Limoncello

Dresses are the easiest go-to piece when you want something fast and simple - I've worn dresses all week, coincidence? - one item, and bam! outfit done.

I wanted something simple there's that word again and fun today, so this cheapie new dress answered my fashion prayers. It makes me think that the weather outside is not also sunny but balmy, and I can kick up my feet as I lazily lounge on a porch swing and relax by the verandah with a sweating class of limoncello, i.e., my idea of grown-up lemonade, as any reference to a blackberry only revolved around some sort of pie.

Now if someone could just up the temp by about twenty degrees and gift me a great big ole victorian on a bluff overlooking the water with a porch and swing - and call Giada to make me some limoncello while we're at it - then everything would be all right for a Thursday.

  2. I just bought the exact same dress for myself and my friend Farrah last week Lisa! I love it so so much and it is fabulous on you! I feel very Jackie O in it! I love it with the gray and red and will more than likely shamelessly copy you :)

  3. You look fabulous! I'm so frustrated though, because I don't live near a F21 and I've been waiting for this dress to show up online for days :( I see it on the Love21 main page, but can't find it online :'(

  4. I wanted that dress.. I saw it on the site (in the little ad pictures), but it was no where to be found to purchase. :( I haven't been to F21 in such a long time, but I think I may need to make a pit stop there this weekend. I need this dress!

    You look great Lisa. And if I've never told you, you have a beautiful smile! It's so cheery. :D

    xx Love & Aloha

  17. I could have sworn that was an Anthro dress! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that it was a F21 dress. It looks great on you. I can't believe the length is decent. Love it!

  22. Wow... hard to believe that dress is Forever21. When I saw it I thought it might be Antrho... very cool it's F21 because that means it was way more affordable. Looks great with the gray!

  23. stop the presses! wow- this is awesome, and looks awesome on you and we're all so awesomely jealous and happy for you right now...!

    gee, I have 2 forever21's now, and they certainly don't have this beauty...

  24. That dress is so versatile! I love how it reminds me of yellow houses being painted that way. I know it's weird but I like it!

  27. Lisa, I love this dress. I will check my local F21 to see if we have it here. I love the neckline and the cap sleeves. It looks great with a little cardi too!

  28. You look so chic and cute. Oh How I wish I could wear F21 dresses without showing off my southern goods. They need to add at least 10 inches onto the length to make them right for me. You, however, are rocking this show. Perfectly.
