what a cutie patootie

i absolutely adore this babydoll dress. it is apparently a popular choice for the olympus fashion week attendees, as documented by the sartorialist... so when i was walking along the west village the other day, i had to stop in a boutique to try it on.

the verdict? well... its definitely nice... but for around $300? there was no lining, the fabric wasn't extremely luxurious, and it was just too poofy. i felt and looked preggers in it. who knows if i should blame it on the dress or too many cookies. but everytime i see it on that slim and perfectly proportioned albeit headless mannequin, i fall in love with it all over again.

it looks simple enough to replicate so i guess my only option now is to keep my eyes peeled and see if i can find a cheaper and less poofy alternative elsewhere. or maybe buy some fabric and see if i can crank one out on my own.

meanwhile... i shall shop for some other babydoll fall dresses!
