deja porté

J'ai deja porté (or already wore in my mediocre French) this dress a few times on this blog (here, here and here) and many more times uncaptured by film.  Heck I even wore this dress as my good luck charm when I tried to go blonde 2 weeks ago (clearly that didn't turn out so well!)

It's my go-to piece, what I throw on when I'm in a hurry but still want to look cute.  And the best part about this white lacy dress? It was free! Gifted to me at a clothing swap party I hosted back in October, I love this dress as if it cost me oodles of cash.  Perfect with bare legs and cute shoes in the summer or thick tights and a blazer in the colder months, it's timeless, confortable and easy to style, just the way I like it!



Pssst...did anyone notice I actually styled my hair today? Don't get used to it, it'll be back to its state of disarray before you know it! :)

My funky nails were inspired by a 17 year old at work who was rocking bright yellow nail polish with one hot pink nail on each hand.  Gotta love youthful creativity!

  1. Your white lace dress is just adorable! Easy to see why it's a go-to piece.

    I've had them in the past, but at the moment there isn't one thing I'm insistent on wearing repeatedly...

  18. There is a reason this is your go-to dress -- It's perfect!!!! It's your LWD -- Your Little White Dress!!!

    I love the nails. I regularly rock the two-tone color. Painting 8 nails one color and two nails (one on each hand) a different color is my favorite thing to do.

  22. Fantastic dress! And then I saw the picture from the back with the scooped neckline...and I loved it even more! It's even lacy enough to do double-duty as a romantic nightie, but then it doesn't deserve to be in the bedroom. Was the tag still on? Would love to know the designer - Kat
