Visible Monday: Trollied Dolly

Today marks my first installation of “Visible Monday.” This blog-collaboration, started by Not Dead Yet Style began in opposition to the idea that as women grow older at some age they become “invisible.” Being in law school makes me feel so small and invisble. Well, that is until I get cold called, and wonder if my forehead looks as large as it feels, all while I’m supposed to be recalling the finer points of a case… VM also serves the dual purpose of letting you see the person behind the blog, rather than always hearing what I have to say (although I am unapologetically fond of the poorly lighted selfie). Being the egomaniac I am, I decided to join!

The only guideline is to “compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.” Ladies and Gentleman, I’d like to introduce you to my Trollied Dolly dress.

IMG_6054Isn’t it a beaut? Every time I wear this dress I just feel so fun and fancy free. It’s 100% cotton, so when I walk around, I just feel clean like a crisp day in the mid-50s. Below is my dress on the wall, and featured in Look magazine!

So what is a Trollied Dolly, you ask (a bit belated)?

Well, I think they say it best:

I have yet to find a label on the market that manages to channel retro like these girls. With a splash of rouge and a cinched waist, they’ll have you looking like you swooned out of a 40’s movie in no time. And now’s your moment, Happy Visible Monday!
