I've always been a huge fan of Brooklyn based Uzi and their hand screen printed tops.  Madewell just put them on promo and there's an extra 25% off so I hopped to it!

Nation dress

I've been wanting a nude dress all summer long and now that I've finally found one, I can't figure out what to do with it.  I like a nude dress in theory, but actually wearing one is a bit daunting.  I wanted to pair it with a bright color (so no one would mistake me for being naked) and went with this bright blue cardigan (that is more cobalt in real life than purple in this picture).  The accessories were chosen in about the 20 seconds I had remaining before I had to leave the house.  And yes, those are my second pair of No.6 t-strap clogs--they're insanely comfortable and were on sale, I'll wear them all the time I swear!  Anyways, I'd like to wear this dress again, but need some help.  I think I might hem it a bit (the hem can be cut just like Rachel Pally dresses, yay!), but what would you pair with it?  I need details!

Something old and something new:  found this amber glass jewelry box at an estate sale a while ago that then spurred me to purchase this beautiful J Crew necklace. It's super gorgeous in real life but I'm afraid it's way too glamorous for my every day life.  I'm trying to keep my wardrobe purchases functional but isn't fashion partly about having something a little fun and extravagant and over the top?  Now I just need an invite to a gala or benefit (or just dinner!)
