Gladiator

Dress: American Apparel. Gladiator sandals: River Island. Bag Alexander Wang.

This dress is great in hot and sticky weather. I bought it in New York last summer where it is hot and sticky beyond belief during the summer months. The low cut arm holes mean you get a lot of much needed ventilation. I love the slouchy silhouette and drapey material. It's the perfect vacation dress- you can roll it up in a bag and it will never crease.

I loooooooooved being in Mallorca! My only complaint is that it was over too soon. I could have easily spent the entire summer on the island just reading and eating chorizo but we had to return. I start shooting a film tomorrow. It's such a cool project. One of the writers was my cast mate in my first ever acting job. He's also acting in this film and it will be awesome to be working together again all these years later. 

I always get really excited about the first day on new film.... it feels like the first day of school. I even pack my bag the night before ;)

The dress really is the perfect thing for hot summer days/nights. Is it the house line at AA? I feel like I have never seen anything like it there. She's a beauty!
Love, P
P.S. Since you're headed to set, does that mean you'll take a break from posting? I hope not - your blog is fab!

Ring My Bell said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments guys!

365 Fashion Rehab -As far as I know the dress is just part of the regular AA line. The label looks just like their usual stuff... but I got it last year so maybe they don't stock it anymore???

And I still plan to post while I'm filming... maybe not as often but I will try!

Love this outfit Ashley :) Looks so cool and comfy and cute! I just got some new sandals from River Island, I had been eyeing them for a while and they went in the sale, they are the grey ones with dangling spikes, I adore them! I love your sandals!
What is the film? Can you say? :D

The Beautiful Soup said...

oooooh loving your dress. i think i need it for my holiday to bali...

i found it on the AA site. Do you have in black or tri-black (black marle) it's hard to tell in your pics.

hmnnnn i can't decide which to get

Ring My Bell said...

RaindropsofSapphire - It's called 'Victim' and it's a drama :)

The Beautiful Soup - hmmmmmm, I think mine is tri black. It is kind of a really dark grey.

Michelle McNeill- Thanks you! These pictures were taken on a Leica D-LUX and then edited using iPhoto.
