What I Wore: STLFW, Day 1

Saint Louis Fashion Week was a blast! I hope you’ve enjoyed peeking inside the fashion scene here in the Lou. If you missed any of my SLTFW recaps, be sure to check ’em out—Day 1: Spring into Fashion, Day 2: Rebecca Minkoff at Saks, and Day 3: Designer Showcase.

Today’s post shares what I wore to the Spring into Fashion event. The dress is a recent bargain buy from the Loft. I got it for a sale-on-sale price of $40 (orig. $98). To counter the ‘cuteness’ of the dress, I wore my J.Crew Cleo Perforated Mirror Metallic Loafers, J.Crew’s spin on the classic gentleman’s smoking slipper. I kept accessories minimal to allow the striking square eyelet design on the dress to take center stage.

Dress—Loft (on sale)

Shoes—J.Crew (on sale in-store)
Earrings—Kate Spade | similar
Watch—Michael Kors | similar (on sale)
Clutch—Kate Spade | similar (on sale)
Lip—Mac ‘Heroine’ lipstick, Mac “Heroine” lip pencil

    Adorable dress! Does it run true to size? Sometimes Loft sizes can run a little big.

      You know the Loft well. This dress definitely runs big! I went down one size (and contemplated going down two sizes). This is a size 2 and I normally wear a 4. The size 0 was perfect everywhere except the waistline, which fit a tad snug.
