Please forgive the wrinkles- I took this photo when I got home from work tonight. Also, the fabric is not nearly that shiny- the flash on my camera is seriously exaggerating the sheen. As you can see, I finished the outfit with a pair of knee-high flat boots. They were a birthday gift from my mom (among other things purchased on last weekend's trip up north). They are from the Gap and they were a bargain at $16. I'll have to take a close-up of them so you can see the cute buckle detail at the ankle. Because it's winter, I did layer one of my favorite sweaters over this dress so I wouldn't freeze my booty off all day:
You may notice that my left wrist is looking a little light compared to the last few weeks. Remember my new watch from Kenneth Cole? Well, as I was trying to open the clasp one day, it popped open suddenly and my watch fell to the floor (my carpeted, bedroom floor), and the face of the watch shattered. I was so disappointed! I hadn't worn a watch in nearly 10 years and I barely had that one for 3 months! So sad. I'm thinking of replacing it, but I need to find one equally fabulous and at a bargain price, which could prove to be difficult. Anyway, enough about that. What do you think of my bright, somewhat over-the-top outfit? I got quite a few remarks today along the lines of, "You look... interesting..." I never mind that. I'm not dressing for anyone else's approval- I'm dressing to feel good and I feel great in this outfit. Is it the most flattering thing I've ever worn? No. Is it the most elegant? The most put-together? Nope. I don't care. I still like it!
