penelope strikes again

And in the spirit of borrowing from Penelope, here's another number inspired by my darling dress form gal! The volume of this skirt with the rest of the jacket made the proportions of this outfit rather fun, like I had to prance around while wearing it. I love feeling frilly sometimes. Who doesn't?

Went to San Francisco's Fashion's Night Out last night with my friend, Meghan, and had an incredible time! Only downside, I found the most beautiful pair of leather shorts, just a little out of my price range. Where you ask? I'm not telling! I hid them purposefully in the store so I could sneak back and visit/purchase/whisper sweet nothings to them.

Sigh.

Dress: Full tulle skirt dress, Target
Jacket: Sheer watercolor print trench coat, Rachel Roy
Shoes: Black strappy Michael Kors heels, (via Marshalls!)

  1. I love that you named your dress form...hilarity! Looking for a pair of leather shorts as well and I think I found my pair and did the exact same thing...hope we're not coveting/visiting the same pair of shorts...hehehe. Went to fashion week in NY and it was great!

  9. I totally know what you mean about wearing something that alters how you move about (in a good way, not a restricted-corset way). I think you just inspired my Monday outfit. I have a feeling I'll want to prance around to improve my Monday mood. When I see that much color the words that pop in my head are usually 'silly' or 'fun' and yet with this outfit I thought 'elegant' first because of the way you balanced the color with the black. Go get those shorts! You deserve it!
