Paris, someday

This lovely black and nude dress that 365Hangers sent over makes me think of Paris, or at least, a dress I would definitely pack if I were to ever travel there.

It's simple, elegant, and monochrome. I especially love the use of the contrasting materials on the back of the dress.

The best part; because 365Hangers gets all their inventory from sample sales at deep discounts, I can put quality designer pieces in my closet, and still have money left over to add to my travel fund.

If you haven't checked out their site yet, you should take a peek. All the clothes are styled on models who are the actual size of the garment you'd be purchasing, so you have a better feel for how it will actually fit you - isn't that ingenius?

  26. This dress is perfectly Parisian - you would look so at home wearing it for a walk across Pont Neuf and a coffee and croissant stop in a cafe :) I can't help but love it because it's neutral and has a tulle skirt. Can you ever go wrong with tulle? I don't think so.
