I know it’s the dead of winter, but I can’t stop thinking about spring.  My fashion soul mate (http://clotheshorseok.wordpress.com/ – go visit her, she’s fab!) and I both agree that January is the worst month of the year… fashionably speaking.  All fashion magazines are thin as a pin, and all the stores look terrible and are full of last years unwanted messes.  Booo!!!  

So when I saw this dress (at Gap, of all places), I was inspired and dreaming once again of spring. 




The beauty of this dress is: 

a) it’s cheap – $59.50* plus 20% off 

b)  it’s classic 

c) and best of all, it’s reminiscent of Yves St. Laurent’s FAMOUS safari dress 

taken from French Vogue 1968, worn by model Verushchka


I’m thinking this will be a great transition piece to wear into spring.  

Now – wear with blazer, tights, ankle boots 

Later – wear with strappy chunky spring heels and layer on the gold jewelry
