the lady living a fairy tartan tale.

 
Rugby by Ralph Lauren tartan plaid peplum dress | Forever 21 turtleneck | Forever 21 thigh high socks | Coach vintage suede purse | thrifted suede pumps




The sweetheart of a bf bought me a few things during our short stint to Dallas, this lavish tartan dress from Rugby by Ralph Lauren being one of them. I love the A-line ruffle detail of the skirt; it really does make me feel like a princess, in a more modern way. 

The weather is rather arctic in nature lately, so instead of covering the beauty of this dress with a cardigan, I decided to pair it with a knitted top underneath.

I was re-organizing my purses the other day and behold, I found this suede Coach purse. It was the first Coach purse I ever owned, long forgotten as I discovered others. Now I carry it around like its my first love.
