Every so often you find a brand and want pretty much everything from it. COS is one of those brands for me, as is Toast, and & Other Stories. I very rarely buy new clothing (I am lucky that I get gifted a few pieces here and there) but when I saw this Other Stories dress I knew that I needed it.
I have a general rule of thumb that if I see something that I instantly want, I don’t buy it immediately. I wait two weeks and see if I still want it. If I do, then it goes on my wishlist. A good example of this would be my Birkenstocks. I love those ugly sandals. I’d wanted a pair for ages so they made it to my list. I kept an eye on spring sales last year, and when they went on sale I grabbed them up.
I usually shy away from maxi dresses as I usually don’t think that they suit me, but I was inexplicably drawn to this piece. I loved it when I put it on, but I had a tiny sliver of doubt in my mind. I had to have Sam reassure me that I didn’t look like an extra from “Little House on the Prairie”. (First I had to explain what “Little House on the Prairie” was.)
I feel like an autumnal Goddess in these photos. Thank you to Yorkshire for your beautiful foliage!
