if i was a rich girl...

Stellamc >> See, I'd have all the money in the world...plus this whole outfit by Stella McCartney (right).  If only...

I love that big chunky oversized sweaters are experiencing a revitalization, but this sweater dress has just taken the cake.  The thickness of the knit, the big oversized sleeves, and the turtleneck make it look so comfy.  I love sweaters that have turtlenecks like that because I can nestle my head down into it -- it's so cozy, like curling up under your comforter on a cold winter's morning.  Not very often is something that looks so good so comfortable at the same time.  And surprisingly, the dress has great shape on the body -- I tend to have such problems with knits stretching out and losing their shape.  The length is good for wearing it as a minidress, or for a warmer/more conservative look, with trousers.  Overall, it's just one of those looks that is very simple and yet intensely chic. 

Boot_2 And then there's the boots.  Or hot sex on your legs, as I like to call it.  The remind me very much of these true-to-the-era Victorian boots that I fell in love with at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  Of course they're missing the millions of tiny little buttons, and they're a little higher (the ones I saw were mid-calf), but the slim-fitting shape and color scheme is definitely very similar.  The leather just looks so beautiful and supple, and I love the tie-up detailing at the very top, reminiscent of a corset.  I think that's what I like about this outfit so much -- the dress is very sixties, and the boots are very Edwardian-inspired, making the juxtaposition of the two very modern and streamlined.
