Just so we get things straight here, I actually bought this dress before I bought my YSL's, and even though I paid to get it shortened afterwards, it doesn't technically count (okay? okay.). No doubt you've heard about the terrible, very bad, good-for-nothing heat wave, and it's seriously put a damper on my outfits. Thanks goodness I decided to wear this dress though, because I got lost on the train, and was running around Midtown like a blindfolded chicken (is that even an idiom?) trying to find my way to my first day at Radar (which was awesome, btw). The open back kept me cool, and the folding and pleating in the front kept things interesting enough so I didn't feel like I was going to a funeral. The accompanying photograph is from an Elle.com slideshow, but I wore mine today with sandals and a blazer (which I promptly took off as soon as I left the office).
UPDATE ON THE READER/BLOGGER GET-TOGETHER: Meet us in Central Park (at the Summerstage) on Saturday at one--we'll be the ones with the balloons. Hopefully there aren't multiple people with balloons, but if you get hopefully lost or confused, Casey will have her blackberry so you can email her at email@example.com and she'll get right back to you.
One last thing: check me out at the teen vogue blog! Guuhh skadfjlskdfj so exciting
