No Outfit of the Day, But How About a Blast from the Past (Featuring the Emma Peacock Dress)...

My poor, poor CW. She has a fever of 101.4. (HeidiG., I was able to get it...finally!)

I had planned on going out with HeidiG. and have an awesome morning, but my little one wasn't having any of that. When I woke up this morning, she was hot to touch, so I said "no" to HeidiG. and stayed home.

Poor Rex, he LOVES going out. At least we got to play ball for a tiny bit in the backyard to sort of make up for it.


So no outfit of the day...comfort is key. The polyvore above shows what I am wearing (don't worry, no pictures, I wouldn't do that to you all).


Instead I will show off a long ago outfit that I wore back in November. I really liked this outfit. I had always wanted the Emma dress in the peacock print, but could never justify the costs, so I put it off. Well, Mr. Ebay spoke my name back during the spring, and I bought it (and for a lot less than it originally cost).


Dress: J. Crew, Peacock Print Emma Dress, Peacock blue, Size 10, Fall 2007.
Shoes: J. Crew, Jane Suede Flats, Brown, Size 10, Fall 2008.

Speaking of OLD dresses, I have four for sale over at Cash from My Closet.

Have a great day. I hope Baby CW sleeps the fever away (with the help of some baby tylenol--aka "liquid nap.")

Okay, confession time, I *almost* considered putting this dress up for sale in the weekly exchange over at JCA. But now you all have convinced me of my error. I will keep it, hand on heart. :)

DaniBP: Thank you, and CW is better, but supposedly there is something going around. Ugh.

GingerSnap: AWESOME!!! I haven't been able to comment on the last three or four posts at your site, but I have seen all your outfits, and you have me drooling...they are so cute!!! I can see you looking AMAZING in the Emma dress...cannot wait to see it in real life... :)

Rosa: J. Crew does some amazing prints, don't they??? CW is better, but she would be best if she got to meet Lola. ;)

Pamela: Thank you! Yes, the combo of blue and brown can be so lovely!

HeidiG.: Well that is good. I love it when I can be all efficient!!! Great feeling, huh???

If I see you and E. on Sunday I will definitely wear it...

MissMasala: Thank you!!! I like the colors and how nice and comfy it is...btw, baby is way better!!! (Thank goodness!)

Summerilla: Baby CW is better!!! The Emma dress was in a couple of different patterns and fabrics...I think this may have been the most popular, though!!!

Yogagirl: Your comment was the #1 reason why I won't sell it!!!
