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.

PS Cindy Whitehead, skateboard and stylist extraordinaire, gave me an award. It's something else to get noticed by an icon!

this is a bit of a different outfit for you! but the colors suit you well! I love the pattern on your skirt and the necklace you chose to wear with it!

tess said...

wow that is amazing, the colors are great

I agree - this dress totally suits you.

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.

Perfect in its simplicity - cut and colours. Why can't you keep it? It looks so great on you.
Congratulations on your award!

bestie said...

Aww too bad you can't keep it -- it really does look quite smashing on you. :D

daisychain said...

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

Leah said...

I really wish you can keep the dress... it's so perfect on you. xoxo

princesspolitico said...

This dress is so perfect on you! What a shame you have to give it back.

Haute World said...

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 ;-)

Myriam said...

Leia said...

I wish you didn't have to give the dress back - it looks like it is MADE for you!

Kelly @ blackdog finds said...

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!

Susan said...

oh, miss summer! :))
sorry for being a bad blogger friend lately, I am a mess... I hope I will get back on track very soon :)
have a lovely week, darling!

Eva said...

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.
