OUTFIT//BUSY MESSY DRESSY

It's a miracle - I'm wearing a dress! It's a double miracle, because this dress was purchased on super sale and is the new version of a dress I wish I bought at the Isabel Marant store in Paris 5 years ago and have been kicking myself about ever since. 

Here's the full look:

Dress on it's own: visually messy, it's got folds, tucks, layers, print (s) ruching, and for a short girl... this is a tricky one.

Check out the madness in the pattern. 

SHOP THE DRESS

For a woman who doesn't like belting things, I sure as hell knew this dress needed breaking up. Here are two belts, one with some sick hardware and a simple black leather. 

Worn together - both tied in a loop, for a messy look. 

Breaks up the visual noise, no? 

SHOP THE BELTS

Movement is a good thing.

Would have been SO easy to put on a black shoe... but you know what time it is!

SHOP THE SHOE

Every Fall there is A PIECE it's THE ONE, for me it's a jacket that I am dying for and will wear for as long as possible. This Isabel Marant blazer is the one for me! 

Strong shoulder, kinda collarless around the neck, but has a lapel (what??) and I have NO idea how to describe the way this puppy was manufactured, but get into it.
