Loveshackfancy Antonella Dress

If it is warm in Central Asia, it is warm in New York, New Jersey, and North Carolina. Put down the fall product, ladies!

the Loveshackfancy antonella dress

I indulged in this dress during my summer of Loveshackfancy. While I was unable to fit into the largest size available (rude Loveshackfancy, btw) comfortably last year, I knew I loved it enough to hang onto it because I knew I was larger than my typical size.

Cut to this year and less twenty plus pounds. It fits, easily so. The tie shoulder straps are the hardest part to manage. I actually had to enlist my husband to tie them and they still ended up uneven. I will try to retie one in order to match the better tied side. I say that because this is not the last time I will wear this dress. I see myself busting out this style at the beginning of spring next year because the entire world needs to see this indigo dyed dress.

I am wearing a size 14 in the dress. I find that Loveshackfancy sizing is not consistent as I wear a size 10 in some styles and, like this dress, a size 14 in others. For that reason I do not like to buy the brand on final sale.

the Cartier tank watch

After years of sporting my Timex Weekender, I invested in a new watch prior to leaving the states. It is one that I am sure some people think is a luxury “starter” watch, but I love it.

This was not a purchase I took lightly. As always, in order to get comfortable with the price, I did the math on how many hours it would take me to earn the watch at my post-tax hourly break down. Though I considered an entry level version, I really had my eye on this one for awhile and even noted the price increases through the years. I picked the dual tone gold and steel so that I could wear it no matter what jewelry I select on any given day. I even considered the small version, but alas it felt too petite for me.

Finally I thought, the sooner I buy it, the sooner I can wear it and start lowering the price per wear. While I procured my at the designer’s outpost in Tyson’s Gallerias, there are options available on Net-a-Porter and the secondary market. As always, if you chose that route do your due diligence to make sure you are purchasing the real thing.
