I decided to rebel against that whole “no white after Labor Day” rule. I don’t think it really applies in SF…September/October is our summer after all.

Trying to keep my cool and prep for Fashion Week festivities, stay caught up with work responsibilities, and gear up for the Teen Vogue/Bebe FNO Blogger Boutique on Thursday night (excited!).

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. Back to reality! <3

    Good for you for wearing white after Labor Day. Your dress looks great…I’ve always had a thing for ruffles, but don’t wear them often because it is just too tempting for my cats.

    I thought it was only white SHOES that are *forbidden* after Labor Day :)

    I hate the no white after Labor Day rule. That dress is to die for, as are the shoes!

    Laura Reply:

    Thank you!! Isn’t it a silly rule?! :)

  23. Shelby 06. Sep, 2011 at 4:09 am #

    Love that you rebelled against the so- called rule, and you couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful dress for the rebellion! The back of it is amazing and I love it with your shoes <3shelby

  33. krista 05. Sep, 2011 at 11:05 pm #

    i agree with the white rule – it definitely doesn’t apply here in san francisco! i totally forgot that it does elsewhere though…when i went back home (to boston) in april, i wore some white jeans on a warm day and everyone was appalled. eek!

    love the shoes, gorgeous look!
