As I mentioned in my last post, I spent a good portion of February trying to become the September 2007 Paris Catalog from J. Crew. LOL. You saw the lovely baby cord Linda dress in red in the last post and today you will see a jewel that I have had IN MY CLOSET since September 2007 that I AM NOW JUST STARTING TO WEAR. (There is a story there, of course.)
On Vanessa you see the wool jersey dress with cute darling ruffling at the hem and a mini siloheutte, paired with a citron turtleneck and adorable flats. The love of this dress sang to me when I got the catalog, and even though I was way postpartum with darling Rex's pregnancy, I bucked up and totally bought it in a size medium for full price.
And then I wear it for Mr. Dina. To which he said, "YUCK, what is with that thing at the bottom?" "I no likey." Sadness. :( Sad face. Sigh. It sat forlorn, unworn, for three whole years with all my other wool dresses, protected from moths and dust, but unloved.
I needed to bring the love back.
Since I have started this blog and started wearing some ridiculous ruffles, etc., I think Mr. Dina has gotten used to the over-the-top foolishness of late, so in comparison, the teeny bit of ruffling on this dress seems quite understated now. He saw it and said not one word! Ha! Victory is MINE!
Parisian Pumps, but unfortunately was not available in animal print this last winter (but at $35 on sale, a pretty decent deal--so watch for popbacks).
You all have a fab Sunday. Appears to be gully-washer Sunday here. Yay! ;)
