Bold in the Cold

This colorful dress is sure to keep you thinking of spring in the cold!  It’s a perfect dress to wear in any weather – sandals in the summer and with long sleeves and tights in the dead of winter.  {It’s a recent Anthropologie sale find so I wanted to share it with you before it’s too late.  I used my birthday discount for even more savings! YAY!}

coat :: vintage from mom

This shearling coat was my moms.  {She doesn’t wear it anymore so it was given to me.}  It’s pretty beat up and the belt was lost, but I added a leather loop and button so I could wear it closed.  It is really heavy – I think it weighs like 5 pounds!
The dress is SO COLORFUL and bold!  I LOVE it!!  The front and back are even different patterns.  The sleeves remind me of something from the 70s.  And wait till you see the back neckline!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

  1. Gorgeous dress, love the colors and flower patterns and esp. the detailing on the back. It looks great paired with the high boots here, can’t wait to see how you wear it in the spring time. That coat def. looks heavy – look at all the fur and shearlings on it! It is gorgeous nonetheless and esp. coming from mom it will be a timeless item.

  2. Love the coat and the colors/detailing on that dress! Who says you cant be bold in the fall!?!

  3. I swear my mom had that EXACT same coat! I wonder where it went? Your blog is fabulous by the way! I love ALL of your outfits!

  4. What an amazing dress! I love the back of it and those flutter sleeves. Great coat, even if it weighs a lot. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  5. This dress is gorgeous Sam! It looks like something I’d find from Tibi for $550+ I like the colours as well as the coat you are wearing! SO glad you think I got a good deal since I know you have experience in consignment shopping :) I am going back soon ahhhhhh.

  6. The dress is truly unique. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Anthropologie has an amazing selection of clothes. You’ve just reminded me to visit their website again. I’ve been too obsessed with Isabel Marant that I haven’t checked out anything else since.
