What do you wear when the outfit you wanted to wear has a busted zipper, you have to be at work a bit early, you have a very important meeting at work where you need to look professional, yet are attending a fashion event later in the evening, with no time to change? Ta-da! This is my result.  Not really high-fashion, but I have to make my 9-5 the priority, and I feel really good in this dress.

I hesitated on purchasing this dress, but each time I wear it I am so glad I got it. The only issue is that is wrinkles, but that is to be expected with cotton! I really need to get some nude heels to wear with it come summer so it will look great sans cardigan.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember a couple of months ago I posted about Shoewoo, an online shoe store going out of business.  They had all their remaining stock on drastic sale, and I was able to score these shoes for around $17.00.  Love Nine West, they are on trend without being trendy, good quality without killing the budget, and they fit my chubby little piggies!

    I love the dress on you!!! I saw a similar one in Matalan (UK store) when I was in Liverpool last year but I hesitated because I thought it would look odd on me. I should have tried it on…. big regrets now!

    Thanks so much Gervy! I did have a couple coworkers comment on my look yesterday, and a stranger compliment me on the street 🙂

    Yep, you really do look amazing today. The word that popped to mind is “sleek”. You look perfectly groomed, and the look is professional without being boring. I hope your workmates appreciated you!

    The print on this dress is very interesting! A good choice for what was on your calendar for the day.

    I like that dress a lot.

    Are you a Trekie? The pattern across the bottom kind of looks like little alien space beings faces.

    You look fantastic! The dress is gorgeous, and the bright print really suits you, and makes you stand out. The cardigan is the perfect way to tone the print down for the office.

    My dress is famous!!! 🙂 Yep, they still have their brick & mortar stores, but shut down the online. Hate when that happens to a good company.

    I think someone was wearing this dress on Criminal Minds last night and I think the last time you wore I said I wanted it. And I didn’t realize Shoe Woo went out of business!

    I know, who can resist pockets, especially pockets that don’t make your hips look crazy? 🙂

    I know, I am on a Ikat high lately, I now want a blue-toned one Ikat-print something…

    This dress is beautiful! I love the print. I’ve been really, really into anything Ikat lately and this is a super-fine example!

    I love the dress, you look great! Perfect look for work and then fun. …and I have a thing for dresses with pockets.

    I almost gasped when I saw this outfit. I LOVE IT! That dress is spectacular and it’s perfectly paired with your belted cardigan for the office. GREAT JOB!
