When this little black dress arrived in the mail from Le Tote I was beyond excited. I immediately noticed the quality material and craftsmanship. Upon inspecting the tag I realized that it was French Connection. No wonder it felt like an expensive dress, it was! Well at least it was expensive to me. I usually save most of my money for my designer handbag addiction so there is little left for designer clothes and shoes. Darn. Don't get me wrong though, I love all sorts of designer fashion and would love to be dripping in labels from head to toe but that simply isn't practical. Instead I find it fun to mix pricey and penny conscious items together. In all honesty I've never owned anything French Connection so I simply could not wait to slip this baby on. Once I did I was blown away again because it fit like a glove! I felt like it was specifically tailored for my figure and I instantly began rationalizing in my head why I should purchase it. As a member of Le Tote I can buy this classic and timeless dress at a discounted price. When I think of how often I can wear it, that it will never go out of style and how great the quality is it seems like a no brainer. What do you think, should I buy this dress?
For some added fun I wore my hot pink peep-toe bow pumps which perfectly match my Louis Vuitton Rose Pop Vernis Alma Bag. This pink purse was a gift to myself in 2009 and my only regret is that I did not purchase more in this color. Louis Vuitton has not released anything in this color since then and I really hope that they bring it back one day! I was lucky enough to snatch up the carry-on suitcase, makeup bag, ballerina flats and wooden wedges in Rose Pop but I doubt I will ever get enough of this color. The vibrant pink is such a happy color that I could stare at it for days.
