Old Navy Urban Explorer dress

So, you remember this dress from a post last week? Well, I thought it was a dress, but it was really described as a tunic on the Old Navy website and then I said I would wait for mine to arrive before ruling it out as a dress. Um, the possibility of this tunic being worn as a dress is definitely ruled out now. It’s far more tunic than dress, in other words, bits would be on display if you wore it with no pants.

Oh, but I’ve found it to be a great little cotton number. Love the print and the top is completely airy and soft to touch. Paired with a good pair of jeans this tunic will probably be THE summer top for me. I do recommend that you use a safety pin to secure the upper body of the tunic because the v-neck is cut very deeply (like, way passed the chest). Using a safety pin will help make sure you don’t have a wardrobe malfunction. But no one here will judge you if you wanted your wardrobe to malfunction, you know… on purpose.

Tribal prints, love them for Spring and Summer this year. I found these images from designers who also created pieces featuring or were inspired by tribal prints.

Is it over?

Footless tights

Is the footless tights trend dead?

For me the answer is yes the trend is over and we all should let it go.

I think tights of any shade so long as they are not footless are a good thing right now… a really good thing. Look at the many, many designers who are designing their catwalk looks around opaque tights.

My thing about footless tights is that they can chop your leg off in all the wrong places; especially the ones that stop below the calf. True, there are scenarios when the footless tights totally work, but it is my opinion that the trend is usually styled wrong and ends up looking cheap and/or sloppy.

So, is it over? Yes or no?
