Don’t expect a sheath-style dress to have pockets, do ya? I know I didn’t. But as a firm believer that pockets make everything more fun, I was delighted by these. The thrifted moto is also pocket-tastic, although I’ve always found the multitudinous zipper pockets on this jacket style to be a little silly. Do I really want to keep my chap stick and keys in front of my shoulder? Probably not. read more

We’re almost snow-free now – HURRAH! – so I figured I’d better slip in this print-mixed outfit before it looks wildly out of season.

I ordered this dress from the JCPenney website, taking a chance on a size large, but returned it as it was miles too big. Then I just happened to be near a JCP on the day the capsule collection launched and there just happened to be a medium and it just happened to fit beautifully. The dress is made from a heavy-but-stretchy knit, has darling details around the neckline, and is well worth its $39 price tag. read more
