So usually the items I post on “What I Want Wednesday” are a range of prices… some more affordable than others. Well, after I saw this exquisite, perfect, amazing (you think I like?) Jenny Packham dress, I decided to do my favorite runway gowns so far from the Fall 2013 shows. And no, I probably won’t ever be able to afford gowns like these, but a girl can always dream!
Dear Jenny Packham,
I know you’re totally reading this. Obviously. And I know you have fallen in love with my charm (and good looks). And I know you want to give me this gown. Of course you do. For my wedding? Please? (The guy will come, don’t worry, that part can be taken care of.)
I bought a fun lace dress at the DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) sample sale a couple months ago and was saving it to wear it in the Spring. Well, then I became impatient (as I often tend to be) and decided that I wanted to wear it already! Why not wear bold, bright colors in the Winter? I think it totally can brighten your mood!

Here are some pretty lace dresses I love:

I was so excited to wear my J.Crew sequin striped top and when I stumbled on this silk shirt in a perfect match from Ann Taylor, I knew I had an awesome outfit. 🙂 I was going to wear this outfit with gray boots but my photographer, Chani Deutsch, encouraged me to wear the neon pink flats. Once you’re going for color, do it all the way, right?!
So many pretty things, not a big enough budget. Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my face. That Arm Candy bracelet from Kate Spade is on sale just for today Here. It’s so fun! Those amazing emerald bow pumps-how gorgeous?? Here. Polka dotted Forever 21 sweater here. Love the neon dots! That necklace is pretty gorgeous, no? I love the hints of aqua! You can get it here. The J.Crew cardigan is a bit out of my budget (ok a looooot). You can find it here. Loving that gorgeous mint bag from Rebecca Minkoff! You can find it here. And those J.Crew shoes are also out of my budget (ok, everything is at the moment) but I am obsessed with those scalloped details and color combo!!! You can find it here. Also, obsessed with lace and that blue shift dress is such an easy style and gorgeous color! You can find it here ….oh and it’s on sale! Ahhh someone stop me please!!! 🙂
I’ve been trying so hard not to buy anything lately. But when I saw this sequin and polka dot top in J.Crew, AND it was on sale, I knew G-d must be communicating with me. 😉 Ok, I’m kidding….well, sort of anyway. When it comes to a good sale, I tend to lose any sort of control I thought I might have had. I should probably also mention that I bought a gorgeous mint sequin striped top on sale too. But I needed it of course. Because it was mint. with turquoise. and it had stripes. and did I mention sequins? Ok, I’ll stop before I make myself sound any worse;)
