|I pretty much live in the JC Lanas.|
I know this dress was one of the hotter items but I actually had no interest in it when I walked into Target. I let everyone else grab it and went straight for the trench. I've been looking for a decent trench in a color other than beige or black for about two years now. But I was also looking for the canvas skirt in belize blue and this dress was just sitting there waiting for me when I finally found the canvas skirt. I figured I'd buy it and do a giveaway or something but, when Hubbs saw it on me, he told me I had to keep it. So that's the story of me owning THE dress.
I got the Schlesinger briefcase at an estate sale on the north shore. It called to me across a crowded room and I came a running. It's one of those perfectly perfect keep forever no matter how beat up it gets kinds of things.
The dress has a vaguely gothic lolita feel to me so it seemed natural to pair it with this blouse I got off the EGL community a few years ago. Shortly after I took these photos, rain poured from the sky. Good timing.
Wearing: poplin dress by Jason Wu for Target; briefcase by Schlesinger from an estate sale; bow blouse from the Livejournal EGL Sales Community; boots by Jeffrey Campbell from Karmaloop; carved wood bangles from tag sales.
