I love the texture of the dress! Especially the deep v back. Nice combo with the black. Such a great fall look!

I love how you've kept the back of the dress open instead of covering it with the shirt. It gives it a little something extra!

So pretty. Thanks for showing me how to properly pull off a beret. I bought one and have been quite confused, hah.

This dress is breathtaking!! It almost looks tweed... and that's really what I've been searching for lately... now I'm on an even more desperate hunt!

OOh - I love that fabric, and yes it does have a tweed like quality - a slightly dark mood in the photos, very atmospheric. Love the whole deal.

I love the dress. I also love how you don't dress entirely in vintage. Those modern shoes make the outfit that much better.

Alice said...

aww so cute!

I love that last photo with you peeking over your shoulder.


blessings,
Alice

I love these photos, they look like movie stills. I'd have to echo the love for the bare low back contrast. Lovely as usual!

The fitting of the dress is perfect! I bought a dress a lot like this in Pop Boutique, and it just looks like it was tailored to fit me. I love it!

That dress is a real beauty - lovely photos too.

Just wanted to let you know that I linked you on my blog as it was through one of your posts a while back that I discovered Betty Magazine which I absolutely love. I've written a feature on it on my latest blog post, should you wish to take a look -

I love this outfit - though I must admit I'm a little jealous that you actually get to dress like it's fall. It is so hot in LA at the moment :(
