i’m wearing: printed ponte dress c/o london times, forever21 wool-blend coat, h&m clutch, bcbgeneration pumps and ann taylor & f21 necklaces.

i have always been a girly girl and i don’t think i’ve ever met a dress i didn’t like. short, midi or maxi…i love them all. but recently i’ve been obsessed with shift and drop-waist dresses (see here, here and here). which pretty much makes london times + me a match made in heaven! a store with nothing but dresses…yes, please. and right now london times is having a fun contest where one lucky gal will win a $200 london times shopping spree. all you have to do to enter to win is visit their facebook page and submit your 2013 style resolutions! here are mine:

1. stop buying pieces that i know are not flattering on my body type just because they are “trendy”. like these cropped pants…i KNOW i do not look good in cropped pants but i couldn’t pass up the $14.95 price tag.

2. layer, layer, layer. as a native ca girl, i am slightly challenged in the “layering” department.

3. organize my wardrobe room. i promised my husband that if he let me turn our spare room into a wardrobe room that i would keep my clothes organized instead of pouring out of my laundry basket. it sure would save a lot of time if i didn’t have to dig through three different closets to find that sweater i haven’t worn in over a year.

    Love that we are camel coat twins today – yay! This dress is such a fun print and you definitely look better in a shift than anyone else I know. 🙂

    P.S. Isn’t there a resolution missing here…like plan a trip to visit your blogging buddy in NY??

    I think a lot of those northern girls are so good at layering because they have to be. I’m still slightly challenged in that department too. I love this dress and coat together. You look so gorgeous!!

    I can truly relate to being a dressy girl….& being truly challenged in the layering thing! But we CA girls can still rock those cold-weather stuff ….like you just did here!!

    I LOVE this shift! The contrasting patterns are so wonderful! I think you looked GREAT in those cropped pants, but totally agree that most of the time, getting a good fit is more important than following a trend. Hope you win!

    I’m just going to steal your resolutions because those are SPOT on! I’m the worst about buying styles that don’t work on my body. I blame online shopping! I love that dress! Loved it when you did a snap shot of the print, love it even more in person!

    I love the idea of fashion and beauty resolutions! I think everyone gets caught up in the “healthy eating losing weight” and whatnot. I love your resolutions.
    And you can pull off the drop waist so well! You have a great body for it. Such a classic look today.
