black + purple

When you love designers as much as I do, you understand the rush of sifting through racks of newly attained items in a store. Your heartbeat increases as you thumb through beautiful rows of fabric and pick out your favorites. Then your mind gets away from you as it is flooded with delusional images of you wearing said pricy item at various places in time. You might as well drive a stake through your heart while you trot towards the fitting room knowing that alas, you will leave empty-handed. That these lovely clothes will hang in that store tonight, not in your closet.

But sometimes, a shopper must be optimistic, which is how I felt when finding this Phillip Lim number. I had tried it a few times against my better judgement (and my happiness) but again, the sky-high prices kept it at the store. I would visit it from time to time like an old friend, still loving the muted pattern, the shades of pretty purple, and the genius way it fell on the body. But one day, the heavens opened up, and it was affordable for yours truly. I guess patience really does pay off.




I decided to throw on a dramatic dark lip with this dress, a pair of tweed booties, and a hat I secretly stole from my brother's closet (oops!). I must say I really am a fan of deep dark purple lips (I am wearing Revlon Va Va violet) I had my little bun Max help me out with the pictures; he is as photogenic as this dress is!

Hope you love it as much as I do :)
