makie fall



i think it's the slanted front pockets that make me love this dress. a long chunky cardigan or knit vest, perhaps, and bookts, of course. normally i don't wear black, but i love the plaid on this dress.

there is also a tonal brown stripe to soften the black

that is such a nice dress. the makie site calls it navy, but it does appear black in the pic.

love the photo of you and leon at the arboretum, cute outfits too.

ah, navy (and brown), no wonder i like it so much!

you wouldn't believe how many times i would have to compare the black and the navy socks for customers when i worked at nordstrom.

at any rate, i covet the dress...

I am completely in love with that dress! Somehow perfect for summer and for winter. If only there was a way to track down Makie in London.

you're right, black plaid is hard to pull off, but the size of the plaid works, making it look really cozy. i could totally use this in my fall wardrobe.
