The poppy dress



I was roaming around Le Bon Marché a few Paris visits ago having no luck finding anything I wanted in my size. I had just about given up but stopped by the Stella McCartney section to have a look. You know me and how I am mostly allergic to print and color, but something came over me and I found myself attracted to this dress and the idea of wanting to dress more my age (whatever that means). I had immediate buyer's remorse but couldn't bring myself to walk back to the counter to return it. So I kept the darn thing even though it's nowhere near seasonally appropriate at the moment in NY. I took the opportunity to wear it in Hong Kong and the lush greens there made a nice backdrop for it.

  5. i think i know what you mean by wanting to dress your age. sometimes i think i dress too much like someone 20-30 years older than i am (in fact my boss recently asked if i was in mourning, with all the oversized black getups lately). but really, i've always thought older ladies have better style anyway. they seem more comfortable, and like they're having more fun. :)
