Dress: Banana Republic; Shoes: boutique Nine; necklace: express; Blazer: Express; belt: Linea Pelle
I recently purchased this dress at Banana Republic in 3 different colors, but I have to say this is my favorite one. It's a deep blue, cobalt. It is made of silk and has billowy sleeves. I belted it with a studded leather belt and my favorite platform pumps. For work I wore a blazer over it, which I took off for evening. The color had such a calming effect all day despite the fact that I was running around for the most part. Oh ya the best part is that the outfit retail value would have totaled close to $500. I got for under about $120!
Style Secret: The dress tended to crease after long hours of sitting at my desk, so every now and then I spritzed it with a bit of Downy wrinkle release spray. I bought a travel-size bottle at Walmart for about a buck. It works miracles!
