Adrien: Prints and Stripes.

Oh hey, It's National Cat Day which makes me happy and I guess makes Daniel happy though I'm pretty sure he thinks every day is NCD. Today is uncommonly warm so I dressed for the weather:

I'm annoyed that my bad photography makes all the purple look black! This dress has purpley-brown bits that go nicely with my new aubergine Lotta t-bars, which Daniel is hiding. My dress is an old one from Ann Taylor and it's one of my favorites. It's long sold out, but it's not too hard to find a cool leopard sheath dress. This Calvin Klein dress is really subtle and this cute thing would be my budget pick. I file this gorgeous number under, "Only In My Dreams." Sigh.

I'm telling you, dark purple is such a great neutral! If the Lotta clogs aren't your speed, check out this bootie, this sweet pointy-toed pump or these cool slip-ons and tell me I'm wrong. My cardigan is Philosophy but this one is basically the same unexciting thing.

Details! I'm wearing my Banana Republic scarab pendant (this one at L&T is pretty similar) and my Cluse watch which seems to go with everything. My MBMJ Mag Bag has been getting lots of love - something about pewter metallic just works with everything. This dirt-cheap Liz Claiborne satchel nails the color but I'd spend a little more and get this ridiculously cute Emma Fox tote. Or, splurge and get this DVF satchel because dang

Time for head scritches! He's such a good boy:


  1. Adrien- I'm heading to Richmond for the first time in November (somehow living 2 hours away my whole life I have never done more than drive by on my way to NC). Have you done a post of your favorite Richmond shops before? My friend and I are planning to eat and shop and we'd love some tips!
