I fell in love with this Oscar de la Renta dress today on Net-a-Porter. Maybe some event I have coming up warrants wearing a taffeta coat-dress . . . Let's see what iCal has in store . . . my high school reunion? a rock show at Le Poisson Rouge? my company's holiday party? Damn it . . .
It's way out of my price range ($1790!), but I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled for this silhouette. And pockets! Pockets will always change my opinion of a dress from "eh" to "hell yeah."
The dress also immediately reminded me of these fashion illustration note cards my mom bought for me a while back— so elegant and retro (and maybe because they're done in blue...)
