Daily Outfit: 10/4/10

Patterned shirt dress, thrifted

Lavender dress, Athleta
Brown boots, Coclico via eBay
Bracelets, Bibelot
Necklace, thrifted

This outfit saw a lot of excitement today. It was with me when I found out that, indeed, our washing machine is totally and completely broken and we must buy a new one. It was with me when I ate my first-of-the-fall pumpkin cookie with maple frosting. It was with me when I got my chimney swept for the first time in 8 years. (That sounds naughty, but it’s not – our house needed its chimney swept!)

And it’s going with me right now to meet a very special bloggy friend. EEEEEEEEEEEE!

    Work With What You've Got: Oh E, I'll have to mail you one. They're from a local deli chain called D'Amico & Sons. They only sell them for a couple of months out of the year, and the entire Twin Cities area rejoices!

    love the shirt dress layered over the athleta dress and the colours are wonderful, and I love the way you are posing,

    i tried to order the athleta dress a couple of months ago, but they don't ship to Canada ;(

    i am in awe of you shoe/boot collection and on the whole you inspire me.

  • FashionTheorist

    I love the autumny mix of colors you've got going on here. Purple, orange and brown are some of my favorite fall hues!

  • jilly

    I love the idea of using a shirt dress as a coat or long cardigan! And the colors compliment you so well. I will have to try this out.

  • Sara

    I love this look, Sal! That shirtdress works as the perfect topper – I've done that with my shirtdress and it's become one of my favorite ways to wear it. I adore the play of purples. You look stunning!

  • Stephanie

    This is what perfection is. Love it to death! My favorite outfit!

  • Between Laundry Days

    Ooh, hope you had a ball with Winona!! She's so fantastic.

    And I think I recognize that fabulous shirt-dress! It looks phenomenal!
