i’m wearing: cara drape dress c/o baukjen by isabella oliver, vintage collar necklace found at an estate sale, ann taylor greta pumps, ann taylor fringe ring, various bracelets and my michael kors watch. oh and my new kate spade gold chain clutch was another nordstrom rack score!

when i first saw this dress, i knew my husband was going to love it. i rarely wear anything this fitted anymore but the material is SO fabulous that it feels like you are putting on a dress that is made out of spanx. only is actually feels good on and it drapes in all of the right places. and of course i LOVE the color.

and totally unrelated…last night was eep’s first time trick-or-treating and he had THE BEST time ever. we drove to a local neighborhood that is a lot more trick-or-treat/kid friendly than ours and he had an absolute blast. i was worried he was going to be afraid to walk up to strangers doors but i really think he had the time of his life. my heart melted every time he said thank you to each person who gave him a treat. and then after he went to bed….mama enjoyed his candy. =)

    Damn girl!! You look GORGEOUS in this dress!! You’re husband better have taken you out with this dress on! The color is stunning on you and the fit is perfection!
    Also love how you paired it with nude and gold accessories-no other colors can compete with that dress.

    Oh and I used to be a candy stealer but this year Grace had a meltdown when my sister and I mentioned eating her candy. Guess I’ll have to buy my own.
