*taupe, yellow & leopard for a sunday brunch*

picture heavy post with a lot of itsy bitsy outfit details…so let’s begin, shall we?  first of all, this dress, can i just gush?  i got it at the last clothing swap i attended…very small & very intimate.  the pleating detail on the neckline & sleeves is just divine.  plus the dress is heavy, so drapey, warm & cozy!  kind of perfect for a warm(ish) day & braving the boston weather with bare legs :)  PLUS IT HAS POCKETS!!!  what girl doesn’t love a dress with pockets?

this little crossbody yellow purse i also got at the same swap.  it’s teeny tiny!  i can literally fit only a few bills, some plastic & maybe a mini lipstick.  i can’t even squish my phone in it!  upon examining it, i found the quality & construction of the leather quite remarkable, especially for a swap item, so i googled the brand which you might have seen on twitter.  turns out, it seems to be a quality belgian brand (on par with hermes) & tiny wallets can go for over $400 while regular handbags can retail for $3000-4000!  pretty amazing swap find, huh?

this leopard coat i’ve had forever…like literally.  it’s from forever 21!  hahaha…get it?  like how i did that?  again, on this warmer day in boston, i can get away with wearing 3/4-length sleeves.

finally, these shoes i was amazed at the resemblance to the fendi shoes spring 2013, one of my favorite accessories lines of late…more in the color combo & the textured heel.  i’m sure i couldn’t afford the fendi shoes even if were available now, so this cute ankle strapped version suits me just fine!  

wearing: bcbg taupe dress (via swap) || delvaux crossbody purse (via swap) || F21 leopard coat || lela rose for payless mustard/taupe heels

whew!  that’s a lot of of outfit for a simple sunday brunch, but it was for my birthday blogger buddy, najeema, so totally worth it!
