I think that sometimes people who actually feel things deeply are thought to be too soft to act; but they do act. Maybe not in the way intended, but they do. I can't say whether I feel things deeply or not, but I know I have moments when I'm malleable and I even feel things I don't think I should be feeling. Then again, I have moments when I'm like wildfire and I don't give a crap if the roof collapses on both our heads. It's gold, no? To be able to feel and not feel. It's pure gold, not sprinkles of woven gold threads like on my dress. Just a lump of pure gold; to logically stare objectively as people are whipped up and shaken in the throes of their own emotions and then decide if you'd want to get caught up in all the brouhaha. A large bar of pure gold too; to unwittingly get snatched up in a moment by your own unperceived emotions.
Ah, well. With a gold dress as this I can always control the final outlook like I've done these three ways I've styled it.
Outfit 1: Tutu Perfection
I made a good purchase when I got this tutu skirt and I've said over and over how it's made dressing up short dresses so easy. I'll keep tooting its horn because it's worth the praise. Here, I wore it underneath this gold lace dress for glam and length and wore my brown Ann Mariano pointies to give a nod to Fall.

Outfit 2: Fall Classic
On first impulse I wore this embroidered gold dress with black skinny jeans and then contemplated what foot wear would go with the look. I need shoes! Lol. Don't we all. Anyway, I went with my faithful brown Franco Sarto block heels and the matchy random shop bought bag.

Outfit 3: Ladylike Feminine

For this last look I layered the embroidered gold dress underneath a skirt and cinched in the waistline with my belt of the moment; the gold leaf belt from Zaful. I'm also eyeing the leaf tassel belt. There are several ways I could wear that. Did I mention that this skirt was originally a dress which I had converted.
