The Correll Correll dress was supposed to going up on slowre today as part of the new arrivals, but as I was photographing it, I decided it deserved a modeling shot, and then I did NOT want to remove it, so I bought it for myself. I really try hard not to do that, but I had to in this case. I didn’t think that the color would work on me, but it really does. And the dress is so interesting and beautiful, I couldn’t resist. I am wearing a slip with it, and I would probably recommend that, it’s pretty sheer. The thing I love the most about it is that it’s not cut super-large like most designers are cutting things nowadays; the chest just fits (and I’m small), and the sleeves are “normal,” instead of raglan or dolman, helping the dress fit better, looking a little more put together and less like a sack. I’m not knocking dresses that look like sacks, by any means, but sometimes a girl wants a little shape…
Did you see that Black Crane FW/17 dropped at Mohawk yesterday? I’m sort of meh about everything so far (there’s still more coming)…which is unusual for me, most of the time I find one or two things I think I need. But I’m not complaining!! If you do see something you like, I recommend buying it now, and the returning it if you don’t like it – pieces have a tendency to sell out fast and sometimes are pretty hard to find afterwards.
I ordered some of the new Everlane cotton sweaters this week – Believe it or not, I do have one or two “holes” in my wardrobe, and one is for lightweight, drapey sweaters. I keep trying to find THE ONE, and fail. I had a wool one by Acne studios that I loved the style of, but not the color. Before seeking out another wool version I wanted to try Everlane’s cotton version; I ordered smalls and mediums in a couple styles. Stay tuned for a review!
And as you can see, I got one of their nylon fanny packs too. I actually wear one when I walk Dagny during the day because I normally wear dresses (or my caftan) at home that don’t have pockets and I need something to carry my phone, etc., in. But mine is sporty, and I thought I might like one that’s a little more “chic” and that I can adjust to wear as a sling if I want to, for traveling. Meh. This is a good, roomy fanny pack, and I love the dark green, but it might be a little too much for me. I like the nylon though, so I’d recommend checking out the new nylon pieces if you’re looking for an easy backpack or tote – they’re pretty good looking.
Leo and I are watching Ozark on Netflix and it’s just okay. The story goes like a shakespearean tragedy – like, what can POSSIBLY go wrong next – but I can sit and watch Jason Bateman for an hour, no matter the story…
I don’t really know…my sister is here for work and leaving Saturday afternoon, so I’ll have more time with her, but otherwise, no plans for the weekend. What about you?
