Awwww...thank you for all your kind comments about McCall's 6518. Wow Jenny, is it really my best dress? I think it might be! Definitely my most elegant dress.
I have worn it to work on Monday *and* today (I got away with that because today I went to an off-site work event that none of my direct co-workers were at. And I unexpectedly won an award at this event so I was photographed in my new dress, yay!).
I thought I'd show you how I styled it (though I actually wore it with my hair down). Gray cardi, gray tights, black Mary Janes. Kathy suggested black sheer stockings but those are currently out of my stock. of stockings. So, gray tights it was!
Here I am channeling Marisa from New Dress A Day. Can't quite get my hair into a top-knot like she does, but I felt the pose was vintage Marisa.
Here it is, without the cardi
And hee for your comments asking why I was vacuuming in the dress. It was because I had the dress on and then decided to quickly vacuum for the photo shoot.
It's a very comfy dress to wear. No one said anything to me about the dress today, but on Monday I got a lot of nice comments from my co-workers.
If you missed the post with the detailed pix, it's in this post...
