Cap sleeves usually make me think of temple-ready gowns…specifically those temple-ready gowns that look like someone took a strapless dress, yanked it upward, and popped some sleeves on as an afterthought. Not all of them look like that, but some certainly do. Why you’d try to convert immodest into modest when there are so many fabu things you can do with modest is beyond me.
Of course, this Kittychen gown is sure as Schenectady not temple-ready–too much booby and not enough sleeve. Also, it’s not all white. Is it super freakin’ awesome? Yes. I think I’d buy something similar in black or brown or blue, and then make The Beard take me dancing. In this one instance, I’m giving cap sleeves the thumbs up…they look so dang fab with the empire waist.
I don’t know why I’ve been on such an LDS kick all morning–not to be confused with an LSD kick–but it could have something to do with dress shopping. It’s 30 degrees outside and stores are still full of teeny tiny mini dresses with short sleeves! Huh?! I can sometimes find really cute non-formal dresses that won’t leave me freezing my assets off in stores that have opted to make modesty a priority, i.e. stores that market their clothes to religious folks.
Anyhoo, enough of my rambling. I love this dress. Do you?
