And It Was All Yellow

I wore this out to dinner with my cousin to one of those farm-to-table restaurants. I had the best foie gras ever (including France) and my Bloody Mary-ish martini was so good. This dress was probably a poor choice for dinner– it’s not forgiving through the waist and I thought I was going to have to roll out of the restaurant after dinner. I used my turtle pin to hold the sash in place because it looks better with only one knot, although it always comes undone then.

My favorite way to carry a clutch is with the chain still attached. I just drape it over the top and carry as usual. I like the way the chain looks and I can still hang the bag on a chair at dinner instead of searching for place to put it or sticking it on the chair against my back.

Diane von Furstenberg dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Rebecca Minkoff bag, old turtle pin.

    I. Love. This. Outfit. First of all, your dress is DVF, and it’s bright yellow, and it’s flattering, and it’s amazing. Second of all, you bag if Rebecca Minkoff, and it’s yellow, and it’s super cute (and I’ve said that a million times, but it’s the truth). Third of all, monochromatic yellow is such a great idea. LOVE IT!

      This dress is definitely a favorite of mine, I got it on super sale at yoox
      last year (it’s actually S/S 09). I was hesitant about carrying the yellow
      bag with the yellow dress because the colors don’t exactly match but I think
      it turned out pretty good.

    Hi! I’m new to your blog via the links at Academichic for Dress Your Best. This outfit is amazing! The yellow is gorgeous on you, and the tiny turtle pin makes me want to squeal forever. That’s both genius and practical! Also, the light is gorgeous in these pictures. (I know, I’m just gushing all over the place, but these pictures and your outfit inspire me!)

      Thank you! I love the light at sunset during the summer so I try to take photos around 7 or later whenever I can. I just put up my first post for Dress Your Best Week and I’ll definitely be checking out yours as well!

      I love yellow!  I seriously wish there were more yellow things around to buy, because I would get them all.  

      So on second thought more yellow things might not be the best idea…

    Smart thinking leaving the chain – I hate not having anywhere to put my bag at restaurants. But some don’t even have a chain at all. Square one.

    The yellow dress is just wonderful, it reminds me of a kimono.

      I definitely have clutches without chains too… and I usually end up sitting on them hahahaa.  I should totally try this dress with a different belt one day, I never wear it any other way.  I totally see the kimono-ish lines now. I definitely never noticed before!
