Isn’t it interesting how trends recycle? Take this dress from the 50s. It has these great knife pleats, which were on trend again for Spring this year. http://www.polyvore.com/spring_2012_best_shapes_knife/set?id=44130788
The neckline and buttons on the dress make a necklace impossible, at least as far as I can see. Instead, I’m wearing an awesome bangle from StyledLife, an ancient jeans belt from Ann Taylor (a place I don’t think I have set foot in in over 10 years), and my favorite Marni sandals, which I bought in NYC years ago during a weekend break for a trial in Connecticut. I love a sturdy high heel.
A word about the location for today’s and yesterday’s photos. As the photographer for both pics remarked today, “There’s a lot going on.” And she wasn’t talking about the dress. All I can say is never trust a lawyer with a clean office. And a nod to an awesome French guy (is there any other kind of French guy?), Eric Ripert, who graces my PC in the background.
