Summer Soiree

Dress: Ruche, $43 // Shoes: Target: $12 // Necklace: JCPenney, $8

As you can probably tell, I don't keep up with designer fashion, but once every season or so, I become enamoured of a particular piece. This spring, it was this colorful Marc by Marc Jacobs silk dress. When I saw a similar frock on Ruche, I snatched it up immediately and wore it over the weekend when some friends came over for drinks. Perfect for a summer party!

Love it! I was heartbroken when I saw how expensive that Marc by Marc Jacobs dress was a few months ago - I may just have to go buy the Ruche version right now!

WOW! How ironic I was just reading bluebird vintage blog before I flipped over to your lovely little blog and what do I see? This adorable striped dress from Ruche, which I have just entered into a drawing to win in a giveaway Miss James is doing. I love the bright stripes and the easy flow of it…however I am happy to tell you that I think you have styled it much better then Ruche did on their web site! Well done!

Love the dress, but I think it would be nicer on me if it were a little shorter. :)

Love,
