Was so happy to blog today (we are on a roll!) because I get to model my new (and oh so wonderful) dress, which was a birthday present from my lovely mom! I never go shopping in stores (online always!), but my mom was in town last weekend for my birthday and we spent 85% of the weekend shopping because that is how we do. Anyway, it was fun to browse the racks and see what's trending... much different than the online experience indeed. I noticed a strong theme of seventies-era clothes, with lots of high waisted jeans, moody florals, and brown/mustard/orange shades. Anyway, this dress feels very 70s to me for some reason but I can't pinpoint why. And though I was a bit concerned that it was too short for work, I felt awesome in it (just couldn't lift my arms).
I'll be honest, this vest-dress was an impulse buy a few weeks back after I had a drink. I was walking around the Century City mall after a tipple and wandered into a Banana Republic. Big mistake. Huge. Or maybe the best decision I've made for the fall season?
Still figuring out ways to wear it, but today I wore it like a summer suit jacket for a deposition. Going to convert it into a dress for the après le travail look.
Oh, and the happy grin was per Paloma's request.
