I bought this dress several months ago, in fact after journaling my wardrobe and writing this post about it. However, I never featured it on the blog until now. A dress like this isn't good for the office, but especially as I have gotten older I enjoy dressing up for social occasions and have worn this dress to concerts, parties at friends' houses, and even dinner with Karl.  The most recent time I pulled this dress from my closet I realized it's the same rusty orange color as this faux fur stole/scarf/thingie I purchased at H&M many moons ago (previously seen here) and just had to pair the two!

    I really like this dress. It looks better on you than it does on the model on the MK site. On a non-curvy lady it looks kind of dowdy and boring, but on a curvy lady it is flattering and dramatic. The snowy setting definitely helps with the drama!

    And so it was that Snow Queen Alison ruled her forest subjects with wisdom, compassion, and generosity. All hail Queen Alison! Long live the Queen!

    You look like an exotic snow princess! I love the color of the dress, the pattern and, most of all, that the faux fur scarf matches perfectly! You are, indeed, the epitome of fashion in this outfit.

    already commented on facebook, but wanted to add here that i absolutely love that there is a fantasy element to this shoot/outfit. we both work in the world of practical, everyday style so it’s just like such a breath of fresh air to see you in something that feels totally ethereal andalmost not even of this world. LOVE!

    Oh. My. GODDESS. I WANT THAT DRESS!!!!!!!!!! Only available up to a size 12 now (mourns). Please, I beg of you, Allie, if you ever consider purging this dress from your closet, give me the opportunity to buy it.

      They have it in regular leopard too, I know they have it on the MK site and I think on 6pm. Stalk eBay, I wouldn’t be surprised if it shows up there and if I do sell I’ll let you know!

      Seriously, I love this dress so much I wore it to a concert where my friends were all in jeans and tees. I wore it once to Target because I could!

      Thank you! I must have been a funny sight giant walking with my dress to my knees to get there without footprints! 🙂

    This dress is totally not my style, but it looks amazing on you! It is so funny to me sometimes that I’ve been reading your blog for the past couple of years even though we have very little in common…yet I still enjoy reading and still receive inspiration! Keep up the good work!

    • March 11, 2016 / 12:59 pm

      Thanks Beth! And I am the same, I follow a lot of bloggers with which I have little in common but still enjoy. Glad to be one, and glad to have you here! <3
