Sunshine and lollipops

It's a gorgeous day outside and I'm celebrating both it, and a fun graduation ceremony (not mine) with some summery staples.

Not sure if I've talked about Mayle on here before, the designer Jane Mayle made some of the prettiest clothes I've ever seen before she decided to close up shop. I would adore owning a pair of her shoes someday, but until then... the clothes will have to do. This dress was of course and eBay find, and I had to haggle with the seller (who wears my size and has the most awesome clothes, but marks things up what I consider to be a bit outrageously), but here it is in it's beauty.

The shoes were a super-bargain Off 5th find when the first opened nearby. I don't think I'll ever find as good of a deal as I got on these again ($60 marked down from $600).

Fit on the dress is small. This is a 10, the largest size the brand makes... and while I am still carrying a bit of "winter weight", even when I'm not it's pretty snug.

The shoes also run small. These are a 37.5, and I could have worn a 38 comfortably. The toe-box is pretty wide on these, so it makes them very comfortable combined with the lower heel height.


  1. You look so pretty! I love this dress and the shoes were such a great deal.

  2. those shoes are the best color! jealous of your bargain!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the dress and the shoes. You always find the best deals!

  4. i love Mayle stuff- i also wish she hadn't closed up shop! the dress looks gorgeous on you, and the shoes were a great find.

  5. Oh, you look so pretty! You have great style!
