Leah Goren Cat Dress + Mint Headband

You know this dress, don't you? It was designed by Leah Goren, once sold at Anthropologie, was worn by every blogger for a while -- and I found it sitting in a thrift store last week. Ever since this dress came out a few years ago, I couldn't help but dream about it. I know it was everywhere for a while, but I'm a big fan of Leah Goren's illustrations and despite its immense popularity, I needed it in my life. Alas, I could never afford it when it for sale at Anthropologie. Even scouring for it on eBay years later led to results no lower than $85. I eventually lost hope.

Miraculous, I popped into a Salvation Army with my best friend, Whitney, last week and there it was. I have to be honest here. I didn't find it mtyself. I heard Whitney exclaim, "oh my god, I'm getting this" from the other side of the dress rack, and when I looked over to see what she was holding, it was this dress. My eyes widened and I ran over and reached in to look at the tag. I started rambling about what the dress was, how long I had been looking for it, and how much it originally retailed for. I did this until she sighed and handed it to me. A true act of selflessness if I've ever seen one. Still, I was skeptical as it was a size smaller than I normally wear. As luck would have it, it just happens to run a size too large. Miracle dress. It's a miracle dress, and it's mine now.

This weekend, as all weekends are, was great. We celebrated my brother's birthday, and Jon and I picked up our friend Adam from the airport. Going to LAX is never fun, but being in LA is a good excuse to get breakfast at one of our favorite places, The Pantry. I'm still full from pancakes.

  3. Fantastic find! And what a nice friend to give up this dress. It's so super cute. I definitely remember seeing it years ago but I think it's still just as in style as it was then.
