You Sit Too Long Alone

I just bought myself this lovely little blue dress and decided I had to granny-fy it. Or basically take a pretty dress and destroy some of the obvious beauty with things an old lady might wear. The orange coat also seemed so necessary as this color combination felt very Jonathan Saunders F/W 2011 to me. The coat is also new-to-me and I'm quite excited about it's color and shape. Warmer weather might be on the horizon and while I'm very excited to shed my winter layers, for some reason I'm still feeling very drawn to pretty coats.

  5. Love that dress! It would be ideal for a summer evening spent bird watching with my father-in-law. Maybe it would even disguise me enough for the birds to allow me to get close enough for a decent photo?

  9. Wow! The cut of the dress is so very alluring.

    Yet, of course, while you must have done your utmost to grannie-fy it, I think you were an utter failure, darling! :) You look so organic, spring-like and charming. You just need a bit of lace, really.

    The coat is gorgeous. Very in with a lot of the trends I'm seeing out of Asia, but with the American flare for color.

    Gorgeous.

  34. Nice coat! I used to have a similar one, but my boyfriend hated it and called it my "Elmo jacket". Eventually I donated it to a charity shop to appease him. I'd recently thrown away one his old, gross hoodies, so it was only fair.
