Sock it to Me

March 2nd, 2010 by Selise

All this talk of socks yesterday got me riffling through my cold weather clothes again. I told you I’d bust them out soon.

And it was the perfect day to keep my feet and the lower half of my legs warm and dry. Sister it is rain-y out there. No water splashing down the back of my shoes thanks. I love to play in the rain and I’ll avoid using an umbrella until it’s almost monsoonal (unless it’s for photo opportunities), but I don’t love soaking wet shoes.

I found this dress yesterday. Marked down heavily and hidden half way down a rack. I kind of have a feeling someone did the whole “stash it there, look somewhere else and then come back and grab it if I don’t find anything better” deal. In which case, sorry, I hope you found something else.

It’s so soft and light and pretty. And when I pull the collar up I feel all regal which for some reason makes me think of Helena Bonham Carter’s character in the new Alice in Wonderland which really isn’t what I was going for but I am looking forward to seeing it this weekend. And looking at the image now I don’t know why I thought there was a similarity.

I was right obsessed with Alice in Wonderland when I was younger and paired with Johnny Depp I about had kittens when I heard Tim Burton was doing a version. Now I just hope it lives up to my lofty expectations.

    I love this dress on you, that's so excellent that you found it marked down. I somewhat surprisingly quite love it with the knee socks. Really cute.

    And I am WAY excited for Alice in Wonderland. I just watched a video about the costumes here:
