Dress? French Connection sample (here) Boots? Ash (similar here w/o studs) Clutch? Gucci, thrifted (wheee!) Earrings? Vintage, gift from my parents Nails? Bahama Mama by Essie (here)
In general, I am a big fan of most French Connection stuff; especially when Winners (T. J. Maxx) gets a big shipment and prices most of it for $19.99. Even better is the sample rack at the front of the French Connection store in Vaughn Mills. Clothing samples are fun! The designs are sometimes a bit wackier, the prices are great and it's a link from the design process that many people never really think about. Most items on the sample rack at French Connection are usually marked as a size 10 but it's a little like a thrift store in that sense, because the fit goes from quite tiny to rather roomy. I saw this dress on the sample rack and wholly approved of it's short hem, long sleeves, tiny shoulder pads and swingy shape. Best of all, the fit was just right; like Cinderella's shoe... though thankfully, no prince was included with purchase.
