i heart dresses

I usually hate ordering clothes online and would much prefer trying clothes on in person, but unfortunately this jcrew dress was online only... so I took the plunge and ordered.

I got lucky and loved the dress in real life! It has a halter style top with a deep v in the back and little shimmery threads throughout. I covered up with a cardigan for work, but will probably wear the dress alone on weekends. I paired it with a light purple cardigan, but there are so many different colors in the dress that lots of cardigans would go well (olive green, amber, dark brown).

Here is a detailed pic of the print:

Sorry these pics are so blurry... must get tripod...

  4. hi anonymous, i am wearing the Linea Paolo 'Gianna' Pump. i am OBSESSED with nude pumps because they make your legs look longer and they go with everything! here is a link to them on nordstrom, but it doesn't look like they are available anymore...


    i have also been eyeing these ann taylor nude pumps. looks like there are limited sizes, but maybe you could call customer service and see if they can locate them for you.


    these might also be another cute option:


    or these:


    hope this helps! :)

  5. I just started reading your blogs.....love your style. I wanted that dress so bad but was sold out. I'm still drooling over them.

  6. Hi Annie! Thanks and I'm happy to have you as a reader! Yeah, I got lucky and bought the dress as soon as it showed up online... if you're still really wanting it maybe keep checking ebay to see if it pops up eventually.
