look book: i don't like mondays

November 30, 2010

I am dying over this dress! I love how it's a simple design and yet it has such unique features. Like the back zipper, the pockets, the detail that goes from front to back and the thick stretchy material. I'll admit it makes me feel a little bit like a bad-ass haha. I decided to make my hair uber-feminine with a teased updo, a modern take inspired by the one and only Audrey. Thank you so much to I Don't Like Mondays for sending me this awesome dress! Their shop has the coolest stuff so go check it out!
dress T by Alexander Wang c/o I Don't Like Mondays, necklaces Forever 21, spiky ring Marc Jacobs, socks, Nordstrom Rack, shoes Mary Kyri, jacket Madewell, lipstick Lancome Code Red

It's so hard adjusting after a nice long holiday weekend! I also have to remind myself that it's still November, even if just for another day. I have a ton of stuff to do in the next couple weeks but I'm so excited the holiday season is finally here. It seems like everyone is just bubbling with joy and I think that's pretty great!

Update: I Don't Like Mondays is offering an incredible 30% off all full priced Alexander Wang items, including Men's. The code is MLOVESM and it's good  through December 7th!

  27. What a witty clothing store name :)

    I loved the piled on jewelry look--a great way to use the vintage necklaces that my grandmother gave me.

    I am so envious of girl's that can wear the piled high bun look. With my short hair it just doesn't work.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a lovely look and FUN hair!!! I must try something like this although my bun would be about 1/4 the size with my fine hair! :)

  81. Wow. Really. Perfect. Am especially drooling over that necklace and am in awe of that hairdo!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Accessories do really make a lot of difference in an outfit! I should probably invest in different designs and color because my clothes are usually plain looking :|

    --you know this already but I'll say it over and over again, you look pretty and fabulous :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. My favorite outfit of yours to date!! The lips are the perfect topper... and I can't believe those necklaces are F21. So luxurious. You're gorgeous, Mara! :D
