Neutral Territory

By the time you read this, I'll be submersed in strategic planning at our corporate retreat, sneaking quiet moments on the dock to read Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five and the September issue of Vogue. I doubt I'll find much sartorial inspiration in the former, so I'm relying on Vogue for autumnal staples - like a camel-colored dress. The feminine silhouette is reminiscent of the 1950s - certainly not an unappealing trait, but I still craved the juxtaposition of youthful accessories.

Outfit Notes: Nine West Dress; Banana Republic Necklace, The Limited Bracelet; Forever21 Ring; Jeffrey Campbell Shoes; Revlon "Minted" Nail Polish

  5. I've been known to look at garments and shout "ah! Those seams!"
    This is one of those times -- the bodice looks like it fits you perfectly and that alone makes it gorgeous!!

  15. Another fantastic ensemble :) I adore a chic dress with pockets! Remember my strategy for escaping your work "escape." Although the September Vogue and a beloved book certainly sounds like a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
