This floral dress is the first ‘Spring-y’ item that I’ve bought so far this season, and I absolutely love it. I actually ordered the dress last summer from a Moda Operandi trunkshow – have you ever bought anything from them? It’s a really neat concept, though I can’t decide whether waiting months to get an items is fun or just kind of annoying. It’s mostly fun, I think…it definitely makes it that much more exciting when the item actually arrives.
This dress is from London based Indian designer Saloni, who does really gorgeous prints and silhouettes. Princess Kate actually wore the brand the other day while in India, which makes me like it that much more since I’m a pretty big Princess Kate fan (but who isn’t?).
What have you bought for Spring so far, if anything? I got that white denim skirt I was talking about the other day, and a few new basic tees so far, and I think that might actually be all that I need. I’ve been trying to be more mindful with shopping and to buy fewer, better quality items instead of dozens of less that stellar pieces that get pushed to the back of my closet. I’ve been following a few bloggers who are doing the 5 Piece French Wardrobe Challenge and it’s quite inspiring to see. I don’t know if I’ll ever be someone with a tiny capsule wardrobe (I like shopping and fashion too much!) but it’s an interesting concept and really makes you think about what items you actually need, and about this strange culture of constant consumerism that we live in (and that I’m definitely guilty of). Something to think about.
Have a happy Thursday : )
