First sign of Fall

This chevron printed dress is another lovely piece sent to me by London Times. Chevron is the print I was obsessed with all summer, and the Flame Stitch dress is the perfect way to carry it into fall.

The thicker knit, three quarter sleeves, and gorgeous color pallet will work so well with chestnut brown boots and burgundy tights (when that dreaded time comes that I must give up my sandals).

Until then, the long sleeves were just what I needed for these now chilly mornings, as I'm not ready to pull out jackets and cardigans quite yet.

I also appreciate how completely office appropriate this dress is with out any added layers, perfect for those days when I don't know what to wear, or have over slept and need one simple stylish piece I can throw on without worry. London Times actually has several adorable office friendly dresses in their fall collection. Worth checking out!

Ooh I love that dress!! It is so you (and me because it's purple and maroon ;) )

Yea, I want the photos from the photographer! A couple showed up on Lucky in a street style post, you can see you in one of them, ha ha. [I can see pieces of me in them] http://www.luckymag.com/blogs/luckyrightnow/2012/09/Best-Street-Style-Looks-from-FABB#slide=11

That dress is incredible...such rich fall colors! I love how you kept the rest of the outfit simple with the gold accessories to let the dress shine!

I'm seriously in love with this dress. its perfect for the office or a night out or some mid afternoon shopping. I need it!

Rebecca said...

Those jewel tones look great on you.

Gray Skies said...

That dress is insanely gorgeous! I gasped out loud when I saw it, the colors are so striking. It actually looks a lot more vivid in your photos than it does on their website. I'll hopefully be starting a part-time office job in a few months, and I realized I don't actually have that many work-appropriate dresses, so this one has now gone on my office attire wish-list.

Oh crud, that dress is too cute! I especially love the sleeves. I'm really into dresses with sleeves because my arms are like noodles and so I feel like sleeves make them appear less noodly, thus balancing myself out? It sounds silly but yeah...

But yes, that dress is AMAZING on you. The color and pattern are gorgeous, and I love it with that lion belt. This may be one of my favorite outfits of yours!

Sue said...

That is a really lovely dress, and really lovely on you. Love the pattern and the deep colours.

I can't believe it's cooled off so suddenly! That's good here in New York, but the mornings are becoming a little chilly.

This dress is so pretty. I'm super jealous. New bracelet too?

Jill said...

So I have this dress in my cart and I'm wondering how sizing runs. What do you think, big or small?

Chevron central- wow the colors on this dress makes me want to welcome fall fashion with open arms. I love London Times. I will be highlighting this look on Work Wear Wednesday.
