Yes, I love fashion. But I love a number of other things, too! Literature, football, food, music, and yes, even wine. Which is maybe why I absolutely love the colors of wine in clothes. To me, nothing is as sophisticated as a beautiful champagne-colored silk. And nothing makes me feel more robust and alive than a rich cabernet color - just like the color in this dress!

This was another gem from the recent Mint Julep sidewalk sale. I thought it would be perfect for work (with a jacket, as you see here), or for an evening party (maybe for the holidays?), and even totally pre-fall with tights and a sweater!!

  1. The dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you! It's a beautiful colour and the jacket looks fab with it! Loving the polish you're wearing on your toes too!

  2. This is my FAVORITE outfit of yours yet! Love the colors together and the belt is fabu!

  3. You think just like me. I always visualize a dress for work and play and if it has potential to be worn with tights! I'll usually think about wearing boots as opposed to shoes as well. Anyways, I'm a big supporter of this color, especially on us blondes. It looks amazing on you and I have to admit, I like the new spot you took your picture in. Think it's just the opposite side of your deck but none the less it's a nice backdrop. Have a great weekend girl :)

    Beautiful colors! I have this dress in emerald and LOVE it. Wine can be so inspirational: the colors and the flavors can inspire... or you can just drink a bottle, rummage through your closet and see what kind of crazy magic you make!
