Daily Outfit: 8/18/11

Already Pretty Daily Outfit 8/18/11 featuring white All Saints dress

White dress – AllSaints Adityasimilar style/budget option
Scarf, Desigual (no longer available)  – more Desigual
Sandals, Marni via yoox.com (no longer available) – similar color/shape
Earrings, courtesy Bionic Unicorn

OK, I’ll admit to throwing on this jacket for part of the work day. This outfit was planned with the evening’s activities in mind – a charity event starting at 6 p.m., to which I’m dragging the lovely Christina. And since there will be a “most awesome shoes” competition, I just HAD to haul out the Marnis.

A fancy-pants evening event also gave me the opportunity to debut this dress, which was purchased in New York back in February. That’s right, this floaty, white, cotton summer dress was for sale in the dead of winter. Which is just plain silly if you ask me.

HM took some really lovely shots of this ensemble, so a few more images than usual. Including this one that shows my beloved Desigual scarf in its full, multicolored glory.

  • Very Marilyn-esque!

  • Love, love, love this dress!

  • Mia

    Sal! Oh, be still my heart, this whole look is breathtaking. I swear, I’m not being melodramatic. I know without even looking that All Saints is way out of my budget, but I’m glad you have this dress so that we can visually enjoy it! Absolutely stunning. Let us know how the shoe competition turns out! If you don’t win, I’d like to see who does.

  • Amy

    Oh, SAL. Beyond gorgeous. From the collar of the dress to the amazing scarf, this one is just perfection.

  • AK

    Long-time reader, but pretty sure this is the first time I’ve commented — just to say that the high collar on this dress is FABULOUS with your new haircut. Really, seriously, chic. Wow!

  • Yikes, Sal, you’re a magazine cover! What a beautiful dress (and you). Hope your shoes win all the prizes : >

  • I love this outfit, Sal! I especially love the scarf with the crisp white dress. Nicely done!

  • Terri

    WOW, that top photo is gorgeous, Sal!

  • I love the collar on this dress!! It is beautiful! What a great total look!!

  • That last shot is really awesome! I love this dress on you, Sal — you look amazing and dare I say, straight out of the Seven Year Itch. Just fabulous.

  • Love everything about this. I won’t lie, I lust after those shoes. And the scarf is gorgeous.

  • Beckee

    That dress looks fabulous on you! Your Marni’s complete the look!

  • Is it wrong that one of my major weight loss motivators is “so I can wear AllSaints”?

    You look marvelous. Have a gala gala.

    • Kristina

      I would find that highly motivating, myself. That dress is utterly fabulous. I love the neckline!

  • CJ

    Wowza. That’s all I have to say!

  • Sal + AllSaints (my favorite store ever) = instant brightness in my day! You look amazing!!

  • Sarah

    Oh my goodness Sal you look AMAZING!!!!!

  • Beautiful dress!

  • Oh, that dress!

  • Ooooh you look so gorgeous! That dress is so cute. I adore this combo! Hope you won with those fabulous sandals.

  • this dress is a revelation. I love interesting collars!

  • Courtney Landes

    I’m with AK–this dress is kinda perfect for showing off your new hair cut. Your previous style would have fought with the collar, and the dress would not have looked nearly as good on you as it does in that picture!

  • GinaMarie

    Truly lovely, Sal, I actually gasped when I saw the photos! I was just driving through Manhatten and saw the Desigual store. I thought of you! I also thought of leaving my kids in the car to go shopping….sadly that didn’t happen!

  • Kate K

    That entire look is just swoooon worthy! You look gorgeous Sal! That dress is just divine and I absolutely love how you accessorized it. And I swear your haircut makes it look about 10x chicer!

  • E.

    Loooove that scarf!

  • Leah

    This post made me grin wildly the moment the first part of your torso loaded, and then I scrolled down and saw the shoes. What a great combination, and it’s clear you love it too from how happy you look in the pictures.

