i’m wearing: striped ponte shift dress c/o london times, loft necklace, kooba kristen tote and bcbg pumps (similar here although i REALLY want these bow patent pumps now).

as you all know, i am pretty much a dress-aholic. so when i was introduced to london times, i was like a kid in a candy store. this dress has it all…shift cut, stripes and my new fave color combo…black & blue! oh, and i can’t wait to wear this one with tights and boots! fall has finally arrived here in southern ca…the mornings are crisp and the evenings are definitely cooler. speaking of fall weather…do any of you have tips for taking pics in overcast/grey skies? i feel like gloomy skies are just as hard to photograph in as direct sunlight. i always end up with harsh shadows, etc. help!

    First of all, I love this dress and it looks so amazing on you! I’m wearing one from them in my post tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

    Secondly, about your pictures – we have been dealing with the same gray skies here and it took us a while to figure out how to do our pictures, but we finally mastered it. I don’t want to write a novel here, so email me and I’ll give you all the deets!

    This morning your wish for pulling out tights and boots may come true. We are welcoming a rainy day, just a bit north of you in OC. Maybe you’ll be dodging raindrops today too!

    I LOVE your dress Jenn, but I have to disagree. In my case, I think even ONE dress would be too many. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am so not a dress wearer. I see them on other people (like you) and love them but then when I wear them, I feel so dressy. I’m trying to adventure into the dress world though. I really love the style of your dress!

    I have a dress so similar to this one. Its only gray and black though, but has the same wide stripes, sleeves and shift cut. Honestly, its one of my favorites. I wear it to class, out for a night, and even to bed sometimes. I feel like London Times could be damaging to my wallet in the near future…lol!

    Terminally chic dress, and the accessorizing is perfect. In stripes we trust.

    Amen to that, I love dresses! Now to find some opaque tights to go with them for the colder temps :). As for overcast skies, I love them! I will “warm up” the photo in a software afterwards. Here’s a great article on I Heart Faces about cloudy-day photos! http://www.iheartfaces.com/2012/09/cloudy-day-photography-tutorial/

    Love stripes! They are always flattering on me. I wish I had photog. skills, just got a new canon and I’m lost!
