Sunday'sBest

Downtown LA

Dresses are are the greatest invention EVER. I mean really, who has time to decide what pants go with whatever blouse?? Just throw on a dress and focus on the bag&shoes.

Take a tip from the lovely above. Typically, an 80's church dress will look absolutely frightening on a hanger...dated, tacky, ug. BUT with the right stuff (hair,shoes,bag) the dress can take on a whole new life. That duffel and those ankle boots have my heart.

CC side note: If you're in LA you must check out the Downtown Art Walk. It happens every 2nd Thursday of the month. Freeee wine, fantastic ART, walking, talking, hipster watching, hot dogs, me, music...

So true - I think I'm nearly over wearing trousers, somehow it always looks wrong or makes you feel a bit out of sorts!

Cute dress, I love the print and the colours! I don't think I would've thought to pair it with those ankle boots but it works very well on her!

I agree with you: Dresses are the best invention ever!
I love the way she pulls off that dress. I admit, I would avoid it if I saw it on a hanger, but on her it's cool!
