Sale alert: Two F&F events going on the next few days:

1) Take 25% off at Shopbop's F&F through 10/17 with code INTHEFAMILY25.

Closet favorites include:
- Blank NYC spray-on jeans - $66.00 with code (I sized up to 26 / outfits here)

2) Take 25% off at Saks' F&F through 10/20 with code FRNFAM.

Closet favorites include:
- Burberry Marystow trench - $821.25 with code (I'm wearing sz 2 / outfit below; also here, here)
- Longchamp large Le Pliage - $108.74 with code (outfits with bag: here, here, here)

I'd also suggest Tory Burch riding boots (love my Nadine from last year): the Bristol ($371.25), the Lizzie ($393.75).


Every time I do a closet inventory, this lace dress ends up in the should-I-or-should-I-not pile. Should I sell it because the fit is off? Or should I keep it because I can cheat and double the dress as a skirt? The result is the same every time (thus far). I've had no problems whittling down the dress section in my wardrobe, but this one? I can't seem to let go.

  1. I love that first picture! And I always enjoy seeing this dress on you and the many ways you wear it.

    Personally, this dress is the source of many heartaches; I accidentally threw mine in the machine several months ago and ruined it so am living vicariously through you! :) Keep it, it looks really great on you!

    1. OH NO :( Well, if I ever part with it, you get first dibs :)

  2. Have you thought about having it made into a skirt? A good tailor could put a zipper (or if you are/know someone handy--an elastic waistband) and for an inexpensive price you could keep a great piece.

    1. The thought has not crossed my mind -- but now I'll definitely consider that option! Thanks Jem!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
