What does one wear to a Regina Spektor concert? Something sweet and whimsical, of course!
Dress: Sugarhill Boutique via ModCloth | Socks (inside boots): ASOS | Boots: Fluevog Dawson City (GetUp family) | Purse: gifted, souvenir from India
(Sorry the pics are a little blurry ... taking indoor photos is difficult, but the sun was far too strong at the time for more outdoor pics.)
This lovely little dress is by Sugarhill Boutique, a fair trade company that seems to specialize in fine needlework designs -- as you see in the beautiful peacock feather/heart/ribbon embroidery, eyelet, and scalloped edges. It's also in one of my favorite colors, teal. All of the details plus the flattering shape made the dress a must-have for me when it went on sale sometime last year. I was saving the first wear for something truly special, and Regina Spektor's AMAZING concert was IT!
You can probably tell from the drape of the dress, but it's a thin fabric, which was great for the current summer heat in southern California. The concert was at night at the fantastic outdoor Greek Theater in Griffith Park, yet I felt perfectly comfortable throughout the evening.
The teal boots also turned out to be a spot-on choice for the night. Not only are they a gorgeous color, but these ankle boots are also super comfy, and I liked toughening up the look with a little cowboy / cowgirl sensibility. All in all, it was a sweet, magical night that followed a super-fun visit to the Los Angeles Fluevog store earlier in the afternoon. -- But more on that in another post!
P.S. I also thought this outfit was a (serendipitously) perfect fit for this month's Everybody, Everywear challenge of putting together a monochromatic outfit. :-)
