|can't go wrong with a silk rose splash of red|
http://ismodern.com/zen/ i discovered the brand one day on a stroll down Amsterdam Avenue right in our hood. They had dresses on sale for 50% off (of course) and the print and detail and quality was so good i immediately googled the designer on-line and have been an ISMODERN SALE devotee since....you'll be seeing the outfit currently featured on the site on our Scout fashion filers soon.
GRAY FOR A GRAY DAY AND WE BLEND
Today to ward off the January chill, Scout has on the wonderfully thick cotton-lined rich charcoal marl long sleeved ismodern shift with wonderful medieval style puff shoulder. the fur well, is mine, that i added and was quite pleased with myself, i might add. It is so simple and cheap to add a tiny touch that puts the ensemble right over the top to turn an everyday outfit in to a stand-out. You can always find stray collars, cuffs and other wonderful scraps of fur and faux (if you are opposed to the real deal) at thrift stores-- i have accumulated quite the collection of bibs and bobs of cozy additions. In keeping with my favorite -- an animal theme, we paired the dress with her subtle black on charcoal, GAP leopard print tight and her black on gray, zebra print GAP wool pea coat.
The GAP had an entire line of animal print goods, a couple of years ago and I stocked up at the store in Westport CT -- and paid full price. shame shame. never fear fellow Recessionistas, the coat is getting a bit snug, so it's almost time to post it on ebay. I will say, the quality of the GAP items was not great, so re-sale opportunities are slim on this particular line. Scout found her adorable Hartstrings velvet flats on one of our hunts and we managed to pick them up recently for $2.99. her faux fur trapper topper is well mine and it's DKNY. Scout is ready for her urban safari.
