Always a challenge to shoot directly into a sunset. I feel like I get it right about 50% of the time, and the other 50 is a complete disaster. Can barely see what I’m wearing, too. I promise you it’s all opaque black except for the wrapped and tied Francesca’s cardigan, which is a little sheer.
This is actually a dress from Talbots, which I got with a 40% coupon from Extra Petite (stacked on top of a 30% off clearance or something). The Talbots platform pumps are from the same order. They’ve got loads of colorful spring things, although sizing tends to be inconsistent and the wool quality definitely isn’t up to Ann Taylor or J.Crew. However, the fit-and-flare silhouette is something you don’t usually see in suiting dresses. And it’s one of my favorite cuts.
I’ve been wearing my usual Helmut Lang coat. Its days are definitely numbered now that it’s practically 70 degrees. The lifespan of my MIA boots is shortening, too, because I’m wearing through the soles. I should have gotten two! I’m going to have to find something to replace them soon. And oh look, it’s the faux-ostrich Merona bag again. Possibly the best Target find ever!
