Monday Saint

Knowing that today was going to drive me crazy piss me off vex me slightly, I dressed to feel good, both inside and out. 
Requirements: lug 16 cartons of milk back to the office, be classy for the new hires this morning (including a new HR guy) while I give them the office tour, deal with over a dozen clients onsite over the course of the day.

What's a gal to do? Wear a dress!

  • Dress - All Saints, consignment; purchased here on the weekend for $29.00
  • Shoes - Aldo, thrifted; last worn here in June with vintage silk and culottes

I wore a full navy blue vintage slip under the dress to cover up wide arm holes, deal with any sheerness and to minimize thigh display while running around. Success!

I really loved wearing this all day.
You just can't go wrong with a dress!

The stuff:
Easy flats. I also walked to and from our other office in these.

Silver and blue bling:
Assorted shiny things.

  • Cuff - St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop
  • Bangle - local
  • Earrings - local
  • Lapis lazuli ring/Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes

Although I had to dash out early this morning, I still had time to take a couple of pictures of Vizzini.
"Oh, sure, but no time to cuddle."
 Sorry, buddy. You know I'd rather stay home and nap all day with you, right?
"I may acquiesce to a cuddle later."
I need to be a house cat in my next life.


  1. Very professional outfit. I've never used the word "vex" and respect your language choices.

  2. Wow the All Saints dress totally rocks - I think its good to dress up on days you know that you're gonna have a tough one, it gives you that extra push.

    1. Thanks, Lorena! I totally agree - knowing you look good works like armour!

  3. That dress is lovely on you. I hope that looking good helped you feel good, or at least a little better, about such a busy day.

  4. Like Ally, I noticed the word vex. I love it! So passive aggressive in a good way. Southern ma'am speak :-D xo Jazzy Jack

    1. Jazzy Jack, I do declare - let's all make a pact to use "vex" more often.

  5. Oooo, that is a fantastic dress (I would definitely add that to my summer wardrobe). It has an unusual shape and the colour and fabric makes it perfect for a day when you need to be a bit more "dressed up". Good score Sheila!

  6. Some days a dress is the perfect answer. And yes, we ought to be using "vex" more often - I shall champion that too!

  7. I love that dress with its uneven hemline, just fabulous and obviously the right choice for an amazing woman about the office (and everywhere!)xx
