Slip It In

Monday, August 29, 2011
Brandilyn sent me this skirt a while ago and I just busted it out. (Thanks, B!!!) I've been meaning to wear it underneath a dress or skirt like a slip but I couldn't figure out the perfect belt-shoes combo and I still don't know if I've figured it out! It's like a science, I tell you. And I forgot to study. So I'm thinking of doing a do-over of this outfit.. What belt and shoes would go with this dress-skirt combo??

I'm wearing a thrifted dress ($5), vintage belt ($5), Panache skirt (gift from Brandilyn), JCPenney pumps (free), and vintage bag ($15).

  1. With such a whimsical dress/skirt/slip layering, I like the idea of a brighter colored belt, or a floral-print shoe/tote, or something not quite so "classic." That being said, I love the layered look, so cute!!

  5. Like the whimsy... and I'm immature enough to have totally giggled over your post title!

  6. That's so cute. It's a great way to add length to a skirt that may be too short. I'll have to invest in one of those.

  7. I love it when skirts peek out under dresses. I think you found the perfect heels for this outfit.

  8. i think your raspberry heels and a bright yellow belt would look amazing!

  9. Can you believe that I've never actually layered a skirt under a dress? I don't even know if I've layered a dress under a skirt! I'm pretty sure that makes me a bad style blogger. 

    You look great, though!

  11. I can't believe that dress is thrifted! This makes me want to go to a thrift store right now. And I love the shoes and bag!! I could see this for fall too. Plaid is amazing.

  12. Yes! this is such a cute dress!!! What a great find! I can't believe that it's thifted at all! I think the layered touch brings it together and gives it great personality.

  14. The layered look is totally working with this; love it!

  15. Cute!  I think this would look great with color...like your berry heels and your yellow necklace worn as a belt?

  16. I think you should go with a kelly green (or that jade that is so in this fall,) or red.  Basically, color.

  17. There are so many options. I would do a skinny yellow belt with some simple neutral colored sandals.

  18. love the shoes with the slip, but i would have gone for a brown belt! i seriously love that dress, too!

  19. Do you have a yellow belt? I think that would look good with this dress/slip.

  21. I love those shoes but are they comfortable?  Look like they would be hard to walk in.

  22. hello gorgeous! i've been a bad blogger :( oops. anyways, while you look adorable--i would say for a redo i would choose red belt and brown shoes. or vice versa.

  23. Looks great! You smashed it over the fence, Elaine! Personally, I don't like the shoes-buts that's me the 5"8 person who despise people who can wear high heels *GRIN*

  24. Something wide and bright, like yellow or red for the belt. You could then either do matching shoes or stay with those - I think they're my favorites of the ones I've seen you wear so far :-).

    Looks prim. Love the belt.

  28. I love the outfit! I would have just changed the colour of the belt, brown versus black :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. What a lovely dress on you!  I love how the skirt peeks out like that!  

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do you have any belts/shoes/bags in orange? Blue and orange are always a happy couple, in my opinion. These shoes already look great with the dress though. Your hair is so pretty when it's down like that :)

  31. i think it looks great! that type of skirt is definitely the way to go; makes it flare out & look fuller. but what do I know about fashion?

  35. I think brown shoes, but love the outfit as is.

  36. Thanks for the smile!

  37. I really love the effect the fuller skirt has under the dress! I think the pumps you are wearing are a perfect match with the rest of the outfit! The white/beige color pulls everything together. If you wanted to get really matchy, maybe try a white belt too.

  38. I like the combo. It would also look good with a brown belt instead of black. You could always go primary--red shoes and a yellow belt. That would be a definite statement but you could totally do it!

    ReplyDelete
  39. They are not the most comfortable shoes in the world but I love them :)

  40. I know, right? It's like the modern petticoat!

  41. Looks like the majority has spoken:  yellow belt it is! But! I don't have a yellow belt :(. Yellow scarf and yellow necklace, yes.
