Channeling Carol Brady

Something about my dress and hair yesterday made me feel very much like Carol Brady, a feeling I didn't mind one bit.

I bought this lovely magenta shift last year at Petrune and only wore it a few times because it was a little big. I thought about having it taken in, but am so glad I didn't. I've recently put on a few pounds and although a lot of my other clothes aren't fitting too well (hence the lack of outfit pix for the last month or so), this dress now fits perfectly! There's always a bright side, you know?!

Last winter I only wore this dress one way: with black chenille tights that have an open circular pattern, pointy black flats, and mod-ish silver jewelry. I just wasn't feeling that look yesterday and opted instead for cozy camel and gold accessories. The reality is, I'm obsessed with these boots and have pretty much worn them every day since I bought them back in October.

Do you ever get stuck on one piece of clothing or accessory? Anything you're fixated on right now?

I'm wearing: Magenta wool a-line shift - vintage; Camel cable knit sweater tights - Hue; Cognac boots - Steve Madden; Stone wrapped hoop earrings - Stella & Dot; Gold filigree necklace - vintage.

Lastly, I'm excited to announce that the winner of this week's Holiday Giveaway of a jar of our homemade violet jelly is:

Michelle P.

Congrats, Michelle! E-mail me your address, and I'll get your jelly right off to you. I hope you love it!


  1. Love the pink and camel together. And hello? We have a fluffy intruder?

  2. What a great picture and LOVE your whole look, especially your perfectly mod hair!! Currently my only clothing fixation is one I wear at home; it's FREEZING in our apartment..... a men's Irish wool sweater that amazingly is not itchy. I would be an icicle without it!

  3. I love this! Those boots are absolutely DIVINE!

  4. Love this! The dress, necklace, boots, all amazing!!!

  5. This is a really great look on you. That shade of pink is perfect!

    I was wondering if you had received any of my emails about the LRN giveaway winner? I have written a few times and she told me she still hasn't heard from you. If you have a second to shoot me an email, I'd appreciate it!
