I like you, Maude.




Ombre Slipdress- Le Fou (Aritzia), Army Jacket- TNA (Aritzia), Taupe Suede Litas- Jeffrey Campbell, Studded Silver Cuff- Fallon, Rosary Necklace- Aldo, Ring- Free People

I really, really love the above slip dress. It fulfills every qualification on my deeply exacting Official Long Dress Checklist (that should be a joke, but it isn't). Just so you know. Anyway, I had quite the successful visit to Forever XI this afternoon- you know how the clothes on the mannequins are never, ever actually available? Well I purchased four things that were on mannequins (and really very cute). This was quite a step up for me, as my mother and I were almost forcibly removed (and given a hilariously stern lecture by a very serious employee) from our local F21 recently for taking a belt from a mannequin and attempting to buy it. I never did get that belt, and it was quite adorable. But I did complete my knits collection today (that's a lie- it will never be complete), and bought two lovely long skirts. So thanks, F21, you made up for the unpleasant Margaret and mom belt-buying fiasco by actually stocking the pieces on your mannequins (what a novel idea)! I suppose it's time to get back to the cheeseburger I have been neglecting while rambling about slip dresses and F21, so have a beautiful weekend everyone. By the way, the above photos were taken by the adorable and endlessly talented Courtney Teesdale.

  3. I love that slip dress.

    I had a similar situation with my mother buying hair extensions at Sally's Beauty supply- we grabbed them from behind the counter and were about to pay, when we were removed for grabbing them (as opposed to her getting them for us). Haaaaa. I can so see that happening in a Forever 21.

  5. That slip dress is lovely and really suits you. Why on earth would they not have what is on the mannequins? Isn't the whole point that their meant to sell whats in the shop?

    Silly silly people.
