I really try not to post too many magazine-y dresses: you know, incredibly expensive, where-the-hell-would-I-wear-that designer-noodling, but (and you knew there was a but coming) this one, this one is SPECIAL. I could see wearing this one. That is, I could see wearing this one if the skies opened up and deposited nearly $1600 in small, unmarked bills at my feet. Think Net-a-Porter would let me pay in dirty singles?

Exhale. This wool jersey dress is by Roland Mouret. Net-a-Porter describes it as

Espresso below knee length square neck wool jersey dress with gathered cap sleeves and a knotted skinny leather belt. Dress has darting at waist on the front and back with tiny pleat detail underneath, visible panels at shoulders, button fastening slit on the back and a wide panel at hem. Lined in black stretch mesh and fastens at the back with a zip.

but that really doesn't do it justice. Just gaze at the picture. Gaze and enjoy.

Needless to say, I wouldn't wear it with pointy-toed shoes. Round toes only, please. And it would be lovely with a camel coat and a moss green bag. Both of which I happen to already have. You know, just in case the skies do open up. Going outside now …

  1. I also am a round-toe girl, LOL. I didn’t think they were many of us around..those pointy shoes just hurt to look at them. Ouch!


  2. I fell in love with Mouret’s entire line this season. In case any extra packets of money happen to fall from the sky while you’re out there…And pointy toes don’t hurt if they fit correctly. The pointy part doesn’t start till the shoe’s past your toes, if that makes any sense. Your toes aren’t in that wedge part.


  3. That is beautiful. And I have the perfect pair of dark brown, croc patterned velvet, pointy toe shoes to wear with it. (I also have them in black, they were that comfortable and it was that good of a sale.)beautiful, just beautiful.
