Oldies and a Newbie

August 13, 2012

Dress: via Ideeli
Bag:J-Crew “Edie Grand”
Blazer: Elizabeth and James
Shoes:Dolce and Gabanna
Sunglasses:Emporio Armani

This little black dress is one of many dresses I snagged from Ideeli when I was an Ideeli addict back when it first got on the scene. I had to get it altered to get the fit I wanted. The shoes are from more than five years ago when I had just graduated college and on my first post college job. The majority of what I am wearing are oldies from the back of my close. I mentioned last week how I was anticipating the arrival of my J-Crew Edie Grand bag. It’s the newbie on this outfit and I am fairly happy with it. Makes for a nice work bag.

Wishing you all a pleasant start to the week. I know Monday’s are a little rough for most people. If only weekends were three days long.
