dress: swapped with kate
tights: american apparel
belt worn as headband: gap
a few weeks back i was feeling a total lack of inspiration. it was day after day of feeling as though i had nothing to wear in a closet filled to the brim. since swapping has become the new shopping i thought it might be fun to swap a few items with my fashion soulmate, kate, who lives in seattle. kate and i went to grad school together and before we were friends we were both envious of one another's style. i miss kate beyond words and thought this would be a great way to reconnect and get some new inspiration. we each shipped a box to the other coast and i can't wait to wear each of the pieces that kate sent along.
this dress was the first thing i tried on when i received my package. it is the perfect dress for a monday; drapey, soft and bright. i think it would be perfect for warm weather, but to make it appropriate for our current cold spring slump i thought i'd pair it with black. i hope to style this up one more time before i have to part with these items and send a new round to seattle.
