i’m wearing: crepe bow dress, spotted haircalf cuff and wristlet and patent leather platform heels c/o ann taylor.

i was thrilled when ann taylor asked me to go check out their new fall arrivals. not only because i love their clothes but because we have a brand new concept store in san diego that i’d been dying to check out as well. i missed the grand opening when we were in palm springs. the store was bright and inviting and the fitting room area feels like you are playing dress up in a fancy wardrobe room! i fell in LOVE with this dress immediately. i’ve got hips so shorter skirts look better on me than pencil skirts (in my opinion) and the bow accent on the top makes it the perfect LBD. and can we talk about these shoes for a minute? i rarely wear platform heels any more…i’m not sure if it’s just because i have been obsessed with pointy heels lately or my fear of breaking an ankle. but these are INSANELY comfortable. the only problem is that they are so pretty that i was scared i was going to scuff them up. in fact, they are so pretty that i almost just want to put them up on display in my bedroom. that’s totally normal, right?

    Haha I find myself wanting to do the same thing with shoes! I’ll see a pretty pair and want them knowing I’d never REALLY wear them but they’re just so fun to look at!

    OMG, you have no idea – I added those shoes to my wish list the other day…I want them so bad! Worried that if I wait for a sale, they’ll be gone in my size πŸ™ Love the clutch too!!

    Oh my, the dress is amazing and you look beautiful! I love Ann Taylor, unfortunately we don’t have it here in Germany. So whenever I am in the US I explore the stores into the last corner…and always find something. πŸ˜‰ Have a lovely day! xo, Christina

    I love ANN TAYLOR! Their shoes are awesome. I wore pair of heels for 10 years, no, I am not kidding. I finally had to retire them because they were literally worn out. Love this LBD too, classy!
