Fab Found







dress: Free People via Marshall's c/o (similar)(similar)(similar) |  shoe: Steve Madden (old) | cropped trench coat: A.Wang ( similar by Club Monaco here & here) | bag: Marc Jacobs | sunglasses: RayBan | bracelets: David Yurman (7mm in onyx& pearl)
This dress was another gem found at Marshall's during my last shopping trip with Lani, Lissy, Jean and Bettina. Kudos to Lani for spotting it and generously handing it over to me. It was only available in a medium and even knowing major work was required, I took a chance on it anyway. The day spent on alterations was well worth the effort because I've been wearing it nonstop. I paired it with sandals to run errands and heels to dinner. Easy breezy! The fabric is on the heavy side, great for spring and fall but perhaps not ideal for summer.
