i purchased this dress early last fall at an end-of-season sale at Ludivine in NYC. the weather turned cooler soon after so this spring was the first time i was actually able to wear it!

(Vanessa Bruno dress; Juicy Couture heels; vintage necklace from Greenflea Market/NYC)

it's a good thing all of my clothes - fall/winter and spring/summer - fit in one closet otherwise i would be completely lost when the weather gods can't make up their minds!

  1. I kind of love it! I got sunburned (whoops) yesterday, when it was raining three days ago. I've also noticed this kind of schizophrenic weather has drastically affected the way that I buy clothes - I really don't distinguish between summer and winter pieces all that much.

    Anyway, two great looks. I am especially drawn to the poncho and the HL shirt.

  2. I LOVE Ludivine! I lived close by, on Jones St. and god, they always stocked such beautiful clothes. That dress is stunning and I've always been a fan of that coralish-salmon color. So flattering.

  3. Great necklace... every time you feature it I love it more and more. The Bruno dress looks terrific on you.

  4. I can't decide which look I prefer. I adore your all black getup. Great helmut top. But the summery dress is so nice, too. I love those shoes.

  6. working on squeezing all of my clothing into one closet, lol.
    i also love the rather psychotic weather we've been having; i've been able to combine a lot of items i was unable to wear in the past due to lack of inspiration/very sharp temperature rises/drops.
    beautiful dress and necklace. always love the cuts of your trousers. :)

  9. You see to have so many clothes, maybe that's just good re-mixing! I'd love to see how big this one closet is!

    On a separate note, you mentioned struggling to find style blogs whose style you like, I thought you'd appreciate this one http://the-limbo-of-vanity.tumblr.com/

  11. In the second outfit shapes of the dress and necklace are stunning. I also like how that outfit is completely different from the other two.

  12. Both outfits are great but I love love love the coral dress. It's just been straight up cold here this spring. But that's always how it is. We don't ever get warm weather until June.

  13. Crap that Helmut Lang shirt is good stuff. It reminds me of Dion Lee's first collection.

  14. i love the contrast between these two looks! i really like the arm cut-outs on the sleeves in the first outfit. and the necklace in the 2nd is so gorgeous- i love the combo of coral and yellow gold. ~joelle

  18. I was going through my fashion scans, and it just occured to me that your HL top is a button down version of this helmut lang from 98, except she's only wearing the sleeves half way. What a cool find!!
