dress: ann taylor loft (sale for $9!)
belt: urban outfitters
boots: j. crew
ring and earrings: origins long forgotten
This dress was a real find for $9, and considering that it's shaped like a sack and has an ornate neckline, it's actually pretty easy to wear. With a sweater and a belt, or a tee layered under it, or a blazer, it is easy to make the neckline more casual and give the dress more shape. This sweater is perfect because its slightly scooped neck shows off some of the neckline. I tried to keep everything else pretty simple in terms of colors and accessories. I think I could also wear the dress on its own to holiday parties this winter--maybe a red sweater would make it more festive, or would that be overkill?
It's getting chilly here, and I'm still riding my bicycle--I've found a brisk ride to campus wakes me up better than a cup of coffee.
And if you're wondering about the title, it's what I'm teaching today...
