This morning I was thinking of getting all creative, pairing my new polka-dotted silk CAbi shirt with a vintage sequined jacket and dark jeans. I started getting dressed and just felt hot, too layered, and not me today. Today is a dress day. A day where I don't have to think much but still look sassy sort of day. And with that comes these booties. I know it's the third outfit in a row with them, but they are just so darn comfortable and take an outfit from being too dressy or too prim to feeling kind of rocker and I like that. So I may feel exhausted and boring but I look as though I put forth a bunch of effort!
I gravitated towards this dress as soon as Ann Taylor had it in their stores, but I held off because I felt I didn't need ANOTHER black dress. And then it went on sale. And then they had a discount on top of sale merchandise. And then Ann Taylor was lovely enough to send me a gift card a few weeks ago which will go even farther since I got this dress for only $45! it's hard to see, but the dress is a stretch satin with jersey insets. This is a perfect replacement for last fall's ponte dress which I wore to all sorts of events and eventually sold because it was too large for me. I can see me wearing it to work, to a holiday party sans belt or with a skinny sparkly one, even to a wedding.
