Gilt Group top...in love


This week I wore one of my new favorite shirts! ...or dress if you want to call it that.  I'm a member of Gilt Group, which you should all check out, and I came across this in a BCBGeneration sale a few weeks back through one of their emails. Jane Randall was the model for this particular sale, and she looked quite a bit better than I do in this!  She was on America's Next Top Model last cycle and was probably my second favorite...if not my favorite in general (it's hard to decide). I love the pockets with zippers on the side of the shirt and the zipper at the top. I also really like that it's big! I know I'm not supposed to wear big clothes because it makes me look bigger than I actually am, but they're just so much more comfortable! And I always feel more confident with a big top and small bottoms.

details:
top: BCBGeneration from Gilt Group
pants: Express
shoes: Vera Wang for Kohls

You know what's weird? I used to NEVER wear such monochromatic outfits. I always had something with color, and now I wear outfits like this pretty often. I do have some red earrings on with this outfit, but it's still mostly gray and black. I don't know what's happened to me since I graduated college...I hope this doesn't mean I'm more boring.

Happy Friday, friends!

awesome find. I love that top (and those shoes!!!). Aren't those fashion communities awesome? I think I'm already in two or I would be joining Gilt Group on the spot.

Doesn't Gilt Group rock!? Great top. I like how it gathers by the zippered pockets!

I also love the quote you posted above. :)

This is totally my favorite color palette and I love everything about this - from the drapey details on your top to the strappy details on your shoes. Well done!
