Keep wearing those summer dresses

October 16th, 2008

Don’t store your summer dresses away for the winter yet, darlings. You can definitely get more mileage out of those chiffon floral dresses. I was re-organizing my closet and it dawned on me that I didn’t have to pack up a lot of the dresses I wore in the summer. With some layering, you can absolutely still rock them. I’m wearing this cream dress with the lace overlay, one of my favorite and oldest dresses, with a navy blue boyfriend cardigan that I picked up at Target last weekend, and knee-high socks and Michael Kors platform heels, which I also scored at Nordstrom for cheaps last weekend. With the platform and padded insole, they are the most comfortable high heels ever. I’ve been practically living in them.  Dresses work so well with chunky cardigans or leather jackets, a perfect soft-and-hard combination. And high platform heels or boots are better than flats.

I snapped this out of November issue of Lucky Magazine. I absolutely love these floral dresses from Mina UK. Doesn’t the girl’s outfit look fantastic? Love her boots!

And I love the preppy look on the girl in this Hush Puppies ad. I’m pretty much I have something similar to the blue chiffon dress in my closet. Layer a blue stripy long sleeve tee under it and a cropped knit jacket plus a striped tie scarf, and of course wool tights, you’ll be rocking the girly yet cool look.

You can get this adorable Gossip Girl inspired look from dELiA*s:
Mariella Dress $44.50
Marlina Boyfriend Cardigan $44.50
Colored Tight $14.50
Ainsley Coat $99.50 $79.50

    Yay, Club Monaco! A company creetad by a Canadian retail legend, Joe Mimran. I was obsessed with Club Monaco in high school during the 90s. It’s always been my go-to shop to buy fashionable clothing that work at any age. I worked at their swanky Yorkville Store in Toronto for a few years while in college and LOVED the culture of the company. While I was sad that another Canadian retailer was bought out by a US firm, I quickly changed my mind when the selection and fashion-forwardness increased under Ralph Lauren’s direction.Happy to see that more people are able to enjoy Club Monaco!
