I’ve been wanting a silk dress for a while now, even though silk scares me. I only own one other silk item – a blouse from Everlane – and while I love it, I NEVER wear it, EVER, because I’m worried about staining, etc. So it was a big deal for me to get this dress, given that I don’t have a great track record with silk. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE it and am so glad I did; I can tell I’ll wear it a lot (probably more often in cooler weather), and it’ll be great for layering. And now I’m not so worried about staining because before I bought it, I found a slight “mark” on it and asked the SA at Madewell about it. She took it over to the steamer and steamed it out! Brilliant. Gotta get me one of those.
And just to prove to you guys (and myself) that I DO TRY color sometimes, here I am in the blue version of the dress (via Instagram, are you following me?). I liked it, but c’mon, the black is SO MUCH better, right? Honestly, if the dress had been a darker, more cobalt blue, it might have appealed to me more, but this is such a bright blue:
Anyway, if I get a bright blue dress, I can’t also get a bright blue bag, can I? I’ve been toying with the idea of getting the 3.1 Philip Lim pashli bag in cobalt blue, either in medium or small, which I think will go beautifully with my all black/gray/white wardrobe. What do you think?
