Passion For Fashion #25 : Train of Thought :

Dress: ModCloth ''stylish surprise'' // Sweater: Thrifted // Tights: Old Navy // Bag: Urban Planet
Funny story about this dress... it's another sweet stylish surprise from Modcloth and I was so excited when I got it, but sad because it seemed ill-suited for the Fall weather we're experiencing right now.  I tried it with a cardigan, but I still felt like I looked I was trying too hard to hold onto Summer.

BUT(!!) after putting it on, I realized I couldn't get it off.  The zipper was stuck.  So I had to make it work.  I had forgotten I even had this sweater, but I layered it over the dress, threw on a pair of fall-colored tights, my favorite TOMS wedge booties and I was good to go.  I loved that my new oversized skull bag worked with the look too!  Fashion crisis averted!!

Also, totally unrelated to this post... but I am trying to win a new camera.  All you have to do is click here and like my photo on the Kia Canada FB page.  Thanks!!

  1. You look great. Sorry the zipper got stuck, that has happened to me a few times, but usually in the store trying it on and I have to get my husband to help, haha! ;)

  2. Well it looks great with the sweater layered over it. And I am loving the subtle skull details on your bag!

  3. haha! I love that a stuck zipper was the inspiration needed to create this outfit! And I also love the railroad pictures. I've always been partial to railroads...

  4. love a girl who can work herself out of a fashion mishap! ... nicely done! enjoy your weekend:)

  5. I am totally guilty of wearing my summer style dresses year round! It looks great with the sweater.

  6. thats to bad the zipper stuck. I try very hard to ensure my summer dresses can be worn in the winter too!

  7. That dress actually makes a good fall layering piece- thumbs up to the stuck zipper :) Love the tights!

  8. Lena, hi! You know what I love about your blog/posts? Your artistic photographs! You don't just pose in your fashions, you are artistically placed in an grand photo. Your ensembles are great and your fashion sense is spot on but the way you present them to us as a viewing audience is sensitive, carefully planned out and in a word; demure, ya demure ~

    Now to get caught up on the posts I have missed this week.

    1. Oh and I am a so impressed that you 'stuck' with the dress and it's options while stuck in it. Yes, tremendous ensemble, too!

  9. I absolutely LOVE everything about this outfit! All the way down to the skull detail on your bag. It doesn't look "summery" at all, I think it is the PERFECT fall look! Definitely pinning! It was a happy accident for everyone! ;)


  10. What a way to make it work! I love how you always bring a fun edge to the look, like with the skulls-embossed bag. :)

  11. You made it work for sure! Love it with the red tights. So fun.
