Grey with gold

I have been waiting for the temperature to drop a bit so that I can wear this fabulous cotton/cashmere dress I acquired along with the jacket at Theory outlet a few weeks ago. I love this dress completely. Because of its cashmere content, it feels very soft against the skin. It's wearable in four seasons. I'm totally planning on wearing it all the way to the winter with tights and boots. I love its gold tone trims on the sides of the dress and on the front pockets. The golden buttons on the pockets are adorable. It looks great without belt, but if you are looking for a more defined shape, throw on a wide belt, it looks just as nice.
I have to also use this opportunity to thank my friend Sahara for recommending this pair of black sandals from Aldo to me. It's probably the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. It's very light, and the leather is super soft. It's my new walking shoes. I'm planning on wearing them to my next weeks conference in Portland, Oregon. I will try to take some pictures while I'm there, but I don't know how much free time I will have eventually.

  1. Thank you. Trust me, you don't want to be as petite as me. :)

  2. Absolutely loooooove the dress! It looks even better in real than the picture. I wish I was as petite as you so I can fit in it like you. :) Enjoy your trip!

  3. the sea horse necklace is nice, and the bag compliments the outfit well!

    Pretty and looks comfy, too. Love the shoes.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. I just noticed this link on Facebook. I'm a co-worker of Vicky...just one row over. I'll have to attest that Vicky has been looking very stylish at work. I especially noticed the yellow dress last week. It brightened everyone's day. It's such a disappointment that so few people in our industry care about 'what' they wear. Keep it up Vicky!

  6. Thank you so much Brian for your support. It means a lot to me. I truly believe that you are what you wear. Come visit the blog often. :)

  7. Yes Ciupa, it "is" comfy. The shoes are wonderful, aren't they?
    Have a great weekend to you too.

  8. Thank you so much for being a new follower. I appreciate it.
    I love the sea horse necklace. It's a fashion necklace, but it's very well made. I have to give JCrew some credit. I can't seem to find much clothing items that fit me, but their accessories are my favorite.
