When Proenza Meets Alaïa

Sorry I've been gone for so long. If you haven't noticed, I'm a horrible manager of time and have yet to find a balance between school, work, friends, and life, but here's a little something something to break the silence. Over the weekend I instagrammed a headless, filtered version of the below photo and ended up captioning it "When Proenza Meets Alaïa" after trying to finish my own thought proved to be too difficult. For when Proenza meets Alaïa, a lot of really great things can happen. This became evident as soon as both were on my body. T'was magical.

This picture does the dress absolutely no justice but it's tweed, sweet, and fits like a dream. It's structured top with pleated bottom gives the dress the perfect fit and flare silhouette. It's cute and sophisticated, all at the same damn time (yes, that was a Future reference). I know it's a bit early to start talking about graduation, but if this dress came in a softer palette of colors (nudes in this case), it would be puuurrrfect for the occasion. Absolutely purrfect. To complete the outfit, instead of going with a classic pump or bootie, I reached for these Alaïa beauties. There are few things I love more than the contrast between a conservative dress and a sexy shoe, especially when its these shoes. Well Chicistanis, I'm off to start packing for Miami. Wooohoooo sun! Can you tell I'm in desperate need of it?
