Orange Crush

When I was a little girl, online shopping didn't even exist yet...but I remember looking through my mom's catalogs that arrived in the mail each month.  I would flip through the pages and mark the ones that I liked best (even though they were women's sizes and I was only 7 or 8 at the time).  I just loved imagining what it would be like to dress up in all those fabulous things.  Spiegel was one of the few catalogs that I actually remember my mom ordering clothes from, so I'm a little sentimental about the brand - which is why I was thrilled when they asked me to style something from their spring line!

It was really hard to choose because there are so many great pieces for the season...most of which are on sale right now!  But, this dress immediately caught my eye thanks to the fun color + slightly mod shape.  And when I put it on, I was amazed by the couture quality for such a great price.  I'm also seriously obsessed with these perforated pumps & this amazing leather jacket they sent me...I almost wish it was cold again so I could wear it!

Since my blogging bff and I chose the same dress (without knowing it), we decided to link up and show "west coast vs. east coast" style!  You can see how Jenn wore hers here.  And the best news of all is that Spiegel is offering an exclusive discount code for PPF readers!  Just enter "Spiegel2013" at checkout to receive 20% off your purchase.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Spiegel dress (here), J. Crew necklace (similar herehere or here), c/o DMSX pumps (similar here or here), c/o JustFab clutch (here), Bracelets: Vintage & c/o Christina M. Boutique (here), LC Lauren Conrad sunnies (on sale here), Nails: Essie ClamBake
