Back to Reality (See Jane Wear)

Tibi dress (via Gilt), H&M belt, F21 shoes, Essie 'Really Red' nail polish
Another weekend has come and gone, in the blink of an eye; I swear, they get shorter and shorter as you get older.  As I mentioned on Friday, I spent the weekend with some girlfriends in Atlanta.  I had such a great time and experienced case of the Sunday Blues like no other when traveling home to Chicago.  Because of my propensity to get ready at the very last minute before a night out, I didn't snap photos of my friends (or myself) in their outfits, as planned.  When I came home early Sunday, I simply recreated the outfit I wore on Saturday night (i.e. one piece of clothing--a dress) and had Eric snap some pictures (please tell me some of you have done this before?).
 

Also, you might be wondering about the shoes I've been wearing nonstop.  Yes, I do have other shoes, and no, I don't wear them.

If it is not broke, don't try and fix it.

You look gorgeous!! I love this dress. I own nothing Tibi, but if I could fill my wardrobe with two designers, Tibi would be one of them (the other would be Diane von Furstenberg!) Always such pretty dresses! And yes, I absolutely re-create looks for photos MOST of the time. My latest post, for example. Yup, dressed back up in sequins on a Sunday morning. I had to scrub the bar stamp off my hand. ;) Classy.

Hey, if the shoes work, wear 'em. :)

I haven't done this only because I'm too lazy. If I don't get pictures the first time around, I'll wait until I wear the outfit again. Lazy is me.

Marie a la Mode said...

This is a gorgeous dress and you look gorgeous IN it! And no, you're not the first one to recreate an outfit ; )

LOVE Tibi. Too cute, Anna!

Valerie said...

Gorgeous dress and it looks amazing on you! I've been awful at hitting up Gilt 9am (PST) on the dot. So many times I've checked and (of course) things I would have loved to pick up are totally sold out!

Style-Pursuit said...

Yes, happens quite a lot, because I want my outfits to look as fresh and ironed as possible... :o)
This dress is awesome!

Alicia said...

And girl you are far more ambitious than me. I curl up in a ball and try for plan 2 with the camera. oy

No worries, this is how I do a solid 90% of my outfit posts. That dress is absolutely darling, my dear... Those cutouts are perfection! And I love your ribbed tights.

I do it all the time! the outfits I wear to church hardly get to see anyone (esp anyone from school that would recognize the repeat) so those get worn sunday monday often.

silvergirl said...

Yes, I do that all the time, but am trying to get better at remembering to capture the moments
Love the dress and stripe tights

PursuitOfLLT said...

Jammer said...

I'm convinced that as the weekends get shorter, mondays get longer...ick.

PearlsAndGreenTea said...

I actually have not done that before but have been tempted to many times! Too often, life gets in the way and I totally forget to take outfit pics! BTW...I always see you and other bloggers wearing really cute f21 shoes. But when I actually go there, I never end up trying them on. How is the quality?

Hi @pearlsandgreentea and @2yorkstreet

The quality of the F21 shoes is surprisingly not bad. I've worn them A LOT this winter and Chicago weather can really beat up your shoes. They're actually really comfortable too (i.e. I can wear them to work all day without wanting to off myself). But, I can't speak to any other shoes as they're the only pair I own.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

That dress was seriously made for you girl! Love it paired with the tights and of course the booties! Perfect. xo

cryskay said...

i am head over heels in love with that dress! you have such great taste - i'm following you! xo

sharonlei said...

xx Love & Aloha

you look wonderful! I love the dress, and that you wear your fave pair of shoes proudly. I am the same, I have practical shoes, but, they don`t make me sway my hips the way my leopard wegdes do lol. am following you :)

bosco2579 said...

I love that dress. But I pretty much love antying by Tibi. I especially love that you got it off of Gilt. They really are the best.

Chloe said...

Oooh, gasped when I saw this Tibi dress on you! It's one of my favorites from over the Fall/Winter season, and you totally rock it!

kate @ undeniable style said...

Ah, I'm having reverse buyer's remorse. I almost bought this and didn't. I took an office poll and people hated it. Should have gone with my gut; it looks fab on you!
