WIW - I lived through the 80's

You've seen this dress all summer long. Now that my crazy meetings are over, I can wear it with flats, hurray! I also tried to make it more fall-like by adding the shrug, but it got too hot and I had to take it off mid-day. Outfit features my shoulder-grazing gold hoops from my 16th birthday. Take a guess what year... quick hint, Salt n' Pepper had their biggest year ever and were sporting them in their videos! Now that's one old golden oldie!

    Nicely styled, I really like the flats here! A bright jacket/cardigan would also look fun with this dress. LOVE those sassy hoops :D

    I really love this look, gold hoops and all!

    You're obviously not old enough to have been 16 circa 1988 so I guess you don't mean the "Push It" year but rather the "Shoop/Whatta Man" year? What was that, like 1994?

    I like your outfit too - you look good in flats (good in heels too but I haven't seen you in flats before!)

    Fruitful, Your first guess was right :)

    Well I'll have some of what you're having then! :)

    love this with the flats, and I love the gold hoops. I have a similar pair and sometimes they are just the right accessory.

    Love it. Your hair and the earrings in Photo #1 are beautiful. I wish I had your skin!

    Great outfit! I really enjoy when you can switch up a look with shoes. And I like Aida's bright color idea too. Nice hoop earrings!

    LOOOOOOOVE that dress. The hoops are great, too! They make me want to shoop.
