Ready For Fall and a Pretty New Dress

Happy Labor Day Weekend, readers! To all of my girls in the US, you know that this means a fabulous long weekend and a day off of work on Monday. My job has been so exhausting and stressful lately, so I definitely need a little R&R to recharge my batteries.

Labor Day also signals the turning point from summer into fall in my mind...That's right, ladies, I am seriously on the hunt for boots, coats, sweaters, etc. I loved my airy summer dresses, but I'm ready to change things up just a bit.

Of course, I have about 100 items in my shopping cart over on the Anthropologie site. Can't buy any of them at the moment, but by month's end, I plan to own a whole new batch of beauties. I'm also trying to branch out and pick up a few things from other stores, as well.

Speaking of branching out, I was checking out Tracy Reese's Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear line and came across a gorgeous dress that I just HAD to pre-order. Featuring a beautiful burnout pattern, it's made of an amazing, eye-popping shade of sky blue and tan jersey fabric. It looks so cute and comfortable! It seems to be the fall version of the Speckled Ink Dress (carried at Anthro this past Spring) by Tracy Reese that so many of us tried on and loved.

It should be shipping out in another week, and I'm so excited!:) I wish I had better pics to post, but it sold out rather quickly from the Tracy Reese website and I haven't been able to find any better shots online. The neckline is hidden by the scarf that accessorizes the dress on the runway, but the cut of the dress is identical to the black version shown below.





See how similar it appears to the Speckled Ink Dress design?



Have a terrific night everyone!

  2. I love this dress. I can't wait to see this on you! Hopefully, I'll be able to see it in stores soon because this might replace my desire for the Dreamy Drape/Speckled Ink dress since it's Fall and Winter friendly.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. I love the blue color. I think it is sold out online though. I had added this to my cart and debated the night before you posted this... and now I do not see it online at all!

  12. Thanks for the comments everyone! There's a snag now, though! I pre-ordered this item and received a call on Saturday saying there was a factory problem and the dress has been delayed. I don't mind waiting, but the girl had very little info and made it seem as if it may be canceled completely. Find that hard to believe, as it's featured prominently on the website, but now I have to wait to see what happens.
