This outfit is from last week but feels like a million years ago! I wore this to work and then out for a festive dinner with friends. And off we go:
This dress is from LOFT from last year and it's one of my favorites. I love the subtle leopard print and flare shape. They currently have a black short sleeved flare dress that's the same cut but there are so many cute dresses on sale at LOFT that I think you can do better! This crimson floral dress looks promising (and only $20! Read the reviews, though. It runs big.)
Another view of my bag. If you're thinking of a red satchel, I gotta say this Costilde handbag at Yoox looks like a great deal. Under $100 for a fashion-forward red leather handbag? Can't beat that. And there's this one that's similar in price and shape but a smaller size.
Because short sleeves are annoying in winter, I threw on my old Laundry notched lapel blazer which worked well with this outfit. Rather than try to find something similar, I'm going to suggest you check out this tuxedo jacket at BR which is a total steal, as is this inverted collar blazer. These sales are going to kill me, you guys.
