Dress me in sexy black!

I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it:

Well, guess what? I don't have an answer on my exciting news yet so I need to focus on something other than that. Case in point: I spent my lunch break today returning PART of the inventory of the "maybe these will work with my suit for my Chicago interview" and... BY THE WAY, please pay attention to the fact that it is about things I thought would work but did not wear... NOT things I wore and am now returning post-interview (just so we're clear...), I ain't white trash like that....SHOOOOOOOOT!

(I love this dress)

ANYWAY, I am a pretty big selective shopper. I love department stores when I have a purpose but other than that I tend to focus on stores that are more specific and smaller (i.e. American Apparel, The Rack, Marshall's, The Limited, etc.), but when I needed to buy a full suit for a job interview, I needed department store brands, availability and pricing. So when I needed to exchange a blouse post-interview (again,unworn!), I had to roll back into Macy's. This is where I came across the new love of my LIFE!

(I want this dress....now now now now now now...)

holy heck, I'm not even thinking about New Year's but I just found the most PERFECT new year's dress: conservative enough, sexy, classic, trendy... mine, mine, mine!

I really was obsessed and took the bold move of putting it on hold, haha. Well, I am trying to save money so going to the mall to return something didn't really coincide with buying a dress but Christmas wish... here... it ... COMES. Hint, Hint Family!

PS- here's what I actually wore to work today :)

xoxoxo to you Americans for the last day before Thanksgiving and to you Abroad Sexy Ladies: I am obsessed with learning of your cultures, so happy work week lovelies. I've said it before and I'll say it again: you're the pen pals I always wanted!

So what are you wearing for New Year's!?!?!?

I love your work outfit even more than I love the New Years dress. The blousy sleeves on that gray shirt are to die for. You look so great!

(and if you found THE new years dress . . . you should so get it. :)).

Happy Thanksgiving Caitlin!!

You look *phenomenal* in that dress!!

What am I wearing on New Year's? Ack, I have a party to go to this Saturday and I haven't even decided what to wear for *that* - so forget about me thinking as far in advance as NYE!! Haha. Hopefully I'll find something nice though! :)

Jen said...

Little black dresses are my fave! It's hard to go wrong and that one is very cute on you.

Alison Kinsey said...

that dress is SO fun Caitlin, and so you!! I love the skirt part with all the feathers. I have NO idea what to wear for New Year's, much less what the heck I'm going to do to celebrate! I wore black last year, so I might do something a little more vibrant this time around.
