outfit of the day: 10.29.2011

hello! on friday night, the lovely S and i hit the town, had a girly sleepover, and then went for cinnamon rolls in the morning. best time ever? you bet. 

 here's what i wore:

yep. it's tight season again. i went sans jacket, but so glad i had my legwear. that and my new favorite drink of gin, grenadine, and lemonade. it's pink and tasty.


i bought this dress because of the adorable print. you know i love a good whimsical animal ;)

i am also having an arm party moment. love the new crystal brûlée bracelets from j.crew i picked up during the 25% off. 

dress - peppermint. similar available in her etsy shop here
shoes - anthropologie
jewelry - j.crew, michael kors, vintage, aerie

apparel find: vintage inspired target coat

i was browsing at target and had to share this fabulous find. the merona faux-fur collar coat was amazing. i am wearing the small. runs true to size for merona (that brand has a more generous cut).



though i love a good faux-fur collar, it is completely detachable. the coat has a definite vintage feeling. at $70, it feels like a steal. i wasn't 100% loving the buttons, but it would be an easy switcheroo.

happy hunting!

you know you had a good meal when you take a picture of it... and then you can still recall how tasty it was a month later. a turkey cheeseburger and cup of french onion soup. delicious.

anthropologie fluted ponte dress fitting review

hello! i tried on the fluted ponte dress by girls from savoy at anthropologie and had to share a review. it is really lovely. i am wearing the small. it ran bigger than i would have guessed.


the only issue i had was the color. i hoping it comes out in another colorway. maybe navy with pale pink ribbon or black and ivory ribbon. that mustard yellow is about the worst thing that could happen to my fair skin.

anthropologie lepidoptera dress fitting review and styling option

oh goodness. i think i am loosing my mind. i thought i had posted this months ago, but of course, i didn't. here you go! the lepidoptera dress (say that one 3 times fast) by maeve. i am wearing a size 6. fits true to size.


ignore my bra-straps. the dress did come with detachable straps, i just didn't have the patience to put them in. below you can see the detailed lining.  as most reviewers stated, in store the bow looked a little sad. it needs a good steaming, but could have also used some additional weight and a little length too. i will probably always substitute a belt.

here's an option for how i would wear it:

anthropologie lepidoptera dress, option #1

another outfit from the archives...


i am looking forward to wearing this dress into the fall... removing the blue sash and adding a brown belt helps it transition.
