The French Connection

When this floral frock by French Connection arrived on my doorstep this week via JB and Me, I was nothing short of thrilled. (You may have read about jbandme.com in the "100 Under $100" feature in the July issue of Lucky, my favorite issue to date.) I'll be the first to admit that I'm like a kid on Christmas morning when I find that a parcel has arrived. Perhaps it's the anticipation of opening up the box and seeing what's inside; that moment is so much more fun than shopping in stores. Anyone else get that excited?

Blue is my favorite color, so I'm instantly attracted to blue florals, and I've been wearing nothing but floral dresses, skirts, and jumpsuits for the past two weeks. The print is punctuated with the occasional butterfly, and the dress has an easy trapeze shape when worn unbelted. It also includes a favorite design feature of mine - inconspicuous pockets. For casual days, I'll pair with it flat strappy sandals and a denim jacket. For now, though, I'm dressing it up with heels, a corsage-y flower bracelet, and one of my favorite straw fedoras.
