when it rains, it pours.

French Connection dress, Banana Republic heels, Marc Jacobs bag, American Eagle earrings, vintage ring, Essie nail polish in Big Spender

One truly great thing about working at an upscale resale boutique is that I can snap up new items the second that they come in -- hence, the majority of this outfit. This chic little French Connection dress, Banana Republic heels, and classic Marc Jacobs bag all came into the store within hours of one another... All in my sizes and priced to move. Although I did have a slightly expensive day at work, the pieces combined to make a perfect outfit. Adding this sweet little vintage ring and chandelier earrings seemed like the perfect way to top off the look without detracting from the voluminous sleeves, and I can say with complete certainty that the look was a hit with my dinner companions (here, in case any Minneapolis/St. Paul readers are interested).





Wishing you all a very happy weekend!
xo Josie

Josie you hit the jackpot at work. I wish we had a good consignment store around here that wasn't filled with pretentious hipsters that make me feel like I don't bear enough of the cool to be in their presence. They don't understaaaand I don't want their plaid button ups. I really don't.

I want some of what you're wearing. It's darling!!
