I didn’t make full use of this outfit

Because I didn’t go frolicking in any fields with flowers in my hair today.

And a long flowy dress like this begs to be frolicked in. Especially when paired with a vest and a long beaded necklace.

I bought it in Turkey from a man named Erol who fell in love with my sister-in-law.

“Hiiiiii Jaclyn!” he would yell from across the street as she came out of our hotel. Morning. Noon. And night.

When I bought the dress, Erol gave me the Jaclyn discount. Because it’s not what you know, it’s who.

    Mild solicitation for a sizzling price- what’s so bad about that?

    p.s. Love it with the vest. I wore my black Erol with my denim studded(bedazzled) vest from London the other day!

    Love the dress and the vest! A great combo and despite the frolicking vibe, it doesn’t scream Woodstock (something that occasionally bugs me about maxi dresses). It’s a great balance between elegant and casual. Oh, and I’m sure your sis-in-law must have loved having an admirer ;)
