Boucle Up

I cannot describe the agony I felt last night as I packed up the remainder of my summer items for storage.  It reminded me of the time when my best friend's mother was trying to describe what she felt after knee surgery.  Her bracingly accurate description:  "The pain is so...(long pause to locate the exact right word)...PAINFUL."  True that!  In any case, after I nestled the final items into their storage bags I jumped immediately online to hunt pieces that would take me from now to next spring.  Long sleeved dresses always fit that bill and this one had me at "combo."  This gorgeous L'Agence long sleeve combo dress is one part shirred silk wrap (top) and one part champagne boucle (skirt).  A perfect go-to piece, wear her to the office with pumps or out on the town with booties.
