Scandinavian Inspirations

    I have been drooling over the Ivoire dress by Tracy Reese for months.  It's long gone from Anthropologie, but I've been scanning the ebay listings for one that was my size and the right price.  The original price tag was almost $200 and the reviews complained about how fragile it was, so getting a bargain was a must.

    Christmas was coming, I had a little extra to spend and Ivoire finally popped up at the right price.  Although I had to get up at midnight to catch the auction, it was totally worth it to have this beauty.
While I waited for it to arrive I was trying to think of how to wear it.  It's winter after all, time to layer up.  With this color of cream I knew I would pair it with blue and yellow...or maybe yellow and blue...why not both?!

During my search for this dress I also found the Azure lace dress by Tracy Reese.  It is the same lace only this dress is sleeveless and the color combo is blue and white.

At the time I wasn't sure what my size would be.  I've never bought Anthropologie dresses before, so I guessed (incorrectly)  but it's close enough that it's not a problem.  I may have it tailored at some point; the lace is too delicate to do the work myself.  I love the dress alone and can hardly wait to wear it in the summer, but for now I'll wear it with my yellow cardi.
