After two good years of “Perhaps, maybe, oh no, well . . . let’s take another look,” I finally ordered a Pazzi dress.
It was, after all, on a deep sale, and was offered in this wild, almost garish golden-bronzy color, which will, I’m telling myself, complement my future summery golden-bronzy skin, in the months to come.
It was important that the dress not be in a “pretty” color—a pink or an aqua, because I want it to be more jolie laide than a girlish look. But paired with some flats and a topknot, I suspect it will work. We’ll see.
Update: The dress arrived yesterday and I'm quite pleased. The color is much more citrus-y that in the image--more yellow, but that's fine and cheerful for summer. And the dress is above my knee, though not as short as in the photo!
