If you are wondering why this post has this title, it is because of two reasons:

  1. I wasn’t sure about the name of the color of this dress, and smoked salmon was the first thing that came to my mind, and,
  2. I think the cut and the color of this dress is perfect for a sunday brunch, and a lot of brunches that I have attended have usually consisted of smoked salmon.



I have always been drawn to fleshy colors, but never skin color. Flesh colors in various hues, like pink, peach, purple, etc, look amazing as they give a subtle charm to an outfit. However, if you go for a shade that is very close to or is exactly like your skin color, the result is mostly disastrous (unless you are intentionally aiming for a certain look).



The cut and the flow of this dress makes it a very laid back, ‘weekend’ dress. It is loose and fitted at the right places, thus, not shabby.



Such dresses are especially good for brunch buffets because, lets face it, we end up over eating and achieve a temporary tummy in the process. So, it is better to dress accordingly, and avoid body-con outfits, instead of uncomfortably sucking your tummy in till you reach the safety of your vehicle.



So I paired this light flowy part sheer dress with some turquoise, peach and gold earrings and silver rainbow heels. I kept the look light, fleshy (no pun intended) and metallic, appropriate for a day out!
