Polar Opposites

I'm really liking my new "Things I Want" category. It's a lovely excuse to be indulgent. This installment consists of two items that couldn't possibly be more different and more desirable. These jeans are the perfect faded wide-legs. They're nice and easy, but the simple look and wide seams make them kind of elegant as well:

This dress is just divine. I love Nina Ricci. I love Oliver Theyskens. I love it.

The problem? I can't have the jeans because they have a 31" inseam (as in, three inches too short). I can't have the dress because it's $1,800 (on sale!). Someone may need to go thrifting today. . .

The dress is very fifties. I think you should find something like it pretty easily.

The dress IS very fifties, you're right, but it's really the colors that get me. The silhouette is a bit conservative for my normal tastes, but something about the grey, yellow, and cream--wow.

And thrifting in NYC can actually be pretty picked over. Fun still, but often bizarre, isolated midwestern towns are the absolute best!
