My MBMJ Soviet Inspired Dress

I stalked this dress for years and finally tracked one down on ebay for a song. From Marc by Marc Jacobs fall 2007, I knew it would be the perfect winter dress for the coldest of days. But until last November it eluded me. I was thrilled to wear it into Manhattan with Chris to have lunch and peruse the Saks consolidation sale. It was the coldest day of my visit to New York but somehow everything except my legs stayed super warm. I've been wearing a lot of plain wool dresses lately.

I am sure I was influenced by the recent musings of That Damn Green Dress and Commonwealth Girl so all brown dresses and "Soviet" inspired pieces are bringing me a lot of comfort.

Joelle, thanks so much! I was glad to have brought it because it was colder than I expected and I swear 10 degrees chillier than where I was staying in Brooklyn.

Thatdamngreendress, Ooh I am intrigued by the book. Sober dresses are the best. :)

Gee, thanks so much! I think ebay is addictive because it is a place where I can indulge some of my worst qualities: competitiveness and materialism. haha
