Ensemble du Jour: 1-9-11

We sort of had a date night today.  We went to see the Winston-Salem symphony play  Finlandia by Sibelius and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, so I got to wear one of my party dresses. 



I don't believe in restricting clothes between work and play but some dresses I think are a mite too short for the office.  Maybe they are, maybe they aren't but I play it safe.

But I love this little Neapolitan-colored dress from Lulu's. I actually wore this same outfit to the IFB Blogger's party, but we were running around so much I didn't get any pictures. That time I wore it with black tights, a longer belted cardigan and patent heels.  Here I changed it up with a shorter cardigan, white tights and black velvet peep-toe slingbacks with sweet bows on the front.



Here's a better look at the dress...




And the shoes...



First outfit post of the year, so we're starting off on a fun note!  By the way, I can't believe it's only been one week since I've been back in the office.  I'm ready for another vacation already!

I love the dress and I agree with you about length. For work it has to be below the knee!

I just adore the cute peep toe shoes with this dress. I read a great advice on which shoes would go best with dresses from shoe review
