Greek Goddess

Today I’m honored to be a guest poster with Ada from Elegance & Mammyhood 

Purely by accident, I found this draped dress and I'm pretty sure that the design was inspired by chiton clothing - the oldest Greek garments that have survived for centuries. Greek clothing was very simple yet elegant, and always displayed a spectacular look - with elaborate drapes and pleats at the waistline and below the neckline. Such drapes add a soft touch to the outfit and give a more feminine appearance.
When I tried on this Greek-style dress my first thought was to make a total Greek goddess look. So another ancient Greek element, airy and comfortable gladiator sandals, came in handy. For the complete ancient Greece look I rolled my hair into my headband.

What I'm wearing:
dress - Banana Republic // similar
sandals - Dizzy // similar
bag - Lucky Brand // similar
metallic tattoo - Walmart // similar
headband - Walmart // love this one
I found that for some reason I couldn't reply to a comment on my own blog. My reply button just disappeared. I want to let you know that I always appreciate the time out of your day for visiting my blog and every comment that you leave here. I can't thank you enough,
