A Little Black Shirt Dress

Hi Ladies,
Feels like forever since I wrote a post, but it was just last week... :) Anyway, I know I'm a little behind in responding to comments, but I'll get there! I can't blame the wild fires in California, or that I was traveling, I guess it was just one of those weeks. So, I'm blogging today about one of my favorite pieces: a shirt dress. I think they are a fabulous and simply way to dress for work. The collar makes you look professional and what can be more simple that putting on a dress? I love this one for summer because it's made of mostly cotton, but they used different textures to keep it interesting. (Photos were taken by  Randy Luckey of 1220.)
Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. ^^Have to agree with Lubka! You do look really chic and sophisticated in all black. Wildfires or not we all have those weeks of getting behind on blogging, comments, etc. Real life just...gets in the way of blogging sometimes! That's probably how it should be. :)

  4. Girl, I'm so behind on comments I don't even know where to start anymore! I certainly understand being behind! You look fabuloso in this shirt dress though! A plain black dress is so chic, and this is perfect on you! Carylee | morepiecesofme.com

  5. Sometimes it is just impossible to do all of the work you need to do to keep up a blog! I am going to run into a rough patch for the next month starting tomorrow. I do not know how I am going to do everything so I probably won't - and since the blog is just me and there are no real pressing deadlines - I am sure it will be the first to get a little neglected. Ah well.
    You look so fabulous in your all black ensemble with that beautiful lipstick!

  13. I could seriously have 20 black dresses in my closet. I love black! Maybe it's because the girls at the MAC counter always look so chic. Great post, and you look fierce. xoxo