  • Cat

    You look like the super-woman you are in the last photo.
    If/When you write a book – that should be on the back cover.
    Love!

  • This dress is very lovely on you! And the scarf is so bright and fun!

  • C’estChic!

    Shall I make it unanimous?!? You look stunning in this outfit, and I truly think it’s your beautiful new hairstyle that has taken the look to the next level! Ooh la-la!!!

  • That dress is amazing, and it looks beautiful on you!

  • D

    That scarf! Fabulous!

  • Very summer chic! The scarf really takes it to another level.

  • This looks fantastic! I love the dress itself, and the colorful scarf paired with white is definitely inspiring me.

  • eek

    Va va va voom! You are killing it Sal! So sexy without even trying 🙂

  • Debbie

    I adore that dress. Just perfect for the summer season.

  • Cel

    Oh, love the photo with the scarf all opened up, it’s so pretty. Shame that most scarves spend their lives scrunched up. That is such a fantastic dress, too. And I will be surprised if your shoes do not win this competition.

  • Clarice

    The dress looks like it was made not just for you, but on you, and the accessories you paired it with echo its edgy femininity perfectly. I love the way All Saints designs manipulate fabric and you’ve showcased this one so well. And I agree with Cat that the last picture would make a great back cover image for “Already Pretty”, the book.

  • Tenshi

    What a stunning, stunning, stunning dress! It’s perfect!

  • Mel

    Could you possibly look any more stunning???!!!!!

    Even BETTER than the polka dot dress from yesterday!

  • Heather

    I haven’t commented before (something of a lurker) but this look is too gorgeous for words. I love how the layers of ruched, folded fabric frame your face and graceful neck with your new haircut!

  • What an outfit! The dress, the scarf (swoon) and the shoes are perfection.

  • OMG, that scarf is AMAZING!! Your white dress is perfect on you, and those shoes..oh my!! You look fabulous!

  • Oh, Sal! This is divine! I LOVE the collar of this dress with your earrings and short haircut. So chic and unique! And I’m dying to know who won the shoe contest!

  • Sal

    Thanks for your INCREDIBLY kind words, my friends! I’m sad to report that I didn’t even make the finals for the shoe contest. HM maintains that I was totally robbed. And he is not at all biased, of course.

  • I am lusting over that dress so hard right now!
    It is STUNNING.

  • marie

    That look suits you so well, I must say. I had to write. PERFECT for your new style direction.
    Personally, I would go a little longer though.
    But overall fantastic!

  • What a BEAUTIFUL outfit! That dress is super flattering and that last scarf picture is such a happy photo! xxx

  • pope suburban

    I tried on a dress like this a while back, and I was motivated to Google it because oh my God, I love these photos. Happy day, I found it! And I had to run over and share, because it was so comfortable and flattering; I think this is a dress that will look good on anyone: http://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/Elan-Womens-Cotton-Wrap-front-Bubble-hem-Dress/6013720/product.html

    • Sal

      Oh my gosh, great find! That’s amazingly similar.

      • pope suburban

        I thought it was the same dress when I first saw your pictures! I’m really happy to have found it again (The shop I found it in orders very small quantities, so they go out of stock super fast), and that it appears to be pretty easy to turn up. Love love love that style; it feels like pajamas but looks like a million bucks.

  • Robin

    I just wanted to say I have been reading your blog for months now and find it completely inspiring. You look absoluetly stunning in this outfit, I know you say you love color but white is gorgeous on you and the cut of the dress with that collar and your new hair… lovely, lovely! Happy Friday!

  • sara

  • Erica

    Love that dress on you!

  • – Tessa

    Soooo SASSYY!

  • Julie

    I literally gasped when I scrolled down. This is one of your best, ever.

  • That is quite possibly my favorite dress I have ever seen in my life.

  • Such a gorgeous dress! And what a fabulous scarf too!

  • Perfection!

  • Nadine

    So, so good! Love it.

  • WOW WOW WOW!! You, Sal, are just beautiful!!
