Newly Purchased

I found this dress and thought that it was a dress that I've seen before. Then I thought about how it reminded me a lot of the Gucci fall 08 runway and how boho luxe it is. I loved the babydoll silhouette, the Autumn color palette on the floral print and the tight 3/4 sleeves. Immediately I thought about pairing this with my faux fur vest and ankle boots.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a pair of wedge pumps at H&M and I adored them but the more I tried them on with things the more I got discouraged. I kept thinking that here was nothing special about them and they were just a good pair of shoes to have. but then I saw this pair about a week later and I knew that the other pair needed to get exchanged. I already have a pair of platform oxfords but those I thought were definitely not appropriate for work. I wouldn't last 10 minutes on the train let alone all day in them. That's where these come in. These are adorable and appropriate and definitely more interesting than the other pair I got.

When I saw this dress I immediately thought that it looked familiar. I loved the sailor style of it. The length was very much flattering and it's possibly the only dress I could ever fathom wearing my hair tied back with. So I looked back in my Runway folders to see whereI recognized this dress from and I found it....

Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 08. The production of this dress along with various others that are a lot more similar to the dress on the runway is a bit late but still so very appropriate for Fall. I love the sailor collar and the button detailing.
