like a crazy quilt star
Rifle Paper Co. is one of my all time favorite companies, which is saying a lot since they are known for their non-clothing items, and clothing is clearly what I spend most of my money on. I own a weekly planner, a yearly planner, two notepads, two calendars, some notebooks, and several phone cases, all designed by Rifle. I’m a real sucker for floral prints & feminine color schemes, so their products are the creme de la creme in my book. So naturally, when several clothing items designed by Rifle randomly showed up on Anthropologie’s website last year, I went…a little berserk. The only problem was, the pieces were all a bit pricey & I was and am on a budget. So regrettably, I had to exercise some self-discipline and walk away.
A few months later, and much to my surprise, this dress popped up in Anthro’s sale section. However, much to my dismay, the floral prints were all sold out, and all that was left in my size was this funky quilted number. I like patterns a lot, don’t get me wrong, but this one is a bit more eccentric than I generally gravitate towards. But the power that Rifle Paper Co. holds over me prevailed and I gave in – and I’m so glad that I did! This dress is so fun & effortless, and it can easily be dressed up or down, making it a wardrobe staple. The unique print, although daring, is also great for making a statement, and the shape & material are unbelievably comfortable as well.
Sometimes its good to try things that are out of your comfort zone. You might be pleasantly surprised by your reaction!
