{Outfit} Welcome to Pleasantville

Given the full skirt and the white picket fence, I had planned on introducing this post by cataloging the frightening similarities between me and Joanna Eberhart – the photographer who leaves New York City and moves to suburbia in The Stepford Wives. But Gwyneth suggested we skip the satire and get straight to the point. So here you go – while just about every piece in today’s outfit is an “oldie but goodie,” we found current alternatives for you that we love even more than our pieces. Wait for it…they’re less expensive too. So there you go. Welcome to Pleasantville.
