fashionable kindness

January 27th, 2012

I took these at about 8 a.m. on my way to work the other day, so please excuse the bleary sleepy eyes.

I tried on this dress way back in September and came really close to buying it, but I held out (it was full price) and managed to find it on sale for 40 or 50 percent off on the Kate Spade website two days after Christmas.  I’d almost resigned myself to living without it, so I was pretty psyched to find it in my size so heavily on sale.  It’s conservative enough for work, but still incredibly fun — it’s pretty rare to actually find a great work-to-play dress, but I think this one actually manages it.

I’m thinking of getting the hem shortened a little bit, what do you guys think?  I’ve found a great tailor here (Nick Lopez, if any of you live in Houston) and it’s amazing how much a little nip and snip can turn a good dress to great.

And if you’re wondering about the title of the post, this Rachel Roy clutch is part of her Kindness is Always Fashionable (I agree!) line, and 100% of the proceeds go towards relief efforts for victims of natural disasters.  I love pieces that, in addition to being really beautiful, actually make me feel good about carrying them.

Kate Spade dress (still on sale!), gifted Rachel Roy Ghana clutch, Forever 21 bracelet, gifted Payless shoes.
