The Blankey Dress

When Michal was in New York we spent a chunk of our shopping day at Buffalo Exchange where I found this gorgeous Stella McCartney sweater sitting there on the rack with a $32 price tag on it. In the dressing room I said something like, "It feels like floating in clouds of butter." Michal told me I had to buy it. I'm happy I did because its like a baby blankey as a dress. The super soft, but light fabric feels like rolling myself up in my baby blankey as a little girl. Luckily its designed quite a bit better than wrapping myself up like a sausage.
After buying it Saturday I wore it on both Sunday and Monday and no less than 4 people came up to me to tell me how beautiful my sweater is. With the knitted tiers, the floppy bow, and the slightly A-line cut this is easily an item I will never have buyer's remorse about and never be uncomfortable wearing.

This is one of my all time favorite YouTube videos. I have a blankey, his name is Blankey (and he may or may not be in my backpack). Maybe one day I'll photograph him in all his raggedy glory. For now, content yourselves with this advertising gem.

  6. YAY YAY YAY YAY THE SWEATER YAY It's even better than I remember!

    Also I love that photo of you coming out of the house- your hair's all swoopy and sassy.

    Also love that video.  I never had a blankey, but I had a pink stuffed raccoon named Racky (creative) and I carried him all over the place and he got a big hole in his butt (like right under his tail it was funny) and his stuffing started falling out everywhere.  He was my Blankey equivalent.  He's kicking around somewhere, now I want to find him!

  7. That is an incredible find. It looks so cozy, so lounge-worthy with leggings and a cup of hot cocoa. I'm envious! I once found a gorgeous Stella McCartney blouse for only $50 dollars at a vintage shop but I tried it on and I looked just like Captain Jack Sparrow, only with short hair and no facial hair. Sigh...I guess some clothes are just prettier on a hanger...
