Today's dress isn't what I would consider my typical style... but that's what I like about it. It's a little bohemian, maybe a tad vintage, with the silhouette providing the modern twist. The high neck and long sleeves are off-set by the shorter skirt, and the fabric is a crinkly, old-fashioned lace.

The lace combined with the ivory color screams wedding dress. But even though I keep thinking about Miss Havisham from Great Expectations, I still love the dress. What do you think? Do you like it or do I look like one big doily?

Dress: Shoshanna Heatherley Dress in Ivory

Here is a similar dress available on Neiman Marcus: the Shoshanna Riverside Lace Trumpet-Sleeve Dress.

Both Shoshanna dresses feature trumpet sleeves, also referred to as bell sleeves, which are all the rage right now. I tend not to embrace "trendy" fashion ploys, but I do like the bohemian element these large, full sleeves bring to the normally feminine and corporate styles I wear.

Shoes: Kate Spade New York Fresia Patent Platform Sandals (no longer available)

I'm definitely looking tired today... Is it only Wednesday? The week feels long already. At least January is almost over and the days seem to be getting a little longer. It's not pitch black before 6 p.m. anymore! Spring will definitely be here before we know it.
