Dress of the Day: Philip Lim 3.1 sweater dress

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

Of course, I would never leave you hanging without a dress of the day. And so: It's never, ever too early to start thinking about what you will desperately want this fall, especially if there's any chance scoring a vintage version from a thrift shop before everyone else swoops in. Right now, you want to be on the lookout for sweater dresses. To get you focused on "cold…brrr...wool…", here's today's pick: Philip Lim 3.1 sweater dress ($456) from great online shop La Garconne. The slouchy suede boots are also amazing, no?

Sadly, we in Singapore are going to have to sit this trend out, as it's approximately 88 degrees here year-round. That seemed like a really good thing when we were deciding to move here, but now I'm anticipating some intense wool withdrawal come October.

La Garconne is an amazing website. The buyer definitely knows how to pick them and what designers are the most avant garde. I just wish they had a little more Vivienne Westwood stuff.

it will definitely b one of my fav. online shopping site! but i can't seem to check out. do they take international orders?

i'm not sure about int'l orders -- even though i live abroad, i have the luxury of a us address that forwards to me here.

you can try e-mailing them directly to place an int'l order, which often works as long as you have an int'l credit card. or, if you live in singapore, try vPost (through the Singapore post office) or ComGateway (, which provide a US address and forward your packages on to Singapore for a small fee.

I have to say, that Vivienne Westfood ruched dress in the sale section for $165 looks pretty amazing!
