When I made the halter dress from VoNBBS, I shared my worries about it here (backless! gaping sides! oh my!). Well, I tried it with a little jacket, and I'm feeling better about it.
I wore this to work on Friday, and was happy with it. I think the top looks nice peeking out of this red jacket, which is from Anthropologie about 4 or so years ago. I felt very put together in this get-up (though I also felt like I had a dirty little secret, wearing such a racy dress under a work jacket!).
But I think this dress plus jacket/cardigan is a nice idea to get more wear out of other summer dresses as well.
What do you think?
P.S. I'm wearing my new yellow Anthro crinoline under it. As you can see, the pouf is very understated, which I like. But the crinoline length is a little short, in my opinion. I might need to add some extra layers to it!
