purple reign.

i'm not one to plan outfits in advance...so for hectic mornings, which is almost evvvry morning, i'm thankful for dresses because they are instant outfits.
that said, i can never pass up a great dress.
armani exchange has been my go-to place for fabulous pieces with an edge. every item has some oomph-worthy detail. i love the draping on the shoulders of this dress. it also has some awkward drapey thing going on in the back which i absolutely don't get, but it just works.
the fabric is silky smooth, and a few times i've found the tie undone.
do you feel a breeze?
i swear i'm not an exhibitionist.
double, triple knot.
another favorite armani dress here.

(dress, armani exchange; shoes, nine west)

  1. i don't plan outfits a day before but only hours before i go to work. it's hard if i don't cause i'd get late and what-not. like you, i love dresses cause if i don't like what i wore then i can easily wear a dress instead. that dress of yours is fab and love the print.

    btw,are those jellybeans? :)

    can't deal with planning outfits either. I just to the mad dash in the morning and end up with clothes all over sometimes.

  7. Oh wow - that dress looks great on you! I like wrap dresses - so easy to pull on when you're in a rush. Right now I still gotta wear leggings or stocking under my dresses because it's still cold :(

  23. I'm super organised I plan my work outfit the night before, I have to be up very early so don't want to spend time deciding on what to wear. Funnily enough though I don't plan what I'm wearing on a night out and often try out different outfits and this always makes me late.
