Week O’Nautical – Blue Slip Dress

Week O’Nautical – Slip Dress

Week O’Nautical looks are kicking off with a great blue slip dress!  What is more nautical than the many shades of blue in the ocean.  Blue is my favorite color so when I saw this mark. New Angled Slip Dress I knew it would be a good addition.  With the 90’s resurgence slip dresses are back in a big way.  Here’s how I styled a slip dress in a slightly nautical way.

This mark. New Angled Slip dress is the most beautiful shade of blue, making it perfect for nautical styling.  Besides it’s nice quality flowing fabric and a super easy style this dress is also REVERSIBLE!   The underside is a gorgeous ocean turquoise color, so it’s like 2 dresses in one!  For this Week O’Nautical look I wore the royal blue but check back for an upcoming look with the turquoise side.

For my curvy figure I needed to add a little shape, so I added this thin gold wrap belt (mark., old).  It was still loose enough to keep the flowy look of the dress but still gave me some shape to the slip dress.

A nautical look isn’t complete without it’s gold accessories which work beautifully with this blue.  Besides the belt I added the mark. Twice As Nice Necklace, Avon Signature Watch and Avon Smooth Sailing Charm Bracelet (coming next week to http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).  The Avon Smooth Sailing Charm Bracelet is the ULTIMATE Week O’Nautical Accessory!
