Wardrobe Wish List: Free People Seracina Tiger Lace Dress

As that hint of crisp air creeps into the weekly forecast every couple of days, all of us are looking towards winter, packing away a few more tanks each week and investing in a new winter coat for the season.

But while many girls consider winter wear to be a pair of Uggs and some cashmere sweaters, I go about the fall/winter wardrobe a tad differently. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love both of these things, but my fall shopping is fueled by an unhealthy obsession with the mini-dress-tights-boots combo.

So unhealthy, in fact, that my closet has at least 40 dresses in it. I always find a reason to pick up another one. So it’s no surprise that what I am craving right now is – you guessed it – a mini dress.

But believe me this isn’t just any dress. It is a freaking amazing Free People printed mini with embellishment up the wazoo. The neckline is encrusted with studs. The shoulders and back are covered in amazing sheer lace. And the waist is cinched with an elastic banded belt.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a dress so effortlessly achieve a balance between delicate and flirty, able to be equal parts sexy as it is girly. And believe me when I tell you I’ve been around the block a couple of times when it comes to dresses.

I can already see myself in it. With a chunky knit sweater, cream tights and flats for class or with my brown motorcycle jacket and some heels for a night out.

Finding the money to purchase it is not a problem; I’ve accepted the fact that I will be paying off credit card debts until I die. What’s really stressing me out is deciding on a color: a cool palette of creams and blues or a moody mix of black and violet?
