Playing with The Chameleon

It's true. I'm seriously in love.
After so many years, dreaming of the perfect dress, I found it.
It was just before Christmas and it happened totally by chance, searching for all and nothing, here and there on Etsy.
I never bought a made to measure/custom made dress before (except maybe when I was a child, but it was mom that bought for me, so...) and the idea really intrigued me. Plus, I loved the idea I could buy it directly from the designer, an indie designer, a real girl, the lovely Vanessa, so no mass production, all genuine!

And of course, I fell totally in love with the idea, the clever design of this little jewel...

There are no words to describe how fabulous The Chameleon Dress II is, you should only take a look at the pictures. If you feel excited every time you buy a new dress (like me), you can imagine how you could feel purchasing a MULTI STYLE dress...
Infact, ss the name suggests, the The Chameleon Dress II "can be worn in multiple different ways depending on how you wrap twist and tie it. The dress starts out backless with two long branches of fabric at the front. By manipulating the branches you can achieve multiple sleeve variations as well as a variety of looks at the waist." And you can even wear it as a skirt!

The dress come with a tutorial DVD showing you how to achieve 7 different styles variations, but the possibilities are endless, really, all you need is your fashion creativity! Of course I spent the last two days playing, twisting, experimenting and taking pictures!

With my deep blue, midcalf lenght dress I feel I'm ready to cross the red carpet, but I love the idea I can even wear it everyday as a skirt!


I took the pictures below at sunset, so they're a little bit dark, but I like how the sun danced on my yellow wall...!





Sorry for my hairstyle...it was a bad hair day!
