Metal Feathers

Though the sharp edges on this dress could prove dangerous when I'm bleary-eyed at 5:00AM, trying to yank it over my head. . . I'll roll the dice :) I adore the weight and mix of textures. OH! and the second I find a lightweight, fitted pale yellow sweater to layer underneath this lovely. . .it's on!

Date Night. . .

. . .well this was what I had in mind for dinner last night, but the week was so brutal that I couldn't muster the energy to flip the party switch. Fortunately, the pretty dresses and leopard heels will wait.

While on my last 'signal' during lunch-hour yesterday, I did a quick thrift run and scored an adorable 'Built By Wendy' yellow sheath dress with embroidered anchors AND an equally adorable, deer-print, v-neck Primp tee. Can't wait to test run that Wendy dress with a grey cardigan-- am sort of obsessed with that color-scheme right now.

Out of the Bag

This is the dress from the previous post and while I'm excited to finally get to wear it, I've found that it's a tricky little number. . . At any given angle, it either looks like I got a boob job or a butt lift-- and neither in a good way :( Oh well, it's comfortable and the length is work appropriate. I'll throw on a cropped leather jacket and see what gives.

P.S. Don't mind the shoes. I didn't intend to pair them with this dress, but I was traipsing around my house, intoxicated by the height of the heal and couldn't bear to take them off-- You understand :)

Slight Alteration

So here's the thing, I haven't had many opportunities to take pictures lately so I asked a friend to grab the camera as I ran out to pick-up my dry-cleaning. We only had a few minutes so there wasn't much time to zoom, position myself in the best lighting etc. Long story short, they're not good and I wouldn't have shared this photo if it wasn't for the man in the top right hand corner-What in the world????????? *Note to self: Find a new Dry Cleaner*

HUGE Saturday morning haul at the American Cancer Society Discovery Store! Do you have one in your neighborhood? Google it; there are amazing finds every now and then. This weekend, they hosted a designer sale with racks upon racks of BCBG pieces- Nothing over $10!!! I arrived a day late but still managed to score a few lovely additions to my ever-growing wardrobe. This one is 100% silk!! Excuse the wrinkles, I'm not going out, just slipped it on to share. I love the effortless quality of this look, the fabric, the feminine cut, the sash, the straps-- my kind of dress!
