This dress was one of my last purchases in December before my only "new to me" new year's resolution for 2010. I worry that the dress is a tad too short, especially when belted (hence teh lack of belt). Actually, just too short for the work environment. So I wore it with black leggings to convince myslef it was "work ok". Also my boots lack a heel, as that makes the dress seem longer. The black cardigan sweater is Ann Taylor, that I picked up at where else? Goodwill.
