Over the weekend I pulled out some of my fall/winter clothes and was happy to have this dress back in the mix again. It's slightly too short but I love the heavy weight fabric and I love that it doesn't require Spanx of any variety. Always a plus! And y'all know how I am about the stripes:
A good fit-and-flare striped dress is worth having. Mine is from Banana Republic and, while they have some fit-and-flare dresses this fall, there isn't a strip in the bunch. Boden always has a cute striped dress and I also like this more casual take by Cosabella. This darker stripe dress by LOFT is appealing and, oooooh this Kate Spade dress is an investment but it's basically perfect (and there's a short-sleeve version marked down on 6pm!)
As a final (slightly related) note on my unending stripe-love, can I tell you how much I want this ombre breton top from Boden? And how annoyed I am that it's backordered? Ugh. ANYWAY. My blue MBMJ bag brings in a little color and my ankle boots are finally getting to see the light of day. Please hold for my accidental power pose:
There it is, right? Something about these boots just begs for it. Here are the details:
I'm wearing a couple of my Giles and Brother bracelets, the skinny railroad cuff and the skinny cortina. I'm also wearing a BR chain pendant that I bought last winter. There's not much like it but this BCBGeneration necklace has a similar feel or you could go for some amazing Lulu Frost craziness at TheRealReal! (Seriously, someone buy that.)
My MBMJ Globetrotter Kirsten is such a cheerful bag and definitely one of my favorites. Occasionally one pops up on eBay but in the meantime this cobalt blue MJ tote on 6pm is pretty great, right? I also like this sleek navy Vince Camuto hobo. And, there's still my favorite under-$30 bargain pick!
Finally, the ankle boots. These are Vince Camuto "Hadley" boots from a few years back and they're pretty much a direct knockoff of the Rag & Bone Newbury. This more updated version by Vince Camuto looks pretty similar and so does this style. Booties for everyone!
