Style: October ’09

Style: October '09

That gorgeous necklace is huge and definitely makes a statement all on its own, and I have a little crush on those cute oxfords, so I put together this month’s style post around those two items. A classically pretty dress and simple tote bag are good foundation pieces for the outfit, and a hammered gold ring compliments the necklace without clashing.

    i have that boden dress, and althought it’s super cute on the stick-thin-girdle-wearing models, it shows every wobbly bit ever. it’s cute, just very clingy jersey, and not in the flattering way. however, if your parts are firm, go forth! buy!

    I know that the woman is a model, but oh-my-goodness, we really need to teach women how to sit properly in dresses and skirts. I have been flashed everywhere… in meetings, at the park, at the mall, at restaurants. It’s not that hard to learn how and when to properly cross your legs or ankles, friends… :)

    So I went to Fred Flare on Saturday since it’s fairly close to me and I LOVE the bag you posted above. I do have to admit it is quite bigger than it looks to be in the pic but they have some great stuff!!

    I have had my eye on that Boden dress for weeks but worried about the wobbly bits (my wobbly bits that is).

    This is why I love your website – fabulous decor ideas plus wobbly bit info gleaned from the comments.

    I will not be ordering the dress :-)
