Today I'm bringing you pics of a print that was either loved or hated by JC fandom: the library print. The star piece was a silk empire-waist dress covered in a caaaraaaazy print, full of books and library ladders and statues and the like. There were also two cardigans, the bookshelf print and the library toile print. Finally, I recently saw a quilted tote on eBay. (ETA: Totally forgot there was a silk skirt and a scarf!)
The first cardi was actually a Factory item, if you can believe it. It's adorable and very well made. Love that little random items are colored in, like a small blue frog. I'm wearing a size small. (It's paired with the lace tee from last summer, and the bow pencil skirt a la Glee).
I'm a complete bookworm. Ever since I can remember, I always have a book (well, now Kindle) close at hand. I read 1-2 books a week. So you can see why these prints appealed to me, nerd that I am. (Speaking of which, check out AppGal's post on cool bookish things.)
And here you can see the dress and cardi in all their (caaaraaaazy) glory:
You can also see it looking gorgeous on the lovely Dina here and here. ETA: I have a size 4 in the dress and it fits me perfectly. I don't think I could zip up anything smaller. So I'd say it fits smaller than current sizing, since I've been wearing 2's lately there.
Whatcha think? I know it's not for everyone, so no worries about hurting my feelings. :) Do you have any of these pieces? Searching for them?
Thanks for tuning in! Have a wonderful day!
