If You Ever Substitute in a Library, Pull Out the Library Print Doll Dress!!!

I would be the worst J. Crew blogger if I had the chance to substitute in a School library and not wear the Library Print Doll Dress. This amazing dress has so many fans...created in Fall 2007 and featured all over the September 2007 Paris Catalog (you know, my FAVE)...this dress is a J. Crew Collection piece, 100% silk (the very special, heavy-weight silk that flows well) with an intricate print showing various scenes from a library.

For those of you new to my site, I have some pictures from the September 2007 Paris catalog up, and the library doll dress on Vanessa is one of the pages I uploaded. Remember, if you want to see them all, click on one of my labels that says either "Vanessa the model," or "Paris catalog" and you should be able to see all my posts on that catalog.


Here is the polyvore for this outfit.


And here it is on me, without the cardigan. I would have loved to have worn it without the cardigan, but I was in a middle school and not a party, so I did the right thing and covered up. BTW, is CW's backside PRECIOUS? Love it!!! :)


And here I am, all conservative and ready for my stint in the library. BTW, only a handful of people "got" the dress. I am very disappointed in today's youth. :) Kidding...

Have a lovely Thursday...

P.S. HeidiG., is this one of those polyvores that you want me to put myself into? For you, anything...maybe when I get a moment, I will.

I am SO jeal jeal! I totally loved this dress when it came out, but I missed it! :::cries::: I have the lobster print dress from around the same time that I think has the same fit. I love that dress so much so I know I would have ADORED the library one! You look smashing!

You look amazing and the dress fits you so well! What a gem and I know you'll treasure for many many years go come.
I wish JC will go back to making better quality and more collection worthy pieces like this dress...

The dress looks fantabulous on you, lucky girl for getting one. I wear the same size so if you ever get tired of it you know who to call :o)

Cleo26 said...

Very pretty, Dina!

AppGal said...

Love it! I would have totally done the same thing...library dress in a library? Perfection. I love how you match your clothes to your destination (fish shirt to the zoo! :) ) I wish I had been as lucky as you to get this dress for such a good deal. As much as I love books (hello! My masters will be in Reading!) I neeeed something like this :) It looks great on you!

HeidiG said...

Love love love it!! Beyond fab, honey!

Yes, I want to see a Dina & Vanessa Polyvore with all your matching outfits. If you don't create it, I will - you know with all my spare time, hehehe.

Hi, guys!!! I am so glad you loved the trip down memory lane. BTW, this dress is actually super-comfortable. I do have to say that I miss the days when J. Crew knocked their items out of the park, so to speak. Nowadays it feels like half the time the items don't even get hit, more like strikes left and right. Sigh!!!

Debye: I *almost* did sell it...because I was all postpartum and 100% convinced I would never fit into it again. I am so glad I waited. :) But, maybe the magic ebay fairy will come along and grant your wish (and in something larger than a 0).

HeidiG.: Maybe there will be time? Hmmm...btw, I saw you clipped the pic of me in the vanessa outfit. :) Sneaky...but super-excited... hint, hint...

Is there soccer tomorrow with all this gross rain everywhere? Poor E and M, they must be all bummed...fall is usually the best time to go out and play!

Lauren H.: Did you just make Gingersnap's dreams come true??? Or maybe AppGal's??? Thank you, hon!

yogagirl said...

Ok--I have all these secret nicknames for people...yes I'm a weirdo...your nickname is "SJP Bloggie girl" (Patina's is "J. Crew Jewelry Girl") cuz Dina you look sooo freakin' adorable in this dress and other outfits which are sooo Sarah Jessica Parker-esh!
