So, I almost passed on this dress. I walked out of the store and left it behind, because it wasn’t on my monthly shopping list and I was trying to be good. Bwahaha! But seriously, how can anyone walk out on a $50 silk dress when it looks this cute? Impossible, I say. Apart from the fun geo print, and the lovely colours, this dress has a little backstory: it was from the Marc by Marc Jacobs 10th anniversary collection. Being the MbMJ fan that I am, that little tidbit tickled my collector’s fancy. And here we are.

Seriously, how cute is it?

So cute. Is it a little “young” for a 34-year old? Ehhh … you might have a point. But! I feel like a 22-year old most days (and 13 the rest of the time), so I’m technically dressing for my inner lamb, not the outer mutton. Or, um, something like that. Cute dress, you guys! Can never pass up a cute dress.

  1. While i totally get not wanting to get something you weren’t planning on, I think you made the right decision. Not only did you get a designer piece for a killer price, but it’ll be so versatile you’ll wonder why you ever wanted to pass in the first place

    And yes, I’m a huge shopping enabler.

    • Girl, I’m not complaining! Enable away. (Also, send me all your clothes because they are too cute and I want them all. Starting with that stripy skirt, youknowwhatimtalkingabout.)

  2. That dress is super cute…great pattern, the colors look good on you, and a flattering shape. What’s not to love?

  3. oh. my. gosh! i am never into tribal/geo prints, but i would not have been able to leave this behind. the shape is incredible, it’s so flattering (and probably is still flattering if you eat a burger). it can be dressed up or down obviously–those shoes are also To Die For. i don’t at all think this dress is too young. i feel like a 22 year old would feel grown up in a dress this nice, and nothing about the print says “i shop at forever 21” nor “i bought this in the Misses section.” you nailed it, once again.

    • Wait. Soooo, you’re saying I could pass for a 22 year old? Girl, I love you. You be dead wrong, but I love you for it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I really like this dress on youโ€”and props to you for finding a jean jacket that hits at the right length and doesn’t screw up your proportions!!

    • Thanks lady! I spent many years looking for this jacket, and it’s my go-to in the summer. It works with pretty much every summer dress ever.

  5. You’re 34? Gosh I’d never have guessed. I’m 31 so I’d have said my age or a smidge younger tbh. I’d wear the cute dress for sure. It’s not too young at all ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You’re so sweet! I haven’t really been hung up on my age since I turned 30, but I think it’s mostly because I just can’t grasp that I’m an official adult now ๐Ÿ™‚
