Dress: Ganni from Anthropologie
Headband: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: thrifted Naturalizer
After avoiding purchasing any new clothing for about three months, I snapped at Anthropologie a couple weekends ago and bought this ponte knit dress. It was on sale. But not inexpensive. However, it’s a perfect royal blue color, it’s machine washable, it has a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette...and it has sleeves! Why is it so hard to find dresses with sleeves? Do those little scraps of fabric really add so much to the production cost of a garment? If I’m going to wear a dress, I don’t want to HAVE to pair it with a cardigan for the office, thanks. Not that I can’t bare my arms at work, but I don’t like to.
Anyway, I guess the name of this post is appropriate after all that rambling. Oh, and for once you might still be able to buy what I’m wearing on my blog in-store. Apparently Anthropologie still has the green and black versions of this dress left on their website, too, in size medium, although the product detail page for the dress doesn’t show up when you’re browsing their sale section. Weird.
