an oldie but a goodie!

Okay this dress isn't really that old, but it was before my switch to only second hand clothing purchases.  I got it on clearance at Ann  Taylor Loft last fall (2009).  Everytime I wear it I get lots of compliments.  And the bets part of the dress.....it has pockets!   Yesterday I wore it straight from campus to martinis at night with friends, and it worked for both!  I felt professional at work, and my friends all thought I looked great.  I am wearing it with a belt from a consignment store and an Ann Taylor cardigan I found via Goodwill.

I'm wearing that dress today -- we're dress twins! You look great.

OK, I was going to say, that can't be an oldie, because I've never seen it before, but the info about your switch is contextually helpful. Seriously, ingenious that it has pockets and doesn't widen your hips one bit. Now that is a good dress.

The print on that dress is fantastic! I love a versatile dress that can go from campus to the bar!

I want to still this piece from you. How great the print is... love it with the cardigan even more.

It is very clear why you get so many compliments !
It's such a pretty dress and it fits you beautifully.
You could pair this with something purple and with that lime cardigan....
I really like this one.
