^ love your dress stealthmodesteph! I must say, your Paris shopping trip was quite successful!

I like Vanessa Bruno in theory, but I feel like her clothes are made for the tall only ... some of the tops and dresses so long in the torso. Although I wore a VB dress today and think I might wear another one tomorrow ... maybe those work b/c they are more empire waist. I agree with you stealthmode, some of her clothes do look a bit flimsy to the point of shapeless.

yeah...i agree...

i think that is why i never wore the grey top i got in paris..
*that's going on ebay...

it's so gorgeous but i am particularly shortwaisted so it doesn't work on me..
so no matter how much i love some of her stuff...
i simply cannot wear them...

i do best with her empire pieces or dropped waist...
and i do have a couple of pairs of pants that i have gotten an incredible amount of use from...

unfortunately the fit on the pant has not been consistent...
which is disappointing because i thought i had found an ongoing source for great fitting pants...
but it turned out not to be ...

adoref....
this is the top in question...

i tried it on again...
i don't know..
i really love it...

i think maybe it's just the wrong size for me..
it's size 1 and i should have gotten a 2...
but i don't think they had one so i just got it anyway..

On a side note, stealthmodesteph,your blog is great and in my favorites now! Love the Nine West sneakers and your outfits are gorgeous!

I have the same problems with VB's clothes.
In theory, I like what she does but there's always something that's not quite right for me.
But, I bought an empire jumper dress on ebay, though I still didn't received it, I think and hope it will fit me right...

^thank-you for the kind comments about my blog! i am in las vegas right now for work (yuck!) so I haven't had time to post recently.

that dress looks cute! I bet it will look great with a lot of things- a sweater dress is one thing I wish I bought this fall/winter, but now it is too late- time to think about spring wardrobe!

Luckyme, I didn't take the shots. The pics come from a Flickr.

Actually, Vanessa Bruno's new collection leaves a little indifferent... lucky for my bank account though!
