Woe is Me!

On my last post, some of you agreed that I should share my "to-buy" list. I may get around to that eventually, but for now, I just want to show you the number one item I've been lusting after. I saw this Banana Republic dress when it was featured in Marie Claire recently, and I have been dreaming about it ever since.


The cut! The color! The sleeves! Is there anything more beautiful in this world? I mean, I get that it's kind of mermaid-like, and maybe I am trying to fulfill my childhood dream of becoming Ariel, but I don't really care. I must have it.

Obviously, I was thoroughly disappointed when I checked the website and it was nowhere to be found. But, as luck would have it, I spotted it at Banana Republic the other day while buying the black dress for GMA. Unfortunately, they only had it in a size 12 (and let's be honest, even if the size 16 was in stock, there's no way it would get around these hips). I was almost delusional enough to hope the 12 would magically fit, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants style, but I took one look at the fabric and shook my head.

It truly is perfection, though. I am considering having one custom made on etsy, because I really don't know how much longer I can live without it in my closet.

  1. the dress is gorgeous and the color is so pretty! I want one!!

    I also have a question, I have never ordered anything from etsy. What artist/designer would you ask to make the dress for you? I have a tea party coming up next month and I am having a hard time finding a dress and i want something with either ruffles or a stylish bow detail....I so etsy just may be the perfect option for me

  4. That dress is awesome! You should either get someone on Etsy to do it or find a tailor in your area. You NEED to own this dress, though.

  6. Slightly irrelevant, but the mention of Evans reminded me... saw this tunic and thought of your post about mesh a while back. Not sure it's your style but I could totally imagine you in it. And 20% off everything till tomorrow!

  9. Warm dog clothing Abercrombie Polos is made in many different popular fabrics as well. You Abercrombie Polos can get sweaters which are made out of fleece, jackets ed hardy Hats made with micro fiber faux suede as well as knits and standard cotton blends. The Ed Hardy Sale best place to find all of these selections though is through the internet. When Ed Hardy Swimwear you go to the local pet store, if they have any selection at all, their Ed Hardy Swimwear prices can be expensive. The same also goes for specialty shops. However dog Ed Hardy Swimwear apparel on the internet are cheap and since they are even delivered to your front door, you get even more savings.
