I was in a rush to get these pics last week after getting home late and before going to book club (which was before packing for vacation). This shirtdress was officially my first clothing purchase after the shopping diet. It basically embodies what I want for my professional dress: modest cut, not too tight, colorful, and printed (in a non-annoying way). So fun. And after reading S.'s post on built-in belts at Academichic, I pulled out the matching belt on this dress and tied on my own.
The second picture above is super-awkward, but it was the only other full-length pic I got. The dude you see in the background works at the restaurant in front of my apartment, and I walk by him on my way in from my car all the time. So it was super-awkward to see him while taking pics. Oh well.
A dress like this basically stands on its own. I left it simple with the nude pumps, but will probably try black or gray shoes next time.
Oh my gosh, my legs are pale. Time to bust out the gradual tan lotion.
What is your most awkward picture-taking moment?
