These flirty flounce wrap dresses from Kiyonna are always a hit with me. Gwynnie Bee used to carry a lot of these...but this is the first new one I've seen in a while. I've also worn this dress in black,  evergreen, & many other colors & own it in red & black & white dots. Kiyonna makes fantastic fitting wrap dresses, but this is my favorite style as the ruffles add a bit of interest without being too cutesy.
Floral dress, floral cardigan, floral shoes, floral jewelry...flower power ensemble. 
I wore this outfit to work & to go out with Kate. 
My makeup with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Deep End, Anastasia eyeshadow in Venetian Red & Primavera, Huda Electric Obsessions eyeshadow palette, NYX Liquid Suede lipstick in Kitten Heels, Quince lipstick from Bite Beauty, Teal the Cows Come Home nail polish by OPI. 
The girlie & I had been trying to find time to try Mint Mark, a new restaurant in the hood that everyone has been raving about. I like what they've done with the space...& they make a great Moscow Mule.
Kate & I nibbled our way through the menu...roasted cauliflower, white bean spread with flatbread, chicken liver on cinnamon raisin toast, kale with a cold poached egg, sweet potato gnocchi, & sauerkraut pierogi. It was all tasty, but neither of us understood what all the hype was about & this will most likely be our only visit to Mint Mark...especially since we've both moved to different parts of Madison. 
This Monkey Gland cocktail was the only thing I wasn't sure about...things that make you go hmmmmm. But check out that woman's fabulous coat! The next day I had lunch with Kate & Jason at Banzo & I took a picture of their parking lot as a possible photo shoot location...colors!

  1. I love the's very retro. And thank you for posting your tights colors. You confirming these are teal confirms that the ones I wore a week or two ago were as well (I couldn't remember if they were teal or scout green.)

    I haven't had the best luck with the Whimsy Wraps - I am too straight-up-and-down, I think, and the prints make me feel like a couch from 1985. If they would make a version with colorblocked ruffles & belt, I would like it much better. This also makes me want to dig out some long-neglected lipsticks...I'm almost POSITIVE that Bite Beauty color is lurking somewhere in one of my makeup holders.
