OOTD :: of history in the making




I bought this dress when it first came on the market in 2008. I have since sold mine, regretted it, bought another, realized I needed a different size, resold the smaller and now own a bigger, all in the span of 5 years.

It must be a keeper.

I know it looks like a sack and it doesn’t photograph well (or perhaps I just have poor photography skills), but I absolutely adore the cunning details like the polka dot trim/flounce and the bell sleeves. I even love the muted color palette. Sure, it may be a bit short and I have to watch how I sit, but a dress with this much purchase history has got staying power, I tell ya.

And it’s perfect for when I want to indulge my boho chic/Woodstock gal.

P.S. Bonus point for anyone who can identify the artist of the song in my subject line. Without using Google.

    I think this dress photographs perfectly well…and in person, it looks great, too.

    There’s something rather calm about the color scheme – light and summery, but with browns that hint at autumn. With the light fabric and long sleeves, it’s the perfect transitional dress for this time of year (except it’s not feeling like fall just yet). Very pretty, and it looks great on you!

    I don’t know the artist, but I’m going to look it up now and keep it to myself.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
