All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

This is one of my most sweet and girlish dresses; it is reserved for days when I don't mind those adjectives being applied to me. The colors always remind me of ice cream and I'm melting like a bowl of that in this summer heat. I might ramble too much about the heat lately, but it is becoming the most significant character in this drama called my life. It's also the villain.

Wow, I love this! So lush! Seeing your summery outfit pics makes me wish it was summer in Cape Town. x

Joanna said...

Beautiful dress! And I'd say you look rather lady-like more than "cute."

I'm surprised you can wear a trench in the heat. Love the Coach bag. =)

Lovely dress! It immediately made me think of neapolitan ice cream, mmmm.

You look like liquorice! I agree with Joanna, it looks very ladylike; espacially when combined with the coat.

Jenn said...

This is such a great dress! I love the shape of it. And the added trench is too cute!

I love it when that dress makes an appearance, though I also usually avoid overly "sweet and girly" things. I can't even look at that trench coat in this heat though!

That dress is lovely, and I really like it paired with that coat. I like the softened colors, and how well they work for summer.

I remember Sandra Beijer wearing this dress last year and thinking, man, that woman is absolutely adorable.

You are equally lovely. You two create a special upper echelon of style.

This dress is so sweet. I especially love the jacket over it. Adds an extra look of sophistication if you needed to wear it to work;)

@Closet Cravings, the jacket was only layered here b/c that's what I tend to wear indoors--I get so cold in A/C! :)

You look gorgeous in this dress. Our heart is also the protagonist and the villain of our life...we just have to know how to treat it though and it will behave like a good boy ;)

I love it! The black stops it being too girly-girly though I think

Frannie Pantz said...

why the post title? you do know it comes from the communist manifesto, right? it's a bit ridiculous to have it adorning a post with pictures of pretty clothes.

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@Anonymous, you don't like a touch of the ridiculous? I think it's ironic.

So light and fun! I love beautiful dresses with sleeves...they are so easy to wear and a lot less body conscious for me :)

Heat is the evil villain in my life to, I am melting away each day. But how could you have that coat in this heat? That dress though is perfect for the summer.

Sidewalk Chic said...

Beautiful dress, Rebecca! I love the ice cream reference, because it does remind me of Neapolitan.

Archiex said...

How do you manage to take such photos in this sweltering heat? The humidity alone is enough to drown a girl.

Fun stuff this dress is gorgeous. And I love that trench to pieces. Way too hot in Texas to even consider throwing on a trench in the summer.
