Rumor has it

One of my favorite secondhand stores, Coco's on the Green has a sister store that is going out of business, so everything in it is on sale.
Meg, Christine and I, have perhaps become a little obsessed with going there before the doors are closed for good.

During one of our recent trips to Coco's of Madison I found this Anna Sui for Target dress, and since it was only $10, I had to bring it home.
I think I was somewhat aware of an Anna Sui/Target diffusion line, but that was back in 2009 and I wasn't really paying attention.
It's $60 original price tags were still intact, so I think it was a bargain.

I decided to play up all the colors of the dress, mixing in both black and brown neutrals, and matching the jeweled statement necklace.
This dress was inspired by Blair of Gossip Girl; would she approve of my styling?

  17. As a certified GG fanatic and a disciple of the Blair Waldorf school for style, I can say she'd ALMOST approve.... you forgot the giant bow headband! :)

    (But, I guess it's excusable if you are channeling post-high school Blair.)

  38. Oh, those going out of business sales are the best for finding great deals. This dress is just straight up gorgeous, I really like the pattern and the colors and it is very Blair-ish with the blazer and heels! (I drool over your Coach handbag every time, I love the two-toned colors.)
