I wanted something cute enough to meet my girlfriends, go out on a date (haha like timmy and i ever go out on dates!), but also something i could wear to work. I have a fear of looking dowdy in a shirtdress, but have seen so many girls pull off the belted shirt dress look fantastically (sidenote: these aformentioned girls all happen to be blessed with killer bodies, so i’m guessing they could make a belted hefty bag look posh as well!!). So, I have been on a mission to find a dress that meets my criteria, is flattering on me, and is within my budget (i know, it sucks, but i’ve put myself on a “budget”!!!) I set off to anthropologie, and found the salon dress in a dark navy-could-pass-as-black color that looked damn hot, even in the horrendous fitting room lighting! the gauzy fabric is lightweight and fun, the tiny ruffles are feminine but not too frilly, and the buttons can be adjusted to reveal a bit of skin for your date night, or can be buttoned up for a more conservative look before a meeting with a client. –hence the perfect shirtdress…

salon dress (shown in violet) $148 @ anthropologie
golden pond earrings $48 @ anthropologie
