Lady Ice slips into her soul Lady Ice leaves a house so cold

I bought this dress for full price off the Anthropologie website, against my better judgement. I usually only purchase things from their sale section because I find their clothing is often overpriced but this dress was receiving such rave reviews that I was sure it would sell out before being reduced. Today I wore it for the first time and I think this is one of my better purchases this year.

Sweater: Joe Fresh (remixed)
Necklace: Had it for ages
Dress: Anthropologie Layered Column Dress
Shoes: Fluevog Rococo | Lady Ophelia

Wow...I think this is quite a flattering dress. (If I can say that without sounding conceited.)  It's very form fitting and I was a little worried that it wouldn't be appropriate for work but looking at the photos I don't see any problem with it.

Some reviewers on the site commented on the fact that the edges of each panel are unfinished and felt that this took away from it's quality. I think that hemming each panel would add unnecessary bulk to each section to I understand why they left them raw.

I wasn't planning on wearing these shoes today - I had taken another pair of red shoes - but these were under my desk so I thought "what the hell".

It was chilly in my office today so I ended up wrapping myself in this shawl that I knit out of some qiviet yarn. It doesn't look like much (and was a very easy knit) but it's extremely warm.

Today I was thankful for keeping a spare pair of tights in my desk.



    And as my mom would have said, "It's quite smart."

  2. That's an awesome dress; really flattering!

  3. Ok, I have to stop and comment - that is a GREAT Dress and it looks More-Than-Great on you! Well done!!
