This midi dress with ruffles immediately makes you think of a bon ton look. Bon ton? Me ?? Buahahahaha! Never! That’s why I styled it with a pair of historic but very rock peep toes: the Sam Edelman’s Lorissa!
As a swallow does not make spring so a midi dress with ruffles does not make a bon ton. And I’ll show you with this borderline look between classic and rock.
I found the midi dress with ruffles here (search ID: 1006185) and with the discount code Q2Selvaggia you will get a 15% discount for orders over € 39.
The midi dress with ruffles does not stand for bon ton
As I said, a dress can have a thousand shades depending on the matching accessories.
This dress, for example, with a sober décolleté and the same bag that I wear here (the Marcie di Chloè) can be suitable for a cocktail dress code.
But if, as in this case, we choose a peep toe sandal with studs like Sam Edelman’s Lorissa then the matter changes and the look becomes less classic and more modern. It is more suitable for me who does not like conventionality.
Of course at 49 I should, according to popular belief, be more tempered in my looks but it’s not me.
I think they will put me in the grave with a pair of studded shoes hahahahahaha!
I would never have taken a midi dress with ruffles like this if I hadn’t already had in mind to combine it like this. Indeed we say that it is precisely the Lorissa that inspired me!
Sam Edelman’s Lorissa, the catchphrase of summer 2011
In 2011 we witnessed a real revolution on the planet of shoes.
Sculpture heels sprang up, then precursors of jewel sandals like those of Giuseppe Zanotti arrived, and finally they were created, the Lorissa by Sam Edelman.
At the beginning they were only available in the United States and I obviously couldn’t wait and I bought them on an American site paying good taxes.
Indeed, I remember also having combined a problem with the measures, taking two measures less than mine.
Obviously I sent the shoes back and took the right size.
In any case, I liked Sam Edelman’s Lorissa so much that I also took them black!
From that moment I started to buy particular shoes until I came to the purchase of s Sophia Webster’s butterflies sandals.
Now, as you know, I am exhuming all these ancient finds because I realize that I have spent a fortune on shoes and bags and it is right that I make the most of them.
And do you have any little used purchases that you have decided to resurrect?
