Not Your Rainy Day Dress


The rain has once again chased me inside, forcing me to show you my latest Ebay find in a less than optimal photographic setting. This silk Ralph Lauren dress fit like a glove right from the start, which is always a plus when you buy a dress having only seen it on the internet. I took an inch and a half off of the hem (well, the alterations guy did) so that it fell just above the knee, but other than that, no other changes necessary. I imagine that this dress is circa 1990-something based on the design, but I find it fits like a classic, and it is definitely well-made. Silk fabric (as well as a silk overlay and tie that makes up the halter bit), fully-lined, and super comfy, this one is a definite score.  Oh, and that's my tomato plant. If you listen closely, you can hear it whispering…feeeeeeed meeeeee...

    1. Oh GOLLY, I forgot to credit the shoes! these are Enzo Angiolini shoes I got at Marshalls back when I was in graduate school in upstate NY. I think I paid like $15 for them. They are super comfy, and I have worn them with EVERYTHING. I got my Master's diploma in these, have danced all night at weddings…they've been AROUND.

    1. I haven't, but there is not really that much to tell. I do something (a lot of varying things to keep the routine mixed-up) nearly every day; runningh, tennis, ballet-based barre classes for flexibility and strength... I have thought about a post in the past but thought maybe it would be boring for people to hear yet another "eat right and exercise" mantra. I am also vegan (with the exception of the odd piece of fish when travelling and there is just no other option), so I suppose that helps as well.

  7. Beautiful dress, Kristin! Perfect fit, right length with your amazing legs and timeless summer prints.
    I just recently checked Ralph Lauren dresses and they had nice ones on sale as usually they are well above my budget.

    My tomatoes look exactly the same ;-)
