Another White shirt!

My big birthday present to me(beside the Nanette Lepore blouse) was this amazing linen tux"dress" by CP Shades and a pair of "they're so ugly I Love them" clogs by Swedish Hasbeens. This is what the "dress", as they are calling it, was supposed to look like(see above pic). But on me it seemed a bit short and has two deep, deep side slits! I guess I could wear it as a dress like they show on the Calypso St Barth's web site but it will take some searching for the right slip.

So I paired it with jeans and the Hasbeens clogs.

I know, I know, I need another new white shirt like I need a whole in my head, but in my defence it was supposed to be a dress! The side slits did prove to give it a different spin(on the white shirt) by tying one side in a knot. Hmmm, this shirt/dress is turing out to be a pretty good and versatile mistake...All in all I decided to keep it because I am obsessed with linen and white shirts and they are always a safe investment. This one has a wonderful rumpled weathered feel.

I have a feeling you will be seeing more of this Swedish company. SJP already has been seen wearing a couple of their shoes around NY.

It was a very dark and stormy day but I didn't notice because my new vintage ebay boots were waiting on my porch when I got home today and they fit like a glove! You never know when you buy vintage shoes because they were sized smaller back then so Its a gamble.

Ok, I would never wear this out but I wanted to show how great these boots are. This is cutest pair of jean shorts from Lucky Brand. they have patches on the front and back and the perfect faded wash but I think they are just a bit to short for my comfort level.

This is the most expensive(Nanette Lepore 295.00 nordstroms) blouse I have ever owned and I am still not sure why this cost so much-more than or as much as the Nanette Lepore dresses!My husband nearly shit his pants when I told him what he bought me for my birthday! It just fit and felt so right! A definite investment piece but one that I will reach for over and over again. I wore it out to dinner for my birthday with skinny jeans and frye heels. I would even wear it with cut-offs.
