Loving the dress as a jacket; you have inspired me to think of a button up dress in my closet that might be used as a long jacket. LOVE the dress; I'd love to see it sans jacket to see more of it's structure and fabric content

Sarah tagged this Hot

The phrase "flirty fishing" has some very unsavory associations for me. (Don't want to go into it, you can Wiki it.) But the outfit is v. v. cute! Love the necklace!

Jennifer Rose tagged this loverly

o dear, the flirty fishing moniker is indeed a bit unsavory. but perhaps you were playing with that... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flirty_fishing Otherwise, a lovely light look for a hot summer day. (If NYC is as humid as Boston, I'm sure you're cursing the darned uniform jacket, but it adds some really nice vertical/diagonal angles.)

Also, when can we get the opportunity to buy the uniform dress or buy the pattern so we can sew one up for ourselves?

Svanhvit tagged this what they're all saying

I echo it. Thought yesterdays was the best of the month but now not so sure! The colours are gorgeous and delicate and summery and the dress as jacket is working really well.

I love this outfit! And, for that matter, all the outfits before it...each one seems better than the last! I wanted to post not only to say how fun this site is, but also to ask you for your advice/ideas for thrift stores and flea markets in NYC. My husband and I visited this past month, and I am coming again later this fall, and really want to find some fun little (reasonably priced if possible!) boutiques/flea markets/antique stores. So...obviously you're busy planning these fabulous outfits :-), but if you have a second to email me your suggestions that would be fabulous!! My addresss is isabella.hodge@verizon.net thanks so much! and I LOVE your creativity...I feel inspired!
