Bespoke Moo Moo

That's what I would call this particular item of clothing. I spotted it at Zara a few months ago and fell in love with it immediately. I have no idea what possessed me to buy it, but I'm glad I did. It's so comfy and appropriate for meeting-free work days. I'll probably wear it with a thin, black turtleneck and boots when it gets colder.

Definitely a wise purchase, lady. It's highly romantic, and utterly gorgeous.

June Shin said...

Cute dress! I think it'll look great with boots!

Franco said...

I can so see that with a dark jacket and boots/leather leggins.

Mrs. R said...

Oooh, full marks for a perfectly executed MooMoo! I didn't know it was possible, but you look amazing. What an inspiration...

Terri said...

It looks like a hidden treasure you find when you give it a chance in the fitting room. Excellent choice! :-)

Hot Bot said...

Moo Moo. It sounds cute.
I think we spell it mu'u mu'u down here.

Sal, I'm so glad you think so, because I got some stares when I wore it ;).

June, boots it is!

Franco, a dark jacket is a great idea and it means I have to go shopping ;) !

Mrs. r, you're so sweet! The best part about the dress is that it's so comfy!

Terri, you're so right. I was doubtful when I first picked it off the rack, but after trying it on and realizing I didn't have to suck in my stomach while wearing it made it a winner!

Hot Bot, mu'u mu'u is technically the correct term, but I choose to go with the slang version ;).

Oh I love it! Especially the detail- it reminds me of ric-rac. It may be moo moo-ish, but it's an absolutely perfect moo moo and you pull it off well.

That is a cool dress, CL. Nice details.

Tell you what I love your new blog header.

I don't know if you remember.. when I first started reading your blog.. I was the one complained about the pink in the image... :P

That's a lovely dress!

bonjouritsjinah said...

I love the dress! I miss Zara a lot... Oh and re: The Fall, I totally rented it after that post you guys made. That's actually the new Manfriend and he made his costume after I made him watch it with me.

glory said...

rally love the details of the edges, you look pretty... kisses

enc said...

You make that dress happen.

AsianCajuns said...

I'm actually really surprised everyone likes the dress - yay!

Octane guy, you're actually very observant! Lauren just added this feature yesterday. We have a total of four headers.

Songy, I totally forgot about that! Too funny!

In her twenties, yep! There's a Zara in Lenox. I hope they open up another location in midtown so I don't have to go to the mall to shop there!

Jinah, that is too cool. And the costume is awesome!

I take back all the terrible things I've said about moo moos. I think it's just an unfortunate word for an item of clothing not worn by cows.
