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!} 
boots :: Alex Marie (Dillards)
coat :: vintage from mom
necklace :: gifted from mom for bday
earrings :: thrifted from estate sale
bag :: Coach
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!!

  2. 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.

  17. 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.
