The green autumnal parks conducting

Listening to: "Poses," Rufus Wainwright.
Dress: Ann Taylor Loft;
Sweater: Faded Glory;
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft;
Shell necklaces: Oahu, HI;
Jade bracelet: Finder's Keepers;
Bag; Vintage, thrifted.
How I've worn the dress before: here.
How I've worn the bag before: here.

I'm pretty sure I've accidentally stumbled into Eden. This park is insanely pretty and we still have tons of exploring to do.

About this outfit. You can take the girl out of the dress, but you can't take the dressing up out of the girl. It's been four days since the Project ended and I'm back to my old ways. This is Dress #5 from The Dress Project. I decided to go with opposite colors today to make the dress stand out a little more. I added a bag I thrifted back in high school and still adore. And my new heels make me four inches taller! I felt pretty great about this outfit combination.

I cannot stop playing Rufus Wainwright songs in the car this week. He was my favorite artist back in high school, and now re-listening to his lyrics, I feel like I'm reinterpreting what they mean. Do you ever do that with old music favorites?

Happy Wednesday,

signature1 by you.


  1. I love the background! All your photos look great! It is some kind of Eden Your bright cardi makes me want the summer so bad. But it's raining and cold here in San Francisco.

    I <3 Rufus. I got to see him several years ago, and at the end, he came out in a bathrobe, and undressed and started doing a Judy Garland number with dancing men. For one song, he sang without a mic unaccompanied. That man has some serious pipes.

  2. What a gorgeous park! The dress is pretty lovely, too!

    I just realized you weren't on our blogroll, so I just added you.

  3. Love the purse! Great thrift find!

  4. Oooh, I really like the sandals! I've been wanting one new pair of summer sandals to update my shoe collection. Those are a pretty great option.

    And thanks so much for your comments on my Jeopardy post. :-) You should totally try out sometime! It was an amazing time.

  5. cute look! i love the belted cardi and purse! :)

  6. Amazing shoes!
    That far away bridge shot is stunning.

  7. I adore those heels, lady. ADORE!

  8. Beautiful!! Love that purse..what an incredible find!


  9. I definitely do the "re-visiting old music" thing. I think that's the best kind of music -- the kind you can listen to again years later and get a whole new meaning from. It shows that the songs have a staying/growing power.

    Your dress is wonderful, and just because the dress project is over doesn't mean that you should stop wearing dresses! Especially since you look so adorable!

  10. Hmmm, I have never been much of a cross-body bag girl, but there is something about the size and placement of yours that is super flattering and amazing. I may have to go on the hunt for one that flatters me this way.

  11. This whole outfit is really cute. And way to find a really cool backdrop! Jealous...

  12. Isn't it fun to find nice little Edens? Love that red sweater!

  13. One of my favorite Rufus songs ever! I just downloaded his new album and cannot stop listening to it. I love that you love him!

    And I love this look - the bright cardi over the printed dress is wonderful. And those shoes! Love!

  14. Cute shoes! I wish I could successfully belt over a wrapped cardigan like that, it never stays put on me!
