I've been swearing up and down that I will not get sucked into wearing dresses everyday this summer. I am trying to build my skirt collection but it is so hard to find anything worth buying as there aren't many options out there. Not one to deny the ease of a dress I broke down and made an addition to my collection that I know will get lots of wear over the next few months.
I just discovered a new boutique on Freret St. called Ensign. While it primarily stocks men's skate wear there is a small yet well edited rack of women's clothes. I scooped up this Nikita dress even though I normally abhor jersey in any form except a t-shirt. Jersey usually isn't very forgiving but this piece is well cut and the fabric is a nice weight so it hangs and drapes well. Besides the wide straps and fitted bodice the selling point was the pockets!
Here is a close up of the pattern. I like how at a glance this just looks like random dots but it is actually outlines of stars.
I wore it with a a favorite pair of Geox flats that matched the black and pink color scheme. Oh yea and check out my newest tattoo, a magnolia. I'm getting my other foot inked today!
