Boutique Houndstooth from 1861

     I love my online shopping haunts, but after awhile, nothing seems fresh. Since I'm always looking for new brands and stores (literally, I google "best shops online"), I stumbled upon a BuzzFeed article. It named a few brands I already knew (hi Eshakti!), but one of them peaked my interest. It featured vintage inspired clothing, with modern details.

     The brand? Boutique 1861! I have one major deal breaker: quality. So when I got my package, I held my breath. I hoped the clothing would live up to my standards. Not only did the clothing surpass my expectations, the team at Boutique 1861 really know how to value a customer. My clothing came in beautiful tissue paper of Victorian drawings, wrapped in a ribbon,with a personalized card on top. A girl feels real special shopping with Boutique 1861!

     The first dress (of a few. I couldn't help myself!) is this beautiful wool houndstooth shift. It's made of weighty fabric and has beautiful gold zippers down the sides. A welcome surprise was the knotted collar on the dress. I seriously love this dress and plan to wear it once a week, weather permitting!

Office appropriate? (with cardigan) 
After-work drinks fun? ✓
Dinner date good? 
(heck yes! I can hide my food baby with this dress!!)
