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.
