I don’t consider myself a fashionista by any means. I prefer plain, solid colors and classic staples in my wardrobe. Simplicity and comfort are two keys…hence why I’m often found sporting athletic wear and shirts from all my races.
One of my favorite past times, especially when I was in graduate school at Edinboro, was driving to the mall (Millcreek Mall in Erie, PA), grabbing a coffee, and window shopping. It was a wonderful distraction from the stress of academia, and more often than not, didn’t buy anything. That didn’t stop me from smelling all the candles at Yankee Candle, though!
Chris was playing tour guide for me the other day as he was showing me around the malls around Orlando. We headed to the Mall at Millenia, which is a bit more upscale than what I’m used to. It includes a lot of the stores that I fawn over in preppy magazines, like Brooks Brothers and Vineyard Vines, so it’s definitely a win in my book! (I have an obsession over the preppy lifestyle, but that’s a post for a different day.)
There is a southern-based store called White House Black Market, and we stopped in there for a quick looksee. I am always on the hunt for those classic wardrobe staples, and I spotted this LBD almost instantly. Chris insisted that I try it on (he’s a pro photographer and always looking for cute things for me to try!), so I did.
Result: A very Audrey Hepburn-ish look…
I slipped it on and fell completely in love with the cut. It fit like a dream, and is definitely on my #goals list when I finally land a job!
Chris spotted this necklace and had me pair it. I hate gold jewelry, but I have to admit, this combination looked really sharp.
Specs: I’m 5’5″ and roughly 140 lbs with broad shoulders. I’m wearing a size four. No complaints 🙂
If you’re searching for a LBD to add to your wardrobe, I would highly recommend this one!
P.S. It has pockets!!
