I realized as I was wearing my James Perse sweatshirt dress over the weekend that I’d never done an outfit picture with it, so here it is. I got it in February while I was in Atlanta and needed another layer, and found it at Off Fifth (they still have a couple, but not in “neutral” colors) for about half the normal price.
Truthfully, I’d never really liked this dress on me (I’d tried it before), but I tried it on with leggings and was completely sold. Now, without, I still like it, but it’s short(er) than I generally feel comfortable wearing. Although, I have figured out that the shorter the hemline, the flatter my shoes can be. Yay!! 😉
Also, I think I’ve ALMOST settled on a dress for the wedding this weekend: the Acne Studios dress (or the LnA Asymmetrical hem dress). The Acne dress is the most “beach wedding appropriate” and I do love it…and since I haven’t been able to sell it yet, I might as well enjoy it, right? Another major reason for narrowing it down to those two dresses is that I don’t have to wear control undergarments with either of them. Bonus. If I wear the Acne studios dress though, I cannot take the red Jerome Dreyfuss bag, so I’ll have to take my mini twee, the “nude” one instead. Yeah, I know. #firstworldproblems
oh…and I did get some Kiehl’s samples over the weekend to try and see if I needed to buy them before the F&F code expires TODAY (FAMILY for 20% off). I do like the BB cream, and I think that is really all I need now for a little coverage, and a lot of sunscreen. I also tried the micro-blur skin perfecter and was un-impressed generally. It was a primer, basically, and having to add sunscreen on top sort of seemed to negate the “blurring” affects.
