Quick Babergh OOTD


I wore this before I left for Brazil back in early December. I don't recall why I never shared it. I do remember not feeling too happy with my tights and shoe pairing. Although the photo makes them look black, they aren't. The tights are a steel gray and the shoes are blue suede with maroon captoe and straps. I'd like to try some textured light gray wolfords next time I wear this because the gray just look black. I was excited to get this dress. I ended up waiting for a sale, despite how risky it is to do so with popular dresses like the Babergh. I am too much of a bargain-hunting believer in shopping destiny to rationalize full price purchases at Anthropologie, anyway. I even hesitate buying items when the item is only on its first cut!

But waiting isn't without its consequences and risks. Because I waited, I didn't manage to track down an 8 like I tried here. I am wearing a 10 above. It seems like a better fit on my bottom half anyway. I do think the arm holes and waist are a bit blousey so I might eventually get that fixed.

I'm with you on the "waiting for sale" mentality with Anthro stuff. Their nonsale prices are a bit too much to justify, especially when everything eventually goes on sale!

absolutely smashing! I find it so hard to get all the colours and details to show up- especially when you know your tights are an essential element...
But this is gorgeous...!

I'm so glad you got that dress, it's really great on you.

Tien said...

I love soft colors and whites paired with black. There is something so harsh and jarring about it that makes it really beautiful. The dress is a knockout on you.

Oh you look beautiful! I really adore this look. I agree with Tien that the dark tights are an unexpected but perfect pairing.

:) :) :) Thank you for the kind compliments Adubs, Rosa, Joelle, Gee, Missy (thanks for the giveaway heads up too!), Roxy, Tien, and Marianne! I feel better about the dark with light after reading your words!

Thatdamngreendress, I know! It is so hard to get textures and nuances to photograph, especially with my crappy point and shoot camera. Thanks for reading!!

Jewish Girl, yeah I can't stomach the full prices at Anthro. Sometimes I even balk at the first cut price. :) Bargains 4 life!
