Shift dress as skirt

Τhe second day of Easter is a national off work day that famillies spend together trying to eat what's left from the lamb of the previous day and enjoying each other's company or not.

I chose to wear my black shift dress partly because I want to conceal my easter belly and partly because I think to make shift dresses my signature style piece. I can make one, I've seen some while thrifting and certainly the shops have some every season because they are classic. But mostly I think they flatter my midde age figure the most.
Outfit details? shift dress Marks & Spencer * stripes top zara* blouse hand sewn and thrifted * boots palatino *bag fullah sugah *blacksocs my husband's* favorite watch follie follie

Of course it looks like a black skirt but you know it's my shift dress. Once again the power of layering. 
What do you think is it a good idea to start a coection of shift dresses? Do you collect something else of clothing?

  1. Love the print on that top - I brought down some of my dresses from storage as I want to have a go at layering, thanks for the inspiration and tips.

  2. Great layering of the pretty blouse over the black dress, Angie! Come share with Visible Monday if you have a chance. xo

  3. You layer beautifully! I adore the floral top with the hint of stripes and your dress with the boots! all good! I tend to buy dresses, which saves me time as I get a little confused trying to match separates! x x x

  4. Great Job! beautiful combination of blouse, black dress and bag. I love it!
