I’ve been smitten with this little black dress from Akris’s Fall 2009 collection (the back is even more amazing) and this lace dress from Philip Lim’s Resort 2010 collection since I first saw each of them. Anything lacey has been catching my eye lately, so I was really excited to find this dress while “accidentally” shopping a couple weekends ago…
(Blazer – Theory, Dress – Trinity Organic, Pumps – Burberry)
Throwing a fitted blazer over a pretty dress is my go-to outfit for work/play/life these days… I love that this dress looks great with tights and boots now but is totally made for sunny, spring days (which i really, really can’t wait for)! I randomly found it at Filene’s marked down to a ridiculous price of something like $16 so of course, I couldn’t resist. It’s fairly shapeless but a skinny belt will fix that. It doesn’t matter under a fitted blazer anyway and the lace is so pretty that’s all that I care about!
A few other lacey pieces I wouldn’t mind having in my closet right about now: Urban Outfitters Thistlepearl Lace Dress ($30) / Christian Louboutin Candy 85 Pumps (on sale for $643 here if you’re a 35.5) / Tory Burch Lace Tunic ($495)
