Oh the day I had! It was long and here I am cleaning up toys at 10pm! I normally don’t wear a dress to pick up, but tripping over toys when I walk through the door isn’t a thrill. My son’s ‘car’ makes a nice prop, don’t you think? Beats a handbag! One of the best reasons to live in NYC are the sample sales. I scored this dress for $100 at the Diane von Furstenberg sample sale last week. I think I may have been the only person to buy only one thing and for what I endured at the sample sale, I actually deserved the dress for free. To say it was my worst nightmare is an understatement! I avoided buying anything with a pattern because I have a feeling I would see it everywhere! There was tons of inventory. I loved the color of this dress and the cut is perfect for me. I adore a v-neck that is lose on top and fitted on the bottom. It hides my worst and shows off my best…my bottom half. That said, the drop waist and attached wrap belt made this dress a no-brainer for me.
Bracelet: Hermes Clic Clac H Bracelet GM size, $630
Watch: Vintage Cartier (no longer available). This Cartier Women’s Santos Demoiselle 18K Gold and Stainless Steel Watch is similar, $5,911.76.
I’m personally not one to wear a lot of necklaces or anything too large around my neck. I don’t like to feel like I’m choking and I tend to think too much adornment around my neck makes me look really top heavy. What can I say? I wish I were flat-chested.
