kitschy dress & fun factor

This is the first time I've taken pictures of my 'kitschy dress'. It's a dress I've sewn, as a 'guinea pig experiment' where I practise my skills before sewing the real thing. But I've decided to give it a try and wear it to go for a walk. Mr.A. has strongly disliked this dress (I think it's the one and only outfit of mine he has disliked ever). Even if I'm predisposed to look favourably on my dress, I think it's a Frankenstein kind of creature, kitschy and gaudy. Anyway, I've worn it for fun, and it worked as an inspiration to change my (bad) mood, to feel encouraged to wear more unexpected and crazy clothes. I really believe that fashion should be fun, even a faux pas!

Esta es la primera vez que saco fotos de este vestido 'kitschy' que me hice, ya que se suponía que era sólo un 'conejillo de indias' donde practicar mis técnicas de costura antes de aplicarlas en alguna otra prenda. Pero he decidido darle una oportunidad y ponérmela para salir por ahí. Mr.A. ha dicho que no le gusta nada, y creo que es la primera y única vez en que ha opinado en contra de alguno de mis conjuntos. Incluso aunque yo misma lo mire con buenos ojos, sigue siendo una cosa hecha de trozos estilo Frankenstein, algo chillón y raro. De todos modos, me lo he puesto porque me pareció divertido, y funcionó muy bien para cambiarme de humor (malo) y para animarme a llevar más prendas inesperadas y locas. De verdad creo que la moda debería divertirnos, incluídos los fallos!

  1. Always so marvellous you :) I hope you have a fab week xx

  2. I totally agree that fashion should be all about having fun. This dress IS fun! I love it and the colours you've chosen.

    That brooch is pretty sweet too.


  3. That's absolutely not a Frankenstein dress in my eyes. It's quirky and fun and the colours are lovely. And I'm totally in love with your brooch, which is so cute! Have a great week, Monica! Besos xxx

  4. I think your dress is fabulous! I love the colours and the flower detailing. You've styled it so nicely with the orange bolero and that brooch is gorgeous! XXX

  5. I think the best thing anyone can be is you and be happy about it. And it's quite encouraging to see an unapologetic person in her fashion style faux pas or no and still be great & confident about it. Thank you and this encourages me so much

  6. It's a lovely dress! I love the colours, the variety of plaids and the flowers. And it's unique. I also love your lady brooch on the orange cardigan - how sweet she is!

    So glad wearing your fabulous fun dress cheered you up.

    Hope your week is going well!

  7. You make trial dresses????? I bow down, and with so much embellishment. Man!
    Anyway this is totally not a practice Frankenstein dress. It is a work of wonder. I would be happy to own it. All those plaids working together, is such a playful happy piece.
    I'm glad you didn't let others' opinions carry the day. I also love your styling.

  8. I'm so impressed at your sewing skills Monica! The dress is quirky and fun, just like you so why would anyone not love it? And this is just a trial dress? I can't wait to see the real thing.

    Have a lovely day!

  9. I think it's a great dress - it's a cool mix of colours and patterns. Did Mr. A. say why he doesn't like it?

  10. YAY! What a wonderful dress, I am amazed at your sewing skills, my dear Monica! I am sure you will find more fun ways to style it and wear it often - it is such a unique, individual piece of clothing! I agree, it should be fun, playful, humorous even - I am moving that direction myself, in some ways. Lots of love!
