Adrien: Sweater Dress Season.

Yep, it's that time again. I bought my Boden Milano dress at the end of spring so I've only really been able to wear it a few times. It's a good one though:

Cozy without being overwhelming or heavy or stretching out all to hell. Boden got this one right. Unfortunately the Milano Dress is now only available in a few colors and sizes but there are some other good options from Boden. The Julietta Dress is the same shape and the Panel Patsy Dress has the same color panel feel but with short sleeves. I also think the Annabel Dress does a nice job of bridging the gap. Same general shape and winter weight with a few interesting patterns. 

If Boden is not in the budget but you still want a color block sweater dress, I strongly suggest checking out this adorable Nine West dress or this Isaac Mizrahi option. This one by Danny & Nicole also has potential and is under $40!  Instead of my usual sad cardigan I'm wearing a little cropped jacket from Banana Republic. It's a million years old but I think this weird little thing would be an interesting update. Maybe? It's crazy but I'm not mad at it.

Same old Cluse watch and my Lulu Frost for J.Crew tassel necklace. Lulu Frost is my kind of lunatic and this tassel necklace appears to be beautiful and life-changing. Sigh. For those of us who need to pay rent, this one will do the trick.

Best boots ever, Loeffler Randall Matilde and best bag ever, a vintage LV Speedy. I know I'm always going on about having a red bag, but you really should have a red bag. Cute Merona option or nice little CH gift for yourself?  Up to you. 


  1. Everytime I see your red speedy, I want one!! Have you tried to polish the hardware on yours? I have a vintage speedy in Toledo blue that looked so good after I polished all of the gold hardware with Brasso.

    1. I knoooow, the lock is really tarnished. I need to buy some Brasso!
