This is one of my favorite dresses, but I'm kind of surprised how different it looks when worn with a blazer.  Need to try this with more favorite dresses...

Leaving for the yearly Nola trip tomorow and can hardly contain myself.  Going to eat my face off.  Want to live there and be irresponsible forever.  Details of last year's trip here.

Foley and Corinna dress
vintage blazer
wolf necklace from Colorado
H&M tights
Maison Martin Margiela shoes
vintage Ralph Lauren clutch

Sigh, I wish I could wear a blazer with such panache. I'm unfortunately short for that. Pairing it with that asymmetrical hemlined dress is gorgeous, by the way.
