Poppy Dress!

Happy Friday! Today’s outfit is a bit fitting as I am heading to the Kate Spade presentation a little later today and they sent me this outfit to wear to it. You might know by now that I love a good fit and flare dress and this one is SO fun. The back is just everything, with the three dimensional flowers. If you have a party coming up, this is your dress! I paired it with this (amazing!!) matryoshka doll clutch and fun leopard heels for a look that manages to feel classic + whimsical and fun all at once. That’s what I love about Kate Spade. Their pieces are generally pretty timeless, but there is always an element of fun in there.

I hope you guys are having a good one. This has been a busy one over here, juggling presentations and shows and parties with getting regular old work done. There is never a dull moment this time of year! Be sure to follow along on Instagram as I will continue to post my fashion week adventures over there on stories!

the sweetest clutch!

I can’t be the only one who collected matryoshka dolls as a kid!? If you did too, you will appreciate this as much as I do. The only bummer is that there isn’t another clutch, nesting inside.

shop!

    The price on that bag is insane. It is cute though. I love those dolls. 🙂

    • I know, it is pricey! If it’s any consolation, it’s actually solid wood so pretty substantial. I love the dolls too.. collected ’em as a kid and the clutch makes me miss them! Hope you have a great weekend, Cathleen!!!

  2. This dress brings me back to Remembrance Day poppies we’d use to get during primary school! So cute!

    Love that dress! Do you have any tips for combining patterns? I would have never thought to do a floral and an animal print together, but it looks great. Do I just need to be more daring?

    • I think you just need to be a little more daring!

      Personally I view stripes and leopard as neutral – both will mix nicely with each other and/or other patterns (think florals, polka dots, etc.) I think it also helps to keep the scale small, or to wear one larger print with a smaller print. Honestly, I just throw things on and see how they look together!

    This dress is amazing and I love the back details! I used to work at Kate Spade and it was the best happy place ever.

    SUCH a cute dress. Did you know that David Spade is Kate Spade’s brother-in-law?

  8. I love your dress, it’s beautiful! Black and red always pair together so well!

    I’m actually surprised they didn’t make a coin purse to tuck inside!
