lend me a hand.

i normally don't buy clothes with people or faces on them, but this dress had a few oomph-worthy details i couldn't pass up.
silk.
off-the-shoulder.
fully lined.
and...
pockets.
i love pockets.
i have all these bags i carry around...some of them i don't even look in, but i bring them along everyday for fear of forgetting something. there's my purse. my camera bag. my makeup bag. my lunch/miscellaneous stuff bag. plus i usually have a coffee in one hand, my son in the other. i can always use an extra set of "hands" to carry my phone, or keys, or money, or snacks, or whatever else i pick up along the way.

(dress, voom @ island edge)

  1. I get highly irritated when I wear things without pockets- I can see how they are definitely a deal maker/ deal breaker!

  22. Your blog is so cute! I also love pockets. Where else would I put my hands when I'm slouching against a wall? I'm having a Sunday Linky again this week, which will be up at midnight, so feel free to share this post of yours if you'd like ;) I feature my favorites from the list every week.

  23. The patterns are so cool and I really like the jewelry and of course you know how I feel about the shoes!
    I have a lot bags in my car too. For the money/camera/phone I use a cross shoulder small size bag which always stays on me unless I am at home. That way I can leave the stroller and diaper bag and run after two toddlers without fear of leaving behind valuables. I was just eyeing the new kate spade bag in that size but no way can I spend that much.
