This is nearly the same style of dress as the Leota in yesterday's post...with a bit of a sleeve instead of sleeveless. I would have liked this better with a cardigan...but it was a hot day. They call this red, but it was leaning toward I paired it with both colors. Same issue as always with Leota...they run small, & even sizing up to a is tighter than it's meant to be. 
What allowed me to enjoy wearing this dress the most...Beth Ditto lip leggings...aren't they smashing? She's taking a break from clothing design, but I hope she returns to it. I have her leggings in both size 22/24 & 26/28...the smaller ones fit better. When I get my craft room set up...I need to take the legs of these in on the bottom...they are too loose, so I have to pull them up into capri length. 
While I love my eyeshadow would have looked better with an orange or yellow cardigan...too much color next to all that white in the dress. 
My makeup with this outfit included...Kat von D eyeshadow in Analogue, Fran, Legend, & Swoon; Habanero lipstick by MAC, & Aloha from OPI nail polish from OPI. 
Haircut with Gen! Cha Cha moved into its new's gorgeous, but I miss the bright colors of the old building. I really liked this Evo salt spray she used on my hair...sticking this here so I remember to look for it somewhere I can use my cosmetologist license discount. 

David spied this clawfoot tub while I was getting my hair my excitement of saying...yes! I love it! I forgot to hit send on the I got to go with him to get it.  I have lusted over this house for years & heard it was being remodeled (a Madison restaurant owner lives there)...I was SO excited when we were invited inside to get a was even more fabulous than I imagined...pocket doors, high ceilings, & porches off many of the rooms *swoon*. 

That night...we went to see a special showing of The Castle of Cagliostro, a 70s anime movie that David had fond memories of.
