The Other Black Dress

This is my original black jersey Alexander Wang dress from the F/W 2010 collection. I hugely regret not buying more of this collection. I don’t know what I was thinking. I clearly was not because I’m still trying to track down pieces of that collection.

I actually like this dress better than my other one, but I wear it less. This one always seemed a little bit fancier to me. I love the built-in scarf– so many ways to wear it, and it’s also just fun to play with. This is the first time I’ve worn something over this dress. It turned out much better than I thought it would, so I’ll have to style it again with one of my other black sweater things.

    oh wow, those dresses are very similar, if you hadn’t pointed it out, I probably wouldn’t have noticed it was a different one. I actually I just though you picked up the longer drapey part and stuck it into the cardigan or something.

      I think dresses like this are going to become my signature look as I get older… now I just have to save up to buy them! The top isn’t lace, it’s a pebbly burnout pattern. But lace would be really nice. Must look out for something like that!
