Miu Miu and Me

A short while ago on Chictopia, I won a gift card to Forever 21. This immediately led to trolling the F21 website and exhaustive mental debate over what to order. As soon as I saw this dress, one item was decided. The dainty, whimsical print of unicorns, bunnies, cats, and some strange creature wearing a hat was not only too sweet to pass up, but distinctly reminiscent of the most recent Miu Miu runway. Knock-off, "inspired by," or whatever, I really felt a need for this dress in my closet...

  2. Your hair looks absolutely beautiful. I'm trying to grow my hair out, can't wait til it gets that long. That dress is whimsical. I don't think F21 is all that great but they do have some really cute things at times.

  7. Wow, wherever you are in these pictures is GORGEOUS. I've been dying to steal away to somewhere a bit more remote, preferably with a lake and lots of trees, and that looks like just the place. I'm stuck doing homework in a busy college town and totally envious right now.

  17. Wow I really love that dress on you! It looks so cool, and the print is awesome! I still can't get over how gorgeous the scenery and background is over where you are! I love how the lake reflects the sky and the trees in the back! You take such fantastic pictures :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. You take such AMAZING photos; these are truly beautiful. PLUS I love the outfit! The dress and tights: great colour combo! I am so inspired! I would love to do some really great fashion posts. I am thinking I might designate Fridays "fashion Fridays" (you totally being my inspiration). Only, I may have to have a baby in all my photos (what else to do with him?;-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. miu miu collection was great, as always, cant wait to draw them!! and your take on it is very spot on.

  20. i saw that dress too and immediately fell in love. it didn't fit right, though, and i was heartbroken. i'm glad its cuteness worked for someone!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the dress, but more importantly I love the photography of this post. That picture of you sitting by the lake is beyond words. Incredibly artistry.

  22. What an adorable dress! So perfectly you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Echoing other comments on your shots: beautiful and arty. Funster print dress and I'm especially envious of your shoes-great 2nd hand find!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i like that you dont shy away from "cute" prints just because you're petite ... i know you've written about "looking your age" before ... i just love that you have fun with fashion.

    ReplyDelete
  25. OMG!!! Can you believe it? I am wearing the same dress while reading this post in my school's library!!!!! This is amazing! I think of Cassie from Skins when I first saw this dress, so I had to take this baby home with me! This post is so inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hhhmm...I'm in a similar situation. I won a certificate, and that dress weirdly attracted me. It's cute, sweet, whimsical, and totally not me! But I'm weirdly attracted to it. The dress looks great on you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh what a great choice, i LOVE this & would totally wear it too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think you've picked the perfect dress! It suits you down to a tee. I love the location of your photos, it looks like a gorgeous place to visit. :)

  33. What a beautiful dress! I want it! and your photo are always soo beautiful! love your long legs!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh. My. God. The second to last and fifth to last are absolutely amazing. I love how you can't tell if it's the sky or the lake at first glance that you're dipping your feet into. Wow, really stunning. And that first photo of you reminds me of Thoreau's Walden Pond. The way each part of the landscape just goes into one another so seemlessly...I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That dress is just adorable! And it is quite reminiscent of Miu Miu. What a great find!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh it is similar, very sweet look.

    ReplyDelete
  37. it's so you! i doubt f21 has the lead times to produce a knockoff so quickly so you can say you are well ahead of the trends! and wow the reflections of the clouds on the lake are breaktaking!

    ReplyDelete

  45. Gar, I was so tempted to buy this dress a while ago on the F21 website and now you're just making me completely regret it! I don't think it's available in my size anymore, g-darn it.

    You, though, look so lovely in it! And that beautiful setting is just well...gorgeous. The reflection in the lake takes my breath away.

    ReplyDelete

    PS: I agree with the 50-50 on Ellen von Unwerth I noticed it wasn't that easy to find pictures from this book that were a little uncomfortable but the good ones are SO good. quelle dilemma!

  87. It has your name all over it! It's a good thing you searched. And actually it reminds me of a vintage blouse that was my mother's in the 70's. So I wouldn't call it a knock-off, it looks more vintage-inspired to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
