Sample of Wonder


It's getting cold out and I want nothing more than to dress from head to toe in knitwear. This dress just about fits the bill. A few weeks ago I made it to the C Wonder sample sale and picked up a few pieces, including this dress. 

It's an actual sample from the original design work on the dress. You'll notice it's a slightly different color than the production piece at C Wonder. I made sure to try it on before taking it home, just in case there was something strange with the sample piece. Luckily there was dressing room at the sample sale, though it was just a big communal room for all the ladies! Thanks to the sale I was able to pick up this dress for less than half the original (and still current) price. 


In order to stay warm, I decided to pair it up with some thick tights and my new black ankle booties from Joie. Are you near a Joie boutique and want some new shoes? They are pairing up with Soles4Souls until November 28th. Bring in a pair of gently worn shoes and you'll receive 20% off of your full price shoe purchase! (I got this pair by trading in a pair of Pumas that never really fit right.)





Note to self: Do not shoot images on the roof when it's windy.

  13. At first look in the first photo I thought you were wearing a skirt which looked darling. But then I see a gorgeous dress. All of your outfit is stunning. And I love the colors which compliment your hair color.
