Double Breasted High low Dress: How high can you go

There are just things I love, and on that list are double breasted outfits. Whether it’s a dress, a coat, a jacket or a suit; I just loving everything double breasted.

Be it men’s or women’s outfits there is just a feel and sophistication that comes with it; really looking forward to having a double breasted suit by the way.

This green high low dress is, I think my second or third double breasted item that I own and I absolutely love it.

Of course I looove heels and I just had to bring these two sweethearts together. The only downside to this dress is that depending with where I am going, mostly I will be forced to wear a tight or stockings. I could try fish nets as well I don’t know.

This is because well as you can see, the front is really high.

 

Eleksie Double breasted dressI really get the concept of high low, but it beats me why designers tend to go so high with the front. I mean we are not out to buy pretty dresses which we have to alter the look with a stocking. And more than that, we are not trying to buy dresses that expose our, you know what! with either.

But then most high lows are so pretty you just can’t help it. I really really admire designers; such creativity and effort.

Y’all designers out there, humble request, can you not go “so high with the high”, we really just want flaunt the dress and look pretty, feel good and comfortable with a bit of skin showing but not bare it all out for the world to see.

Wish I took more photos, but I hope these will give you the idea of how the dress looks like. It has that nice green and complements the body nicely.

The shoes are a gift from a friend, and I love them especially the velvet texture of it, and the straps.

Quote from the book Empty Roads & Broken Bottles

“So I am not a broken heart. 
I am not the weight I lost or miles or ran and I am not the way I slept on my doorstep under the bare sky in smell of tears and whiskey because my apartment was empty and if I were to be this empty I wanted something solid to sleep on. Like concrete. 
I am not this year and I am not your fault.
I am muscles building cells, a little every day, because they broke that day,
but bones are stronger once they heal and I am smiling to the bus driver and replacing my groceries once a week and I am not sitting for hours in the shower anymore. 
I am the way a life unfolds and bloom and seasons come and go and I am the way the spring always finds a way to turn even the coldest winter into a field of green and flowers and new life. 
I am not your fault.”
