Just a quick OOTD!

I've been pretty busy these past two days, which makes for bad blogging but a fast week. Thought I'd post a quick OOTD because I am in love with this dress and would like to wear it like, every day. (oh and FINALLY Dallas isn't an arctic tundra, thank you lordie.)

Dress: BR rosette dress
Cardi: LINE ruffle cardigan (same brand here) (and long sleeve version here)
Belt: tried and true Rodarte for Target
Earrings: Epic Apparel stained glass leaf earrings (these are neato)
Leggings: Nordstrom HUE
Shoes: Sam Edelman metallic flats (updated version here)

I scored this Banana Republic rosette dress on sale for around $35, which I thought was a great deal. When I saw it on the rack, I thought the color was so pretty (gorgeous Merlot) but when I tried it on, it was even more heavenly. I can't wait to wear this baby for next fall, when I can do it real justice and wear it without a cardigan. The color may not be good for Spring/Summer, but knowing me, I'll find a way to sneak it into my wardrobe. Oh, and best thing? I spilled a little Cab Sauv on it last Saturday and you'd never know. Bitchin.


  1. Wow-what a score!
    I love it and the color does you justice!
    And no visible wine stains?

  2. Awesome score! I also have that dress, and you're now reminding me that I need to wear it more. It is heavenly, huh!

  3. I know! if it wasn't enough that it was pretty, it hides my mistakes! Perfect!

  4. Oh yes yes, it's just so pretty. Better in person, even!
