Layer Cake

My obsession with pleats began last summer when I spotted this dress at H&M and knew I couldn't live without it. It reminds me of a layer cake (which may or may not have been incentive enough to buy the dress). 

{Maje leather jacket, H&M dress, J. Crew flats and earrings, Madewell and Jane Hollinger bracelets, David Yurman Ring}

I love wearing things that remind me of playing dress-up as a little girl, and this dress certainly qualifies. 


I went on a family trip to Paris last summer, and I brought this dress on the vacation hoping I could wear it every single day. I adore its exuberant frills and girlyness. Doesn't it look like something Carrie Bradshaw would wear roaming the streets of Paris?

  3. Yes, it's so "Carrie"! I especially love that you paired it with a leather jacket.

    Did you do something to your hair? It looks curlier today.

  4. Absolutely adore your blog, Miss LA Carrie Bradshaw :) I'm from Wisconsin and only dream of LA everyday, perhaps you can show more of the sights in your pictures? That would be just lovely! Wish I'd been able to snatch up that same dress :)
