FBFF - A closer look

August 26 - Visual FBFF sponsored by Ashley Getting Dressed. We're
doing an upclose and personal look at a favorite clothing item.
Instead of just photographing it as part of an OOTD post, show us the
little details, the things you can't see from a far-away shot.

Okay, I'm fudging a bit here. I needed to wear maroon for a "tailgate" lunch thing at work today. (Lord, save me from the "fun" bits of working at a university!)  But, I do love this top. It's so fancy! I did try to take a picture of the center decoration, but all I got was truly scary photos of my chest attacking the camera. CAUTION: GIANT CHEST APPROACHING!! RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!! IT'S COMING STRAIGHT FOR YOU!! So, I decided to just post this pretty pic of the intricate embroidery and faux jewels on the sides of the collar. They really don't get shown off nearly as much as the center piece, anyway. I don't know if it's the color, or the decorations, but this top makes me think Edwardian. Which is silly, an Edwardian lady would NEVER get caught in something like this. [CORRECTION: After looking online, what I really meant was the dresses designed by Charles Frederick Worth, who was more Victorian.]

Also, these shoes are very adorable. Not very comfy, being all plastic, but very adorable with their flowers.

Top - Venezia, Pants - White Stag, Shoes - Avenue, Earrings - homemade.


  1. Your comments cracked me up! I love the color and jewels!

  2. You don't know how many times I try taking a picture of a necklace or a design on a blouse and get the same "chest warning" picture! LOL

    I love the design of your top and how it matches perfectly with those sandals.


  3. This cut of top is really flattering on you.
