I wore this dress last Thursday to work and my mom came into DC to have lunch with me.  We sat outside at a cafe enjoying the gorgeous weather… and the bees were surely enjoying this dress!  It's like every insect in the Nation's Capital was drawn to my marigold-hued frock.  Even with such buzzing attention, I'm still a big fan of this dress.  It has great drape, an exposed gold zipper in back, and the fabric resists wrinkles; I was crease-free after a while day plunked down at my desk!  I think this dress will transition nicely into the colder months, looking great with black tights or worn under a blazer or cardigan.

I loved pairing it with blue Dagne Dover Legend Tote; I've been using the heck out of this brilliantly-designed bag.  This is the perfect work bag; it's big enough to hold your laptop and anything else you could use for your work day.  I can tuck in there my reusable water bottle, a pair of commuting shoes, my lunch and still have space for my purse essentials.  No matter what is in it, this blue Dagne Dover Legend Tote never tips over and there's a place for everything (including a cord for my keys!).  The straps are the perfect length to feel good in the hand, in the crook of the elbow, or over your shoulder.  I carried this bag at the BlogHer conference and people stopped to ask me where I got it; the other week I had a few coworkers in my office oohing and aahing over it.  I've become a big fan of this company, impressed with the quality and intelligence behind the bags as well as the great people of Dagne Dover and their amazing customer service.

    That dress is so gorgeous I’m itching to buy it – but given I dress entirely in neutrals, it would probably never come out of my wardrobe … But I’m SO tempted!!

    Super cute! I’m usually a black-on-black-on-black gal, but the colours in that frock are fantastic. You look breezy and comfortable Allie – a great look.

    Oh! This dress flatters you so, so much, Ellie! To me, it’s the best I saw here (no offence 🙂 the colors make you look very, just superfresh)

    OMG…this is beautiful on you, bright & cheery just like your smile!! (When I wear my yellow skirt the bees are attracted to it…someone told me that’s the case with yellows—haven’t researched it for sure, but that could be why you were the love of the insect’s lives!!) Great idea with the feedback form…can you tell how you got it? jodie

      I did the form with SurveyMonkey.com, it’s free for up to 10 questions and minimal design control. You could also use a Google Form, which would provide the results in Excel format. 🙂

    To heck with natural fabrics!
    A knit dress that doesn’t wrinkle belongs in everyone’s wardrobe.

    I hope to see this styled with the black tights to see how that goes.
