clearly navy is the only color i’m interested in wearing in 2016.  i found this gorgeous alaïa dress at a consignment shop in my neighborhood, with the tags still on.  when i tried it on and it fit perfectly without alterations, i knew it was coming home with me.

i have never tried on, let alone owned, an article of clothing that was made with such integrity.  the pleats are so precise and heavy, but at the same time make me want to twirl.  and the jersey is so thick yet comfortable, so i can look good and feel good all day.  i can’t believe the entire dress – even the dentelle – is constructed out of jersey.
