That’s right, it’s Karina dress number two. Get a load of that fabulous pattern, would ya? And, once again, I’m stunned to find that I own a bolero that is the EXACT shade of subdued red in the print. Its like my wardrobe is a living being with predictive powers.

You may notice that the dress neckline is both high and slanted. Why? I’ll show you:

It’s actually a one-shoulder style dress! Far too sexy for work on its own, but easily made office-appropriate with a top layer. I’ll have to manufacture a reason to wear this dress in its full, one-shouldered glory …

    Ha! I was with ya until that one shoulder thing. But the print is awesome. Bodenesque, even.

    My favorite thing about these pictures? You are looking right at the camera, and you look just as pretty as when you look over your left shoulder.

    Love the outfit today, and the face you’re making in the last picture is so adorable. You’re wonderful.

    Love the print on that dress. You made me giggle with the one shoulder thing.

    I just thrifted a one shoulder top and I’m trying psych myself up enough to wear it.

    Haha, I LOVE bringing home a new thing and finding something in my wardrobe that matches perfectly with it! That right there is justification to have a vast array of clothing, is it not?

    Oh, I LOVE that it’s one-shoulder! I wore a one-shoulder sequined top for work some months ago (with a blazer over it) – amazing what a good cover piece will do.

    Your face in that last picture is priceless!

    You look ravishing in that shade of red. Love the print — and your face in the last photo! I’d love to see you style it as a one-shoulder piece someday.

    That dress is gorgeous! The first thing I thought was, the skirt of that is perfect for swing dance!

  9. Anna

    heehee! I love the pictures today – and that dress is super cute!

    I love your face in that picture! You are so funny. I love your sense of humor AND that outfit too! I wonder, why do we think one bare shoulder is risque? A low-cut top shows a great deal more, of partses which are really more, you know…potentially naughteh. Shoulder concealment’s almost like a (to us) illogical Victorian sentiment–“bosoms are fine! but OMG NO ANKLES!” heehee. Gorgeous dress!!!

    Gorgeous print! I think a dress like this on its own is perfect for a day of lunching, shopping and generally good time.

  12. The Redhead

    Love the snakeskin shoes! That dress is too fun…perfect for you! Your last photo made me smile. Thanks!

  13. Cel

    Heehee, you are adorable Sal, that face is priceless. Part of why I love your blog… you can joke around and be cool! That dress’s print is fantastic though, oh my goodness.

  14. Jessie

    Love the shoes with your tattoos–I got one late in life and it’s moments of synergy like this that make me so happy, for me, for you!

    Psst – DSW has those pumps in store, but not online. They don’t fit me right and seeing them on you makes me want them even MORE!

    I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESS! I need to make my work wardrobe look like yours, I’m always in awe!
