Golden Girl

     The year isn't close to being over yet, but I have to say I think I've already scored my favorite buy of 2011. It's part of the amazing fall/winter Zara collection, so I thought I wouldn't be able to wear it anytime soon. But for a few brief miraculous days this week, the weather turned unseasonably cool, dark, and rainy. It was incredible, especially because it made this outfit possible (and not bat-shit crazy, as it would usually be deemed in August).

Gold/white metallic sweater dress and slim-fit khakis (Zara)

Close-up of the metallic print, plus my favorite gold necklace that's meant to look like a wax seal (from anemone Japan) and a recent favorite nail polish of mine (Chanel's Pearl Drop)

Oh fall weather, can't you please stay?
     I seriously cannot recommend this dress enough... it's lightweight, the metallic print is gorgeous but not over the top, it doesn't wrinkle at all... and the kicker, it was less than $80. Full price. Don't know why this was so cheap but a wispy scrap of a miniskirt was over $100, but I'm sure glad it was!


  1. What a beautiful dress! Isn't Zara the best? I'm so tempted to stop by my local Zara this weekend to try the dress on.

  2. Sometimes their collections are a bit lackluster or way too out there, but overall Zara will forever be my favorite store. Hope you like the dress, like I said I really can't recommend it enough!

  3. late comment is late, but.... after seeing this gold dress on you, i went to zara and tried on all their gold tops. this one looked the best on me, too bad it was also the most expensive one. solution: went to trf and got a gold shirt at a cheaper price. but i will be saving up for this one, hoping they'd still have it on my size. - ann
