TBA Love Affairs.

I've had a secret love affair with TBA ever since I first saw this nude colored, silk, peter pan collar dress floating around on someones flickr photostream. If I remember correctly my jaw literally dropped when I saw it. Not only is it the perfect color done in the perfect material with the perfect details, but the collar's sorta perfect too and reminds me a lot of the beaded broad collars the pretty Egyptians would wear to spice up their outfits (only rounder and much more my style). It's one of those dresses that keeps popping up on random blogs reminding me of how much I love it. I finally found out that it's TBA for Urban Outfitters, and it has a bunch of friends in the shop too (Urban Outfitters U.K., that is). That's way more attainable than I originally thought, but (unfortunately) I'm a true thrifter at heart and even a $150 dress (with conversion numbers on top of that) is something I feel sick at my stomach spending money on. So here I am left with an imaginary love affair and a ton of lovely TBA dresses that I'll only get to touch in my dreams.





Oh. And while I'm dreaming, I might as well throw the TBA fall collection into the mix too.








LOVE-ly.
Must recreate one of these looks soon.

I love that fluffy black skirt in the third to last photo! I wish we all could just win the lottery or something and be able to buy frivolous things whenever.

i was thinking peter pan collars but when you said egyptians, i could totally see it.

i love these pieces, they have a very vintage feel to them, very you :)

Now I have a love affair with them too!! Those gold shorts look so fun and like something I would never actually wear in the real world, but would want to.

Diane said...

I've seen this dress around, too, and it's just so so perfect that I hate I can't afford it! That wonderful beaded collar haunts me in my dreams...

I fell in love with that dress too. But I'm in the same situation. The dress is just way out of my price range.
