|Here is what I came in wearing.|
Calliope Dress, Anthro
Chuck Taylors, DSW
|Well at least ya know I wear panties!|
Pinstripe Blouson Chemise by Puella. Size Small.
I was hoping to get this to wear as a swim cover as well as an easy summer dress, but it was just too thin for that. Cute, but not a must-have for me.
Novella Strapless Dress by Girls From Savoy. Size 4.
GFS makes the absolute cutest dresses ever, but I need another strapless dress like a hole in the head. It's cute, but I rarely do the flared skirt dresses. The fit is right on, in my normal size for them. Side note: As you can see, this looks completely different on me than it does in the model shot. Hopefully this gives you a more realistic view of what it would look like on the average girl.
Back to the rack.
Cap Sleeve Column Dress by Bailey 44. Size Medium, Pink Motif.
I literally stand there in the dressing room trying these Bailey 44 dresses on, and saying, "Oh, crap." I just KNOW I'm in for it. Because these dresses are MAGICAL! My only dilemma was which color to take to checkout. I am such a sucker.
This dress has cap sleeves, hence the name, and is a longer length than my Striped Column version. I love having the color and length versatility, but both are equally useful in my wardrobe. I feel like a million bucks in it.
Changing Stripes Dress by Maeve. Size 4.
Darn you Anthro with your useless strapless dresses!
I don't know why I always fall for trying these on, but at least I have the good sense to not bring them home with me. This was adorable. If I remember correctly, it was linen, and well made. I remember feeling like it felt good on. This is now on sale, so give it a shot, if you see one in the sale room.
Can't find the name of this top, but it's Vanessa Virginia, size 6, and $68.
I like this ok, but not no. 1 on my list because of the waist and the gap in the back. It's cute, but I fell hard for the Bailly 44 dresses.
This was a must-have. I had been eyeing this on the web site, since it's debut. I purchased at full price, against my better judgement, even mentioning to the sales girl that as soon as I bought it, it would finally go to sale. Sure enough, it hit 2 days after my P.A. window. Rats. But I'm still glad I got it. I have already worn and washed it, and it feels great!
Scalloped Stripes Dress by Bordeaux. Size Small.
Bordeaux is cranking out the hits for me. I loved this, but I felt lost between the Small and the Medium. Since it was closing time, and I knew the girls were closing up shop, I let it go, but I would like to try this cutie on again.
