Mod In Missoni

Tunic: Missoni for Target

This “tunic” is actually a dress, and while I’m not one to shy away from dresses on the shorter side, this one is just way too short, even for me. I tried opaque black tights at first, but it was indecent – any slight move and my ass was out. The easiest solution that came to mind was leggings and boots, and I adore the mod vibe they brought to the tunic. I took advantage of the crisp weather and wore a new jacket that has been begging to be let out of my closet. Bundled up in a coat with boots, it really felt like fall…and I absolutely loved it!

It looks great with the leggings and boots. I've lost count of all the "dresses" I own that I can actually only wear with leggings due to the ever present risk of ass exposure.

i love the shape of that dress! i too would wear it more as a tunic, or not- i tend to be completely inappropriate at times. i would try it with colorful tights and a hidden pair of plain shorts (my favorite are from american apparel, i wore them for my halloween costume).

You look great in that dress.  And I refuse to call anything that I have worn bare-legged anything BUT a dress, even if I am a couple inches shorter than you :)

Geeee Santina, did you score big time on Missoni pieces or what?!
This dress/tunic is gorgeous and I noticed your shoes on another post.
I really like the way you pull the outfits together.

Oh I loooove that dress, doesn't look too short at all with the leggings!

Angie said...

yeah you did!  Lady, you are rockin that Missoni like only you could.  I adore this on you.  I love the edge that the boots and tights give this and that jacket is to die for.  It also looks perfect for smuggling booze in.  Just sayin.

xo.

Yeah, I'm not down with exposing the ass. It's bad enough that some of my dresses are so short that when I sit on the bus, there's no fabric between my ass and the nasty seat! I don't even want to think about it...

Santina said...

So would you wear it so that the shorts show or just in case? This idea kinda reminds me of ruffly underwear that little girls wear. You know what I mean? Please say yes or I'll feel like a total chimo (child molester)!

Santina said...

Thanks, Amy!

Santina said...

Ha ha! Let us not forget that you even warned me that this might not be a dress on me!

This is one of my favourite looks - tunic, tights, and boots. I find this to be way more comfortable to wear than pants. Your short hair really compliments this look too.
This jacket is lovely too and very autumn-y, which is another word for COZY :)

I totally scored with the Missoni for Target collection, especially considering that I didn't even go! My best friend shopped for me!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Thanks, Ashley!

Santina said...

And it will forever be known as my smuggler jacket! Love that!

Actually this jacket would be GORGEOUS on you - I might force you to borrow it!

Santina said...

You do boots and leggings better than anyone I know! And yes, fall is synonymous with cozy to me too!
