All of a sudden this week, temperatures started spiking up into the 80s, and I ended up having to root around my closet in the mornings before work looking for lighter clothes to wear. I found this dress on super sale a month or so ago at Nordstrom, but wasn’t planning on wearing it until fall with jackets over it to tone down the pattern. I love a good leopard print but I feared that that red + leopard + over an entire dress might be pushing things dangerously into Peg Bundy territory.
I tried on the dress alone earlier this week though and surprisingly liked it quite a bit! It’s silk so super comfortable and breezy. I have two Equipment dresses (the other is here) and I love them both.
I’ve probably mentioned it before but I have to say again that this Chanel bag was the very first Chanel item I ever bought (at the Madison shop in 2002) and this year marks its ten year anniversary! It’s lasted such a long time through some very adverse conditions (it was my go to “party” bag in college…just saying) and is still in great shape. Long live Chanel!
