A French Connection

I recently made my very first Gilt purchase and I couldn't be happier. This French Connection dress is elegant and classic and purchased at less than 50% of its retail price, I couldn't feel less guilty about it. I do wish I had more places to wear elegant dresses like this. Perhaps that is why I turned my favorite fields into Easter egg colors?
I'm a little addicted to Gilt, but thankfully I spend most of my days merely "window shopping." Since Gilt is an invite-only site, if you would like to get in you can click here and use my invitation code. Don't say I didn't warn you if you get hooked though!

Outfit details: dress- French Connection via Gilt, tights- We Love Colors via swap with Erin, shoes- Urban Outfitters, bracelets- Erica Weiner Jewelry

  4. what a beautiful dress! i love that length - it feels so fresh and elegant, somehow. like it forces you to be beautiful on your own, without having to resort to cheap tricks of leg and bosom.

  19. this is such a wonderful dress! (L)

    I know the 60s were an utopia, now they're a dream to me, everybody was so selfish to the rest of the society during that decade but I just complain about why our society has to be the way it is?? History has made it the way it is now, I know, but we could be living in a society like the ones in Brave New World and 1984 and everybody would think it's the normal thing. I do understand that there are certain things one has to do for the society but for example, why do people have to stare at you when you say things like "I don't want to have children", why is it so bad not to do what everyone expects you to do??? Everybody should live their lifes the way they want, doing what they have to for the rest of people of course.

    Probably that'd be the most individualistic way to live but we are already so f**ing selfish, why not live the way we want?

  20. You look beautiful. I like the color filters you've used on the photos, the clouds look like a painted movie set! The yellow tights are perfect with that dress, what a fun addition.

  21. You look gorgeous Rebecca! I don't really have any dressy dresses as I'm such a scruff but I'd like to experiment with a more ladylike look, maybe wear posher frocks just for everyday wear and call everyone 'darrllingg' :)
    Not sure I should click that link, this site sounds dangerous!

    I love the fcuk dress. I think I'm lucky because I get all my fcuk from Winners for under $25 (whenever I find it) or from the sample rack at their one store. Cheap just how I like it....

  74. I'm on Gilt groupe and Gilt Fuse window shopping every morning too! I have made 3 purchases so far... and I'm very happy with them all! It's crazy how quickly things sell out though... you really have to impulse buy when you go on their site!
