Tablecloth Dress


The monsoon season started or something... I wanted to take some pictures of what I wore yesterday, but you know those rainstorms when it's literally pouring, and from every possible direction? Yep, I was caught up in one of those and was soaked to the skin. Brrr!
Anyway, the great thing about clothes - I can always wear that outfit some other time. 
Once it's all dry. :)

The same kind of rainstorm hit today, but luckily I was still at work and rushed out immediately after to take these photos while the weather cooperated.


It makes me smile to see the huge dots with the tablecloth-like dress. :)
In a recent blogpost Pau over at Titine and Totoche wrote about who women dress for - themselves, other women or men? In this case I hope every weather-beaten pedestrian with a keen eye for pattern was cheered up a little.


See the happy guy? He absolutely has a spring in his step. :)


I don't know what's going on here with the movement, but I like it.


Dress: Second hand, Leggings: Chinese shop, Sandals: Tamaris (worn before here and here), Umbrella: Ikea, Belt: H&M (I turned it around, to show the simpler side), Big ring: Small boutique, Roses: Jojó Art Shop

Love it! The dress is so cute and the belt is gorgeous! It rained a bunch here too yesterday... isn't it supposed to be summer?

Madeline Quaint said...

Psst, it's my same old black belt, just turned the buckle to the back and added some roses. :)

Looks like we have a summer shipped over from India, hot, very humid, and very stormy!

Kirstin said...

Wow, this look is amazing! I love the addition of the belt and the roses are perfect colours! These pictures are great too, love the pretty umbrella!

Oh, those shoes kill me everytime. I need to find a similar pair.

And I love your polka dot umbrella - mine is similar and it keeps me happy no matter how hard it's raining!

Titine Totoche said...

HI!! Oooh yaaay I got a mention wuut wuut!! Hahaha and I hope your outfit did make people happy ;). I really like the dress, the fit is fantastic! And I like how you personalized the belt!

Saludos!!! :)

This whole outfit is awesome, especially the snaps of green! I love the last picture so very much.

Sarah said...

Shoes? Gorgeous.
Dress? Smashing.
Belt: Darling!
Basically, I like this lots. Also, I didn't realize Ikea had umbrellas? Turns out you learn something new every day.

Lyddiegal said...

outfit photos in the rain are never much fun - but you are looking quite pretty here!
I think the dress is adorable and those shoes!!! So in love.

Madeline Quaint said...

Ooh, thank you! I'm training for your Self-Portrait Sundays. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Happy umbrellas are the best! Just think how much better the city would look in rainy weather if everyone had a fun pair. :)

Modcloth had a very similar pair that went on sale months after I bought mine in Tamaris. (It's not available anymore, just checked.) I really wonder how this works as that definitely wasn't Tamaris, was a little lower and a little darker... But otherwise the same.

Madeline Quaint said...

You absolutely deserve a mention, Darling! :)

(Especially as I'm so terrible at acceptance posts... Sorry! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you for noticing the last picture, Jess! I love it too, though it came out fuzzy. I was so happy it still works in black and white. :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Guess what, they even sell it cheaper when it's raining outside. What a brill marketing idea!

Madeline Quaint said...

Yeah, I was glad it stopped raining while there was still light out! :)

love the mix! x hivenn

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks, Jazzy! :)

I know exactly which shoes from Modcloth you're talking about. I think they
were Kensie or Kensie Girl and I think Jessica from What I Wore has those
one's. I saw them and should have gotten them - I love yours every time you
wear them.

Titine Totoche said...

They do??? Oooh man genius!!

Titine Totoche said...

Hahaha no problem ;)

Madeline Quaint said...

Now that we're talking about it - I just saw them in Tick Tock Vintage Veronika's most recent post. :)

The Cat Hag said...

This is such an awesome outfit, your little details are so wonderful!

Those fabulous shoes go so well with the belt, and the dress is so charming! ;)

Ah, those sandals, I have such a crush on them :')

Madeline Quaint said...

Hehe, I should start a fan club for these sandals. :D

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, Addie! :)

Shiny Thoughts said...

Adore your shoes - quite an unusual colour for shoes but love them and their chunkyness! xxx

Ruby Girl said...

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you, Lindsey! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

It's fun, innit? I've never met a "twin" of any measures in real life. :)

Yeah, the green shoes were a love affair - I saw them in the shop, on their slideshow, and kept looking in asking when they arrived. Haha, the ladies must have been bored with me. :D
