Thank you all for reading my MEGA-post yesterday. I feared that I wrote so much that your eyes would glaze over, you would fall asleep at your computer, your coffee would spill all over your computer, and I would be solely responsible for thousands of dollars of damage per household. :)
I still have to get my New Year's Eve day and night outfits published, but since I wore both a Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan and the stardust pencil skirt (not together), I want to spend more time on that post.
Black, Grey, and White for a Winter's Day! by dinagideon featuring J Crew
Today's outfit came from two places--I wanted to look retro, fun, and lady-like, and I wanted to stay warm (it only topped at 29 degrees Fahrenheit here in NOVA). Originally I wanted to wear wool shorts with tights, but then Mr. Dina reminded me of the actual wind chill, and I declined.
So I pulled out an old fave, the Chain Link Print Sweaterdress, which I have not worn since getting pregnant with CW. I bought it as a present for myself when it went on super-sale in fall of 2007. It is a collection piece, and it shows. The merino is super-soft, the print is exquisite and different, and the sleeves have the most darling button detail at the elbows.
Everything in the polyvore is accurate, except the gloves which are from Ann Taylor, and the tights are Merona from Target.
On me--with the button-down layered under the dress. The tights are super-opaque and lovely for this weather. The belt was just the thing to break up the pattern.
Dress: Size Medium.
Button-Down: Size Medium.
Tights: Size Medium-Tall.
Shoes: Size 10.
Belt: Size Small.
And here is the outfit with the cloche. Big fan of the cloche. I may be making a stupid face here, but I shouldn't have been...I should have been jumping for joy. This cloche kept me super-warm. Since I also wore the ivory Shipley I bought last year (stadium cloth coats from J. Crew are da bomb), I actually over-heated in the car. Yes, I did.
Baby is so cute here, holding my hand and looking all loving. :)
See and talk with you all soon!
