Stars in my eyes.
This past weekend, the weather was finally finally finally nice enough to do a proper outfit post without freezing! This is what I wore for a lovely, perfect day walking, estate saling, dining, and gallery-going with my cute husband.
I bought this dress a couple of months ago from Lauren of Dear Golden, who very kindly answered a flurry of excited questions and put it on reserve for me after I saw a preview in one of her tweets. It's done up in a gorgeously sumptuous wool crepe (perfect for spring/fall transition weather), has pockets (yay!), and - best of all - is studded with teensy metal stars. They're not sewn on with no flimsy thread, either - the metal is studded right through the fabric. They're here to stay, and they mean business. It doesn't fit quiiiiiite right in the bust, but I'm kind of wearing it anyway. I mean, look at it. You would too.
Let's zoom in a little closer...
And how about even closer...
Yes, my friends. That is what perfection looks like.
