Most of the pieces we've featured from The Pretty Dress Company in the past, regardless of season, have been bright, vibrant pieces (past posts here) but, we're loving the more subtle Fall/Winter '16 pieces rolling out right now.  One of our favorite things about autumn (besides Halloween and the decrease in humidity) is the the resurgence of plaid and tartan prints so, these particular pieces were calling our names and we knew we had to try them.  The dresses are made of a heavy cotton twill fabric that has a bit of stretch, which we loved, it was really comfy.  Both dresses ran a bit on the long side so, even though the Fatale Tartan Dress has some built-in petticoat, I wore an underskirt to puff it out a bit more and take up some length until I can get some alternations done.  While we would still LOVE for a UK6 to appear on their size chart one day, the UK8's we chose fit great.

I walk past The Hermitage Hotel almost every day during my lunch break since it's only a couple of blocks from my office in Downtown Nashville.  I was excited to visit on a non-work day so I had a little more time to explore (and the perfect piece to wear while doing it).  The history of the building is really interesting and even the men's bathroom has a weird cult following.
