Victorian Gap

Hi all !
I have a weakness for Gap rose prints and though this sundress was my new size, the top was iffy... But since I couldn't resist, I knew it would either end up as a skirt or vested. I'm not sure what the straight top is called other than umpire, but it seems like an early Victorian style. I call it "early bar wench", Or perhaps just a bit too tight up top. Luckily, I had my scarf ...
Though Gwyneth does it much better ;)
I've had it for a couple months and maybe this fall a sweater will do it better justice, though I just saw a style I really like....
A super high waisted, but rounded upwards skirt with a skinny belt. Hmmm....
What'ya think? Skirt it?
( This was way before my list pledge, or it would have stayed in Goodwill! )
Though, Gap, Roses, Dress with Pockets?
(I'm not sure I'm that strong, yet :)
Sorry, I've been MIA for a couple days, but it was well spent in the woods :)
Nothing like a good trudge through the weeds and rocks!

That dress looks amazing on you! I can see why you fell in love with the print- it's gorgeous. The color the print and the fit- yum! I like how the tan belt kinda adds some tough girl country to the mix too! xo. -Bella Q

I love this dress and I am still in shock that the scarf was fifty cents at Walgreens, because when I first saw it, I thought oh she dropped some bucks on the scarf!! I really like it. Want to sell it for $2 plus postage!!
