Marcie: Femme Fatale

By Marcie Everhart

“Some days I feel like playing it smooth. Some days I feel like playing it like a waffle iron.” — Raymond Chandler, master of noir, in the hard-boiled detective Philip Marlowe story “Trouble Is My Business”

Playing It Smooth


This black dress with a cut-out v-neck is a bit of a waffle iron itself with its eye-catching, intriguing neckline. (It’s from Covered Perfectly, so the dress is constructed from their smooth, high-quality MicroModal Ponte de Roma fabric with the flattering drape.) The dress design is a perfect game of conceal-reveal, concealing what I want to remain a mysterious question and revealing a glimpse of one of the sexier, feminine parts of a woman. Duh-nuh — the collarbone!

The black brings out the best in the textured straw accessories so hot right now.

Playing It Like A Waffle Iron

The key to keeping everyone on their toes is to do the unexpected.

I have a new pair of Nikes (and agate earrings), black and sleek, and I want to wear them with everything, even dresses. I would totally wear this comfortable dress and sneaks on vacation to sight-see or blast through an airport. The only thing I’d want to shop for is a sleek black leather backpack — hands-free for me.

Playing It Your Way

Obviously thisĀ dress is a lot of fun and flexible enough to allow you to assume the identity of a hundred different women. You can play any part you like with this perfect dress as the key!

Modeling is so much harder than it looks! Hairrr — wind — need to show the neckline well! Lol.
