Fall Fashion Week - Thursday

Thursday, October 28, 2010

There are disadvantages and advantages of being married to a man who works in the garment industry. Particularly a guy in quality control.

Disadvantages:
When you buy clothes at Target he shakes his head at you.
"How could you buy something with such 
poor ______ (enter sewing jargon here)?"
To which I gently remind him:
"Babe, for $3 I don't really care if it even has a hem."

Advantages:
1. He has great style
2. He'll help finance your expensive jean collection 
because after carefully inspecting the quality of the construction he deems them worth the price
&
&3. Unexpected Presents from Work
such as this Patagonia dress:



 I love this dress for so many reasons:
the pattern and colors
the fact that it actually gives me a bust
the sleeve length
it's super comfortable

Dress: Patagonia
Sweater: thrifted
Tights: f21
Boots: Frye

And when your little guy sees you in boots naturally he wants to wear his as well

That dress is amazing. What a great "work present" And the boots on your little guy are priceless.

That dress is killer and I really love it paired with those tights. As always, love your Frye boots. I would not mind at all if my husband financed my jean collection (rather than now where he has no idea about it ;) )

I'm sorry. This is totally inappropriate. After you said the dress gave you a bust the only comment I can think is: Nice rack Anna. ;)
I love the dress though. I didn't know patagonia made dresses. I need to go check that out now!

Chelsea said...

pretty dress and your little guy is adorable in his boots!

Em-Jae said...

Whaaaaat?! Your surprise presents are total awesome-sauce.

Oh, and your little man's boots are ridiculously amazing as well. He should probably wear those every day before his feet grow too big. They're that amazing.
