style: flash of color

January 31st, 2011

This dress was one of the first style posts I put up on Sugarlaws, over a year ago now!  After a streak of unbearable dreariness in New York for the past few weeks, I figured that it was time to add some serious color to my wardrobe. 

I absolutely love this dress, and I’ve been searching for another excuse to wear it — it’s just a little bit to dressy for our regular nights out, and it’s been a while since I’ve had a really perfect occasion for it.  I’m also at the end of my rope trying to think of cute ideas for February Fashion Week outfits — between the snow, the cold and the ever-present slush everywhere in NYC, I’m seriously lacking in cute ideas.  This outfit would be perfect for a night show or an afterparty, but how do I get there? 

I’m also going to experiment more with taking photos inside our apartment, just to spare myself from the brutal cold!  Although, I should admit that this is Chad’s dresser, not mine — mine is covered in makeup, magazines, random books that I’ve read the first chapters of and meant to turn back to, and four different decorative baskets full of costume jewelry.  It’s not a pretty sight.

    what a perfectly fabulous mod dress!
    Love it- the color is great on you:)

    Working for Nicole Miller for over 6 years in Philly- I used to attend all her shows….it was always a challenge figuring out how to look fabulous in Feb….it was always either raining…or snow was on the ground limiting the shoe situation.
    Feel your pain girl!
    Have fun at fashion week!

    Love the bright color of this dress! I’ve also been craving color lately and this past weekend settled for a bright new red lipstick instead (love it, I got Chanel Rouge Allure in Flamboyante).

    I have the same problem. So many nice dresses, no reason to wear them!
    I absolutely love the color of that dress and the sleeves are amazing!
    You have the cutest dog ever. Looks like the dog I had almost all my life.

    Such a cute dress! I reminds me of a shirt I got recently.

    Hope you’re surviving the NY cold! That’s the one thing I don’t miss about the city…
