I spotted this dress on the racks of a consignment store down the street from my house - it was brand new with the original retail tags. From Barney's. I tried it on and had to take it home with me that weekend. This is the first plaid piece I feel like I can "do" and it feels right with my favorite boots. I think it's a keeper! This outfit also has me feeling like I am missing red cowboy boots from my wardrobe. Wouldn't a pair be great with this dress?
I feel my whole wardrobe shifting lately, with a lot more vintage and Western influences. I'm still culling a lot of things to donate and sell, and with the whole not shopping business, have had to shop my closet more. This is going to be an interesting experiment, to say the least.
Did anyone else give up new clothes shopping for Lent?
And on the brand:
Zachary's Smile is a NYC-based line of reworked vintage and signature designs in unique patterns. Some of you might remember that Anthropologie carried the brand's exclusive African wax-print dresses last year. Their NYC and LA shops stock well-curated vintage pieces in addition to their house brand clothing. I'm still dying to get my hands on my own wax-print dress! Hopefully I'll be able to scoop one up on my next trip to the City!
