Rad House

 So I went to Toronto last week to do bloggy-blog stuff and stumbled upon the most utterly perfect, life-defining dress at Zara. I couldn't afford it but OOPS had to buy it anyway, because it is literally everything I have ever wanted in a dress.
 You get to look at two picture of me and my silly new haircut just because I love this dress so much. I've been wearing it with my H&M cropped cardigan sweater which I basically wear every day because the cut is great and it has elbow patches. I've always been a huge sucker for elbow patches even though that's never been reflected in my wardrobe before.
Also, a huge thank you to the Houndstooth Bunny for drawing such a cute picture of me wearing this outfit! Its super cute and I love it and I hope you keep drawing!

buying things I can't afford is my favorite hobby. don't sweat it, it's really a gorgeous cut.

That cardigan is brilliance at it's finest. elbow pads must have some sort of pull in them...they attract me as well.

Ack your so adorable - the hair cut with the 'smart' dress is so perfect. Ah did you interview in Toronto? Can't wait to hear more.

I love the leather elbow patches on the sweater. Makes the little black dress more hip, and dare I say 'edgy'.

'Life defining' made me laugh, but it is a very wonderful dress!

Bloggy-blog stuff? DO TELL US MORE.
Elbow embellishments are a brilliant conception--I'm glad we share this paradigm.

oh don't feel bad, I just spent an obscene amount of money on shoes and sunglasses at the prada on bloor. i just pretend one of the zeros in the total doesn't exist and i can sleep soundly. the cut+fabric of this dress are gorgeous, i've been looking for something like this. hope to hear more about the interview!

I agree. That dress is perfect. You won't regret the purchase.

Louise said...

That is really the perfect black dress.

Oh, elbow pads, I'm still searching for a blazer that has them and is wearable by a roundish woman. :)

The dress is perfect, you're right!
And your new haircut is great!
