Dress - Trashy Diva
Cardigan - I can't remember
Shoes - Walmart
Bandana - Walmart
This was our second day visiting Brookgreen Gardens, if you missed what I wore on our first trip there, you can see it here.
The Mister is a huge Sci-Fi fan and since it was his birthday that we were celebrating, I chose the adorable rocket print version of the Trashy Diva Trixie dress, but, I believe this print has since sold out on that style.
I ordered the same size in this dress as I did the Annette dress but the fit was entirely different. I probably could have sized down a size with this dress and I'm guessing that is due to the elastic sides.
The dress itself is very well made of a slightly stretchy cotton material. It is not lined and the skirt is not as full, more of a true circle skirt with no gathers. Even though you are not really able to see it in these photographs, the top has a cross-over front and has sort of an inner bra setup to provide support along with the straps that tie behind the neck.
The day before these photos were taken, we spent a couple of hours playing with our grandson on the beach and it just so happened I forgot to apply any sunscreen to myself, the results of which is this terrible sunburn you see here. Over the last few years I have developed a sun allergy. Its not to the point where I can't be in the sun at all, but when I am out for any period of time across a couple consecutive days, I will break out in a horrible, itchy rash. I have found, though, that if I get out a few minutes a day and slowly build up a tan, it doesn't happen as bad. And, yes, I know the dangers of the sun but I am one of those stubborn women who enjoys sporting a suntan in the summer.
But, I digress........ Because of the sunburn, I threw on this little butter yellow cardigan to try to shield my already burnt shoulders from acquiring any more sun. I wore the same, comfortable walking shoes as before and threw a bandana in my hair, which had actually been set into a dry pincurl set the night before, but the humidity pulled the curl right out resulting in, you guessed it, frizz.
Overall I like this dress, but I think if I get this style again, I will size down.
