Happy Tight Ass Tuesday! I’m so obsessed with sleeve detailing right now. From flared sleeves to oversized French cuffs, I love it all and my latest obsession is the split sleeve. Such a small design consideration has such a big impact on the simplest of garments. Take this black shift dress, elegant and simple. Add in some split sleeve detailing and it’s now possibly the most fabulous thing in my wardrobe! With the impact of a cape yet without the limited functionality, the splits move with the body, sometimes showing glimpses of skin and sometimes showing a lot, who thought forearms could be so suggestive. This dress is a steal at only $59.95 from Esther Boutique
I’ve dressed the look to be suitable for a night time event with small clutch bag and statement caged booties. Even while the hemline is very short making the dress essentially a mini, the cut of the sleeves and slightly looser fit suggest a more elegant appeal. I’ve been thinking of ways to get more wear from this dress and think I could pull off wearing it to work as a blouse, tucked into some tailored trousers. I’ll be sure to share that experiment on my Snapchat! If you a fan of Snapping, follow me @ happy_schnapper for my more candid moments.
