Broken blocks shift by Maeve + bubble

Broken blocks silk shift by Maeve:  Anthropologie, fall 2011
Bubble necklace in brilliant blue:  J.Crew, fall 2011
Boots:  Coach, fall 2009
Do you ever purchase something for an absolute steal...and then never wear it?  Yeah, me too.  This dress is a perfect example.  It poppoed back on Anthropologie's website after Christmas last year for the insanely low price of $29.95 ( original retail price was $228.)  I ordered it and hoped for its arrival. (you know how unfortunately un-dependable Anthro sale items can be online, right?)  Well the Anthro gods sent it to me, and I was so excited...then it sat lonely in my closet for nearly a year.  I finally pulled it out to wear for an event last night. 

Now I know this crazy dress isn't for fact I was cracking up at one review online that said it looked like a clown and Lilly Pulitzer collaborated on it.  But I love it.  The full sleeves, shift shape, and silk material...beautiful. And for less the the price of taking all the kids to Subway...I love it even more.  Next time I will definitely wear heels rather than boots...I think it will look more streamlined. 

Look how long my hair has gotten!  Lordy I'm starting to look like a hippie.  Thanks for visiting!


  1. I actually had considered that dress when it was on sale but it sold out in my size before I could snag it. I love the fit of the body on you!

    1. Thanks, I am glad the Anthro gods were smiling and it actually got to me! Only 1 size popped back...a 6...and I snagged it!
