Well, the outfit isn’t terrible … just the blurry photo is. It was too windy and cold out for a redo; I ran inside right after this. Whatever! If you want excellent jewelry, you’re on the right blog. If you want excellent outfit photography, go practically anywhere else. I have to pick my battles, and the camera has officially kicked my ass and won the war.
Despite technical challenges, I did want to get a picture of the Zang Toi dress and sweater combo I wore last night, because I haven’t worn them for a few years.
What Wendy Wore
Sweater: Zang Toi (2009)
Dress: Zang Toi (2009)
Bag: Prada (I think the bag is from 2005; I bought it last year on consignment.)
Shoes: Prada (2010)
Rings: All my own designs
Here I am wearing the same thing while hanging out with gorgeous bloggers in San Francisco in 2009.
I wore the dress by itself to Zang Toi’s runway show later that year.
I don’t know whether I’ve worn these pieces since then. If I did, no photos were taken. Long breaks don’t bother me though. I plan to keep Zang’s pieces forever, so I know I’ll have a chance to wear them again.
UPDATED TO ADD: Just remembered that I have a picture of this look from Zang’s runway in 2008. Click here to see.

You know I love strapless over other tops, but the pattern mixing is to die for! Love love love.
I don’t think the picture is that bad, Wendy! Don’t be so hard on yourself.
I think my face is out of focus and something else … ? A photographer would have the right jargon for it. Very strange. I’m looking at the camera now and it is and was on autofocus.

I love it on you…you definitely suit red. Very eye-catching!
Love the pattern mixing my dear!
I love the juxtaposition of the plaid with the stripes, and the strapless dress over a top too.

Your pattern mixing in the same color palette is amazing!!
Susan Tiner says
You look totally adorable no matter what you’re wearing or how the photo comes out.
And it just goes to show I really do need glasses because I glanced at the picture on the camera and thought it was fine. Only when I put it on the computer did I see how messed up it was!

I love this combination. I actually thought the dress was made that way at first. I think you look adorably disheveled. Work with what ya got (unfortunately that means the weather).
this is one of my favorite zang pieces!
I really love how you layered it! I have plans to do something similar soon, but can’t figure out when to wear it…you are my outfit inspiration!
also recognizing Annie in that photo! 🙂
All credit goes to Zang Toi — he put it together!
Wow. I really like this. And until you showed the strapless dress in the last picture, I couldn’t figure out how it was two pieces! wow … they look amazing together — just the way that pattern mixing should look in my book.
Wendy i love that dress! It looks fab both with the top and without. I actually love the contrast of it against the stripes.

Tartan + stripes = glamorous + fun.
Hi my dear-adore the dress and what a lovely picture of you and Zang! xx
