watercolor wash

floral dress, zara. wedges, target. necklace, soho street vendor.

if you look closely, it looks like the floral print on this dress was painted on in watercolors... perfect for a warm spring day.

with all the recent sex and the city 2 hoopla, i was reminded of the season when carrie, not in the least bit apologetic for it, unveiled the bright straps or band of her bra in nearly every ensemble. people were divided: was sex and the city challenging the norm that underwear should always remain under?

oh, the politics of the bra.

i love this dress, but the cut-outs in the back pose an annoying dilemma. luckily, i own a floral print bra in the same exact color scheme of this dress, and from far away, the band (kind of) seamlessly blends in. the straps, however, scream, "yeah, I'm showing my bra!!"

for those of you who, like me, aren't flat as a board, how do you feel about outfits that complicate what you need to wear underneath? do you avoid them altogether, or do you go to great lengths to find the perfect strapless/backless contraption to keep it all together?

  2. great dress! I can't go braless, so I typically have to avoid stuff like this, once in a while I will find something with an open back that just hides on of my adjustable bras ... those are happy days!
