Yes I do infact love this dress.

Dress Gap 2008 (might be 07)
Necklace and earrings Subversive line for Target (2007)
Shoes LIz Claiborne (2004)
Cami Cami too (yesterday)

This is a fake cami! its genius.

I have been "shopping my closet" (can I say I hate that term) for a few months now and really halted the purchasing of clothes. I have only added a few investment pieces and filled in a few things I needed the past few months. (plain t-shirts and camis)

Its funny though because I know some people think I am always wearing something new. The things they always think are new I have usually worn half a dozen times and photographed too. I just like mixing up how I wear things. Sometimes I wear it exactly the same way. The reason I feel in love with this dress though is how simple it is and retro cut and it lets me go nuts with necklaces.
Some previous wearings of this dress.

Now that I said I haven't bought many things lately.... I got a coat last night. Its from the Cirque 21 line. It is absolutly amazing. It is a retro cut, empire waist ruffle tucked collar and a heart satin lining. The best part? A giant industrial zipper up the back. Its retro but with a really modern twist. I can't wait to wear it. I tweeted to mother nature last night saying if she cooled it down I wouldn't use aerosols. We shall see huh? It's in the 90s right now. But its New England it will change without warning and snow in a week.

What are you desperately wanting to wear right now that the temps won't allow?

I LOVE this dress...It's so versatile!

What do I want to wear now that I can't? Coats...this is sad but true.

Last season my coats were tight so I sort of couldn't button the last button. Now that I've lost almost 40 pounds they're kind of big..and they look normal.

I can't believe I'm actually telling someone this, but it's really, really exciting..bring on the wool..

This new pair of leopard print leather pumps I have. Foot sweat = nasty.

That dress is a really great piece to have in your wardrobe! I love the various ways you've accessorized it so it's always exciting and new.

I can see why you love it - flattering, versatile, and all-around awesome!

I can't wait to haul out my tall boots, and wear my ankle-length leather skirt. Eee!

It's such a great basc solid color dress. I wish I could wear any of my dresses not of a natural fibre, only cottons can do in this heat!

Sal I saw your tweet last night on the awesome deal you got on the skirt thats fantastic! (I am miss matilda) I also want to wear my boots or closed toed shoes for that matter!

Lisa I want to wear my giraffe print pumps!

mrs.b thanks

kenz no embarrassed thats bad ass! I know kinda how you feel I lost 30 lbs on WW in 06-07 and nothing is better than buttoning something that didn't previously button. I have maintained my almost exact to a 2 lbs weight since June 2007.

I'm really dying to buy about five of those argyle sweater vests and cardigans they have at Old Navy right now and wear the sh*t out of them all Fall.

Also, last season, American Eagle (of all places) had this adorable double breasted sweater pea coat I really wanted and waited too long to buy. INC also had a double breasted pea coat that was fleece/sweatshirt material. I'm going to be on the look-out for similar sweaters this year and just grab them instead of waiting for a sale. Both of those last winter I waited for a sale and OF COURSE they ended up having them only in XS and XXL. PFFT.

Like this dress... it seems to be one of those "I feel pretty" garments !
I wish I could wear clothes from different seasons, but I have to live with rainy and sunny as my "seasons".

Beautiful suede boots that I bought at the beginning of the summer and have never worn. Also my cardigans. Here in Florida we won't see a cool day until November...

I can't wait to wear my new patterned tights I scored at Walmart for $1 each. I can't wait to see pics of your coat, it sounds lovely! Cute outfits yesterday and today, too :)
