the stuff that dreams are made of

the stuff that dreams are made of

I've fallen completely and totally in love with this Erdem dress. Erdem designs must be created with my body type (read flat-chested) in mind, because it fits like a glove and the skirt flares perfectly with no weird seam puckerage in the back (a common affliction for long-bodied girls like myself). The design is very simple, but fabric is out of this world. I feel like I'm wearing a work of art when I put it on. Don't you love it when you find something so perfectly made and you just know you're going to wear it forever?

My mom gave me another Hermès bangle for Christmas this year. Kind of loving this tradition, not gonna lie. This one has little purses on it. Perfect, right?

I agree, that dress is a work of art on you, it fits like a glove! And those bracelets from your mom are so pretty, you have to keep the collection going on. Beautiful and ladylike Prada pumps too.

it's fabulous!! I love how you layered it with the quilted leather jacket!

I think flatter girls can pull off more garments than busty girls which I think is a plus! Embrace it!

Daphne said...

Eli said...

the dress is stunning on you, I like the quilted jacket and the fishnet tights. It's all wrapped up together so nice!

I don't consider myself very endowed but some dresses at times will flatten my bust and make me feel like I have DD's! Target is notorious for this.

chaoskontrolowany said...

Lovely dress and jacket! You look so pretty:)

alexandra cecilia said...

Im forcing that tradition on my mother this year. I already have it all figured out: Ill buy her hermes scarfs and shell get me the bangles (oh yes). I love jewellery and those are just marvelling. I could honestly spent my entire day by looking at them. Plus, they go perfectly with the print of the dress! Nice buys!

p.s. I am loving the tight...are those holes on the sides? love love lovee!

Pixie in Pumps said...

those bangs are so gorgeous! what an amazing tradition! And I love that jacket as well.

Amy said...

I love your shoe collection, E! I just saw a pair very similar to the ones you're wearing and contemplated it. Maybe at the next Warehouse sale ...

Anyway, any traditions where gifts are involved, whether we're the giver or the receiver - is kinda, sorta, awesome. Cheers to great moms!

Delane said...

So pretty.

I have a black Jagear dress that I feel this way about. It is the perfect fit, and really well made.

Michal said...

Aaah the colors in the dress are so gorgeous and the pattern is so soft and dreamy. It fits you perfectly. I love the quilted leather jacket & that bracelet too. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours!

A Stylized Hysteria said...

I'm as much in love with the dress as you are. The pattern and rich colors are so, so pretty!
