Winterized paisley

I've only shown this dress on the blog once before (here), but it's actually a dress that I wore at least once a week during the summer. When the cold weather hit, though, I didn't have as much use for it - until the other day, when I realized I could just layer a turtleneck under it and stay toasty warm that way.

Do you see that blue bracelet in the photo below? I made it! Last year I kept saying I wanted to learn how to make jewelry, so for Christmas my aunt Gail got me a kit full of all the basic supplies I'd need, and on Sunday she showed me how to make a bracelet. I'm sure I'll just be making simple things at first (probably full of many errors), but I can't wait until the day that I know how to make some really wild pieces!

  1. Your dress is amazing! Jewelry making is something I would like to dabble in as well. Can't wait to see what you design.

  2. that dress is so pretty! while I think I prefer it's summertime incarnation, I love that you are making it work for winter too.

  3. Oh. My. Goodness. I think I'm in love with your dress!!! Such a great pattern, and bright popping colours. Love that you added the orange tights.

  4. I love your dress. Great job on the bracelet. Jewelry making is fun.

  5. This is a very pretty paisley dress and I love how you styled it for winter. And your DIYed bracelet is great as well!
