Drop Waist

Every once in a while during sale season, I come across a piece that makes my heart start to race a little. You know that feeling? Where you start to pray that something is still available in your size? Well, in this post I’m wearing my two finds that gave me that feeling this season. The obvious one being these amazing Alexander Wang heels that I coveted all year and got for such a steal, and the second being this drop waist Zara dress. As someone who frequents Zara on a weekly basis, I assume I’ve seen most pieces they produce each month, but for whatever reason I’d never before laid eyes on this dress during my various visits. Something about the fabric (which is a mix of pullover athletic sweater and neoprene) and the shape just called my name. While borderline too warm to wear during the current summer weather, it is going to be the perfect summer-fall transition piece with the addition of opaque tights come the colder months. What are your favourite pieces that you’ve found during the summer sales? I’d love to know!

Wearing: Zara dress (similar styles here, here and here), Dooney & Bourke purse, Alexander Wang "Liya" heels (also available here and here). x E

  14. Loving BOTH pieces you bought. The shape of that dress looks marvelous on you, and the shoes are perfect. you're going to get so much wear out of them, because of their cut and class factor.

  17. Elizabeth! You look unreal. WAY too hot in Montreal to even think about looking so polished and covered, but awesome look nonetheless. Can't wait to see how you transition it into the colder months. xx
