ISO: Strapless sweater dress

leave a comment »

Image credit: Jezebel/Nikola Tamindzic

During season four of Project Runway (which was also the first season I ever watched) I was thoroughly enamored by nearly everything that Jillian Lewis (she of the motionless forehead and somewhat bland personality) wore. She didn’t win, but I loved her final collection and I especially loved what she wore to the Bryant Park runway show. I knew it was her own design and I figured it was a one-off thing she’d made for herself. Imagine my distress when I realized that it was actually part of her fall/winter 2008 lineup which means that, somewhere out there, it was for sale. Two years ago.

Yes, I understand the absurdity of a short, strapless dress in a chunky cable knit and I also understand the ridiculousness of that seemingly functional but useless row of buttons on the fullest part of the garment…but I want it anyway, dammit. Or at least something similar.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to locate such a dress thus far, which is of course why I’m posting about it here.

If you know of a place where I can get a strapless, chunky cable-knit sweater dress (with a full-ish skirt!) then please be awesome and leave a comment here!

ISO: Sweater shorts

leave a comment »

I want THESE shorts, just with a lower rise and a slightly shorter inseam (see red lines for reference) and possibly a heavier knit! Though the heavier knit part isn’t necessary…

Know a way for me to buy these? Let me know in the comments!

ISO: Red patent sandals

leave a comment »

My first ISO post!

So here’s what I want YOU guys to find for me (please help me and my incompetence please).

ISO: Patent leather sandals with a high, thin heel (over 3″). Strappy, but not too complicated. And I want them in a darkish red, but not too dark. See the following:

Whoops, those aren’t level are they.

I like the shades of red in the shoes above, but obviously the style of the shoe doesn’t really fit what I’m looking for. However, these next shoes are fine, fine examples of lovely shoes…in the wrong color, of course.

Oh if ONLY these shoes only came in solid blood red…and were less than $200.

I like the strappiness of the shoes on the left but everything else is kind of all wrong. 3.3″ heel? I don’t think so. The shoe on the right is great except…it’s disco-glittery which is really not what I’m looking for.

I’ve been looking for the perfect red sandal for years, I kid you not. I actually found what I wanted on Yoox once a long time ago, but unfortunately it was close to $400. I waited and waited for either a) the price to go down or b) for the day when it’d make sense for me to spend $400 on a pair of shoes. Well, b happened one day, but of course the shoes were sold out at that point. Such is life.

So, help me? Please?

If you find something that you think might fit my description, just leave a link in the comments! Thanks guys!
