These stripes. They called out my name in three languages and offered me a triple espresso. LpD’s new Carmen Dress looks conceptual on account of its statement shape, but it was easy to style and easy to wear with a restrained AO. (Actually, I’d like to see someone bouncing off walls in this dress. The stripes would probably offer me a pain au chocolat to go with that espresso.) The other two versions of the dress are equally seductive, if stripeless: one features big black polkadots on a washed-out burgundy background and the other boasts an elegant floral pattern in a cream/pale blue/pale moss-green palette.
This was going to be the glammy closeup, but I got to playing with depth of field and thinking about how much I used to love Anna Gaskell’s photos, and pretty soon that fuzzy arm was all I cared about. The skin is lovely: a velvety, heart-marked LB item from Mother Goose’s.
