Dress Vestido: c/o Hope Alethia
Jacket Casaco: H&M
Tights Collants: Primark
Necklace Colar: Ebay
Headband Bandelete: Claire's


I gotta confess I love comfy twirling dresses. Usually, I'm not into bodycon or tight dresses but when I saw this dress from Hope Alethia I knew I could definitely welcome it into my wardrobe. Look, I still haven't changed my opinion about too tight dresses but I really like how this dress can perfectly go into a more professional or casual outfit (despite being a bodycon dress) unlike those tight dresses I see out there that are just made to be sexy or whatever. I don't even know. I have always been very pudic and I don't like showing too much of my body. No, I don't feel forced to wear ankle dresses or skirts and full-length shirts all the time but I have my own standards and I think you'll never see me wearing clothing that goes under a certain length.
Back to this dress, I love how fancy it easily looks but I didn't want to go for a very office look so I decided to make it a bit fun. I am aware some people would wear it very differently but for this day I decided to pair it with my heart tights and my Marilyn bag for extra fun (hence the 'I heart Marilyn' title, got it?). Anyway, who doesn't love Marilyn Monroe? I always wish I was as pretty and classy as she was... I think she has lived in such a golden age, both the 50's and the 60's were part of an era I wish I had belonged to! 
Tenho que confessar que adoro vestidos confortáveis, para rodopiar. Normalmente, não gosto muito de vestidos apertados ou justos ao corpo mas quando vi este vestido da Hope Alethia soube definitivamente que podia dar-lhe as boas-vindas ao meu armário. Vejam, eu não mudei a minha opinião sobre vestidos demasiado justos mas gosto muito de como este vestido pode facilmente ser usado num outfit mais profissional ou casual (apesar de ser justo ao corpo), ao contrário de vestidos justos que vejo por aqui que são feitos apenas para serem sexy ou sei lá o quê. Nem sei. Sempre fui muito púdica e não gosto de mostrar demasiado do meu corpo. Não, não me sinto obrigada a usar vestidos ou saias até ao tornozelo ou camisolas de manga comprida mas tenho os meus próprios padrões e penso que nunca me verão a usar roupa que fique acima de um certo comprimento.
De volta a este vestido, adoro como facilmente fica giro mas não queria ir para um look demasiado profissional por isso decidi dar-lhe um bocado de diversão. Sei que muitas pessoas iriam usá-lo de uma forma diferente mas neste dia decidi conjugá-lo com os meus collants de corações e a minha mala da Marilyn para uma maior diversão (daí o título 'I heart Marilyn', perceberam?). De qualquer forma, quem não gosta da Marilyn Monroe? Sempre desejei ser tão bonita e com classe como ela... acho que ela viveu numa era de ouro, tanto os anos 50 como os anos 60 fizeram parte de uma era a que eu desejava ter pertencido!

Do you guys have certain types of clothing you think you'll never wear? What era would you like to have lived in?
Vocês têm algum tipo de roupa que acham que nunca irão usar? Em que era desejavam ter vivido?

As usual, don't forget to 'hype' this outfit on Lookbook and vote for it on Chictopia!
Como já é hábito, não se esqueçam de carregar 'hype' no Lookboot e de votar neste outfit no Chictopia!
