Good morning, girls, and a belated Happy New Year to everyone! Pretty bad that this is my first post of 2011, but I really struggled getting back into the swing of things after the holiday whirlwind. That, and the freezing cold weather here in NYC does not make this girl feel especially motivated!:)
Well, now that we've entered January and are one month closer to spring, I finally feel that I can realistically start looking at some of these new little dresses that are popping up all over the place. I especially love this blue and green dress from Anthropologie, and can't wait to make it mine one day very soon! Sure, I won't be wearing it for about 5 months, but I can look ahead to the warmer weather and dream.
I already know that this is going to fit me well, because it's basically a copy of last summer's "Twinkle Twinkle" dress that I tried on months back. I passed on that version because the print was a little too whimsical for my taste, but this new version is perfect. Green polka dots on a beautiful blue background? Sign me up!
Take Action Dress by Girls from Savoy - $168
Here is the Twinkle Twinkle Dress from last year. I just couldn't deal with the stars.
I also did some post-Christmas shopping over at Bloomingdale's and scored an amazing deal on a Mackage coat! After trying on several styles at the Soho store, I fell in love with the Brenda coat in the off white shade, but they were completely sold out in most sizes across the country. I was so sad, but lo and behold, Bloomingdale's had ONE left and it was my size...for about $150 less. I can't find a decent shot of the light color version online, so I've attached the black one so everyone can see what this looks like. It's gorgeous and the quality is amazing! I just love the collar, too.
Mackage Brenda Coat - This is the black version, but I bought it in off white.
I also bought a beautiful Cynthia Steffe sweater dress at 40% off. It is such a sexy little dress, and I promise to post pics as soon as I wear it!
Hope you're all enjoying 2011 thus far, and I'll be back shortly to show off my latest purchases. Have a terrific weekend!
