The Inga-Regina swing dress didn’t make my final cut when I was planning my purchases from the Miss Candyfloss “Smile with Lucy” collection. But then they offered an end-of-season voucher, and when I was browsing their website, I discovered that there was exactly one Inga-Regina left in stock, and it just happened to be in my size…what are you going to do? So that’s how I ended up with one more piece from the collection than I was planning on, and I’m happy I did!
The style of this dress is pretty different from what I usually wear. It has bishop sleeves (which aren’t totally obvious, because the cuffs are surprisingly loose, which is not a problem I usually have). It also has a cutout detail at the neck, with a sweet little bow as an adornment.
I was surprised to discover that the accent color of the dress is actually orange, and not burgundy like I had assumed. So I added an orange Splendette duchess bangle to my accessories, along with sliver hoops à la Lucy Ricardo, an Erstwilder brooch, and a delicate necklace (I didn’t want to compete with the beautiful neckline!).
I also wore a ring over my gloves:
I love the plaid of the dress, and the pops of bright blue from the cuffs and belt!
It was fun to add an unexpected piece to my wardrobe…now it’s time to wait for them to reveal their spring/summer collection!
