For now

I hastily nabbed this Miu Miu 2008 dress (really a top-skirt coordinate) as soon as I saw it on sale; the collection was one of my favorites, with plunging ballet-inspired necklines and full Lolita skirts. Sadly, the dress is two sizes too big (the top is larger than the seller marked), so I’m still debating whether or not to pass it on to a better owner.

On Friday I’m leaving for New Orleans, one of my favorite cities (it’s also where my family is from). I’m looking forward to staying in a haunted French Quarter hotel, eating beignets, listening to jazz, and drinking hand grenades. I can’t wait – I’ve been counting down the days for weeks!

Also, I want to thank my sister Lulu for fixing my hair and putting up with countless photoshoots for this blog. She’s moving across the country in a few weeks and I’m not sure what I’m going to do without her!

    I remember this collection well. I’m pretty sure it was this collection that got me into fashion. I spent hours scouring the Web trying to find a dress ‘inspired’ by the one with the stripes on the skirt! This dress suits you so well, any chance you could just get it tailored to your size?

    You look beautiful! In spite of the dress being two sizes too big, you look amazing in it! I would keep it. You could always get it professionally altered & it seems worth it if it’s something you really love!

    I never would’ve guessed the dress was two sizes too big! It looks amazing on you.

    It’s so adorable! :) But I’d say if you don’t 100% love it, save the money for another special piece. Things pop up on the outnet/yoox all the time. I just picked up a miu miu skirt from therealreal and I’m hoping the sizing will be perfect because it’s just stunning. Fingers crossed. Have fun on your trip!

    What beautiful photos! Such a bummer about the top not fitting. Have you looked into getting it altered? I would have such a hard time giving up something from that collection!

    Hi Catherine,

    I just stumbled upon your blog and I just wanted to say that you’re one of the most stunning people I’ve ever seen! Your beauty’s kinda old-school, almost vintage-like, yet completely natural and youthful. You’re so eloquent as well and I’m obsessed with your blog.(: Definitely gained a subscriber.
