Daily Outfit: 5/11/10

Gray shirt dress, Land’s End
Scarf as belt, thrifted
Pink pumps, Nine West
Pink jade earrings, LunaOwlDesigns

I had to run a PowerPoint at a Meeting of Bigwigs this morning, so I went for something in the “ladylike conservative” realm. Hopefully, I pulled it off. No one threw tomatoes, so I think I’m golden.

And just in case you’re wondering, yes, I went back for this dress in several other colors. I ADORE it!

    If you have to do ladylike conservative, you could do a lot worse than this dress. It's very cute–kind of a 50s vibe, like Donna Reed would have worn one like it–with that same air of clean confidence and capability.

    I am digging those pink pumps–gorgeous!!

  • lisa

    I have major shirtdress envy right about now!! You look gorgeous Sal. What other colours does it come in?

  • Audi

    That dress has so many possibilities; what a find! And your hair looks particularly ravishing lately, Sal. I'm just getting back to commenting after the move chaos but I've noticed in several of your recent outfit posts that your hair looks extra shiny and healthy.

    I love this colour combination! Very Ladylike conservative 🙂

  • What Would a Nerd Wear

    can't believe that dress is from lands end (actually, i can, i love lands end)–it's totally fabulous!

  • Sal

    lisa: It looks to be sold out in everything but black, though they do restock. I nabbed it in red, gray, khaki, and black. I WISH I'd bought it last season when they had it in a gorgeous midnight blue …

  • ab

    I'm glad you adore the dress – you look incredible in it!!

  • Ecc3ntricCynic

    It's a great dress. And it looks beautiful with those pink pumps. I think you nailed ladylike conservative. ;]

  • Kate

    New reader here: really enjoying your blog! I'm intrigued by your tattoo, it looks so interesting… do you have a post where you show us all, or do you just tease us with that bit of ankle? 😉

    Also, I do not DO pink, but I am seriously lusting after those shoes.

    If they had thrown tomatoes, you could have had a nice salad after. Oh well!

  • Peter

    Very cute dress and it's a great color for you I think. To me it's more classic than conservative and, ahem, sexy!

  • rubybastille

    Holy cow, I've been underestimating Lands End. That dress is fantastic!

    I totally have the same dress in black and blue. If it works then get a bunch. I like the pop of color in the shoes.

    And I can totally see why – that cut is FABULOUS! P.S. Khaki and pink? Ooh, WEE! Who would've thought that two such colours could look so abysmally brilliant together? I love it!
