Ok, so where am I going to find another dress like this one? Seriously. It is pretty damn perfect and I can't keep it. Tears!

This outfit was from Saturday, when B, K and I ventured into Virginia for delicious sandwiches from the Italian Store. B fancies himself an Italian sandwich connoisseur and the Milano is his favorite.

  6. Love this whole look. Everything works together. It's like Frida Kahlo goes to the Southwest, if you know what I mean. Beautiful colourful mix that makes me think of sand and flowers. And you look great. I love that those shoes don't have a strap overtop of the ankle. It makes them look so free and it really shows the ankle in a sexy way.

  18. Oh how gutting that you cannot keep it; what about searching for some fabric and making your own?

  22. Wow what a dress! I'm mesmerized by the colors and I'm loving the print on the lower half of the skirt. Why can't you keep it though? If you're wearing it right now, I just wouldn't take it off ;-)

  27. Oh.my. This dress evoked some strange reaction in my heart- I can't even describe how awesome I think this dress is. It's like the colors and pattern are remniscent of something I wore in my childhood, I think. Man, this is what fashion and style is about: getting someone (sometimes complete stranger) to respond to something you're wearing on a level deeper than, "That's cute". Well-done, E!

  59. Aww, why can't you keep it? Somehow this dress is so different from what you usually wear, but it's no less "you". I also love that the shoes and bag are brown. Anything else would've killed it perhaps.
