Set against the brick exterior of my sister’s house, I am wearing her dress in autumnal colors of similar shades of brick, warmed by tones of green and amber.
I am also wearing her fabulous textured boots. How prescient these purchases were. She bought both items in 2010, and both styles are so on trend today. Thanks, Twin! Here is a shot of the boots indoors.
The bell sleeve dress is fun and somewhat dramatic. Watch what happens when you hail a cab or point to a destination. Cool! Not so cool when eating though,- there are better ways to be saucy.
But I am inside now and no food products are in the offing.

Bell sleeved dress and boots bought in NY Boutiques in 2010. Amber ring is from Mexico, and the Edwardian emerald paste ring was purchased at the Peacock Throne, but is one of a kind. BUT here are some shopping ideas, never fear!
From shopstyle.com are 3 of their best selling dresses with bell sleeves:
From Eragem.com is a selection of cocktail rings I love. Wishlist, anyone? Prices and detail in link.
Also from Shopstyle.com is a selection of tweed and patterned boots, My top five:
So ladies, what do you think? A fan of the bell sleeved dress, yes or no? Please tell me in the comment section. I am also curious, with the holidays on the way… What is on your wishlist?
I think this looks great on you and pulled it off so well and those boots are so fun! I think the eating part would drive me nuts and keep me from buying anything bell sleeve.
Hope to see your Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
It is a thing to consider. for sure. But so far so good! See you thursday!xx, Elle

Really interesting and attractive outfit. Bell sleeves make my heart leap.
I love the shape of them, too, minus the arrhythmia , a bit of drama, best in lace, I think..Thanks for commenting.xx, elle
