Thursday Threads: Dresses to "Fall" in Love With







I recently subscribed to People Style Watch (can't get enough magazines!)...and while flipping through the pages I noticed myself marking several pages. The first page I marked was for the top dress, a fun metallic number from Victoria's Secret .

The second page I marked was for this gorgeous maxi dress (which I am wearing today) from...JCPENNY! Yes, you read correctly. Again, this number is under $100 and perfect for the fall! You can dress it up or down and it makes a great statement! I'm wearing it with a thick gold belt and red heels today. Also...if you are a fan of flowy dresses...you'll love it. It looks pretty on a windy day (like we are having today in Miami) without going all Marilyn Monroe!

The past dress did not come from People Style Watch, but from the sales rack at J.Crew. I love Ikat, and the color on this dress is so pretty! I think it would work well in the fall, throw on some tights under this frock with booties or oxford flats...a chunky cardigan maybe even a brown belt...done!

So there you have it, what I am coveting this week (and in some cases what I caved in for).


On another note, I will say like most people I was saddened by the news of Steve Jobs passing. My first computer was a mac, in high school--- and then in college I owned the pretty blue iMac...eventually I got an iPod, and our main home computer is a Mac Mini and this past spring I got an iPad for mother's day. He was our Edison, our da Vinci, our Apple guru. May we all be as inspired and inspiring as Mr. Jobs.
