dress: Urban Outfitters | flats: Target
botanical element: floral dress with hibiscus? blossoms
The first time I saw this dress I didn't like it because of the puffy sleeves. (My sister had posted the picture on Facebook. She was sightseeing in Washington, DC, so sneakers were the most comfortable shoes for walking.) I have since changed my mind and the gray, floral dress made it into my closet. It helped that she had left the country, and I raided her clothes. She is the best and has excellent taste.
Now, I like this dress. I like the lace overlay and the buttons. I'm a fan of V-necklines. And puffy sleeves? They are a welcome addition from the too frequent sleeveless dresses.
I'm currently in the San Francisco bay area to see my two girlfriends. The last time I was here was when my family came (immigrated) to the United States from Vietnam. We had spent a night in San Francisco.
I wore this outfit last Wednesday to bible study.
