Iskaldur Dress & Outfit of the Day

Hi readers, how are you? Staying warm this winter? We're expecting a foot of snow in NYC over the next 24 hours...I'm praying for a snow day off from work, but not counting on it!!!!

I am so excited, because I received my latest Ebay purchase at work today!!! I found the Iskaldur Dress from last year and snapped that baby up right away!

The color and pattern are gorgeous, but I'm a little confused as to why the armholes are so HUGE. I mean, even with a tank underneath, I feel completely exposed! I will definitely have to top this with a cute cardi or jacket, but it was still worth the purchase!

The other strange thing is there seems to be some sort of tie underneath the collar over the right shoulder...can't really make out the purpose of this, or what to do with it...any readers care to share their insight on this? If you own this dress, please let me know what the hell this tie is supposed to look like, because as far as I can tell, it adds nothing to the design and I'm about to pull out the scissors and snip it off.

I leave you all with my cute little outfit of the day, featuring my gorgeous Anthropologie Field Game Cardigan by Charlotte Tarantola. I paired this with a shimmery gold tank, a cream-colored skirt, and my cute new navy patent peep-toe shoes that unfortunately got cut off in this photo. This is what happens when the photographer is a foot taller than you!! And yes, the photo is cropped like crazy, but I wanted to avoid showing you the messy wires along my wall.

Have a lovely evening everyone!


  1. Oh my! I also bid on that Iskaldur dress (the seller had the Organdy Tea Dress, too), but it went for more than I wanted to pay. So glad it went to you, though! It's so pretty. I want to see it on you!

  2. It is beautiful, but it didn't come with the damn slip, so I have to figure something out for the armhole area...likely have to wear it with a cardigan. Did you buy the Organdy Tea Dress? I wanted that soooooooooooooo bad and lost out by $3!!! So sad!

  3. Oh, no, the Organdy Tea Dress went for more than I thought it would! Too rich for my blood (especially after the Tawny Garden Dress and various other items recently).

    I'm so sorry you lost the dress. My eyes are peeled for another one for you.
