Originally, I spotted this print on the Anthropologie website, but it was featured as a dress. The "Well-Heeled" dress from Anthropologie by Eva Franco retails for $350 and while I appreciate that Franco makes all of her garments here in the USA, the price tag for a cotton dress seemed a little steep. On a random Google search for the dress I found the skirt (which I didn't know existed) reduced to about $90 on Amazon. I knew it was shoe/skirt fate and promptly ordered it ASAP. I am glad I did because this is certainly one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe now and one that I think I'll be wearing for years to come.
As I have stated before, blogging has allowed me to discover the world anew in search of the perfect backdrop. While out to lunch, I discovered this back alley with some very cool old buildings. I am not sure what this building is, but I love all of the brick.
My bow bag is from Furla, a company that still makes all its products in Italy for prices I find to be quite reasonable. When I went to Rome a while back, it was fun shopping at all of the Furla stores, which offer cute wallets and handbags, mostly in leather. I thought this satin bag was cute and it's a bow, so I couldn't resist. Shoes, bows, skirts...those are definitely some of my weaknesses!
