Fashion File: Little Black Anthro Dress

3/12/2013


Last week I was up in Los Angeles for the Design Bloggers Conference and on Monday night my employer, Lulu & Georgia, hosted an intimate dinner with about eight other bloggers at Cecconi's (ah-mazing food by the way). Anyway, I had a minor fluttering of the heart when trying to conceive of pretty outfits to wear that wouldn't look boxy and awkward with the Baby Boy Bump (aka BBB). And then Anthropologie stepped into my life. Well, it's been there for a while, but I totally fell in love with this Taryn Crepe black shift dress with little gold buttons. My talented co-worker Michaela (of Michaela Noelle Designs) snapped a few photos before we walked to dinner.

More photos after the jump


I love the bright, bold colors on the pretty baubles from Anthropologie and Baublebar and I couldn't resist the brilliant gold heels from H&M (only $24)!
{Photography is by Michaela, who has one of the cutest blogs around (yes I'm biased, she's a friend and co-worker, but I'm not lying). Also, here's a wonderful wrap-up of the conference that she posted on her blog last Friday. Love the photo of her and Barbara Barry!

Ha ha BBB, love it. That dinner sounded wonderful. I would love to go to an interior design blogger conference one day. I have been to fashion ones, but not yet interior design. That dress is great, good choice. I was in the Anthropologie in Chelsea Market this Sunday and bought a gray and chartreuse striped mid sleeve jersey T and I love it, and it was on sale!
