What I'm wearing:
*Forever 21 Lace Dress (similar here)
*J.Crew (outlet) Ruffle Collar Cardigan
*Jessica Simpson Leopard Patent Pumps
Does this dress look familiar? If so, it's probably because it's a knockoff of anthropologie/Tracy Reese's "Spinning Lace" dress from an earlier season. It's from Forever 21, but the quality of the dress is not too shabby, and the material feels soft to the touch, not icky like most synthetic fabrics from the store. It's not on the site right now but I did get it very recently in store (for sizing reference, I am wearing a Small in these photos).
Paired this dress with a kelly green cardigan, which came in handy in my freezing cold office yesterday. Why are the buildings so cold inside? Every single I walk into my lobby from outside I start shivering violently. Seems excessive to me. Wasn't sure what kind of shoes to pair with this (my initial instinct was to go with my yellow peep toes) but thought these leopard patent pumps ("borrowed" from my sister's closet) would look cute with the lace!
I think I'll change out the belt next time I wear it, it's a bit flimsy.
Wanted to show the exposed zipper on the back.
Happy Friday! This week has been a bit crazy, with the earthquake and now the impending hurricane coming to NYC. Luckily I'm in a no-evacuation zone, and (obviously) don't live in a highrise building, so I think I'll be okay. I'm hoping that it won't end up being bad at all, but preparing for the worst. And by preparing I mean buying some bottled water, wine, and books. Hope everyone that is potentially in the path of Irene stays safe!
