though - I'm always concerned it will stretch out.

Elsa said...

i love this sort of green, i've got many clothes in this color ! and you're totally right, leopard print and green look fantastic !

Casey said...

You look gorgeous--I gasped when I saw the first photo! This is making me want to send my little vintage sweater set I got recently to the cleaners to get it ready to wear (if only the weather would cooperate!). I especially love the animal print belt with this shade of green; it's far more striking than the usual pairing of red/black.

Beautiful! I would like to echo the "thanks" for reminding me to wear my brooches more often.

What a great outfit! I've been looking for something like the dress you are wearing, but no luck yet. Finding the right length is the trickiest bit...

Ahhh - You look absolutely breathtaking in that dress not to mention the fact that I *adore* that dress to pieces, especially the color! I've been looking for a knit dress in that exact shade of green and haven't had any luck so far... >_<

gina said...

The color is lovely on you, and the leopard print belt is a lovely touch.

Xtabay Liz said...

Oh my God....Solanah, that is seriously gorgeous on you. I love the leopard belt with it....I'm thinking I might need to make you a special deal on that blue knit dress with the matching beret I have at Xtabay. You really do a knit dress justice!
