look book: fading light

July 9, 2012

There's something so perfect about a little back dress. I have a few in my closet, but this one with the swiss dots and pretty pleating is a favorite. I decided to keep the accessories simple and gold, and wear a pair of purple heels that are high yet very comfortable.
dress c/o Lalamagic, belt vintage, cuff  Karen London {in rose gold}, shoes Nine West

Forgive me in advance if my posts are a little sporadic this week. Matthew and I are up to our necks in boxes {literally!} as we're getting ready for our big move this weekend. The computer will be the last to go so I'll try to post when I can. Promise :)

I hope you all had a great weekend!
