I got this Maggy London dress in Seattle after Angie made me to size down
in it. It is past my knees! It has long sleeves! It has a high neckline! And it also has pattern I feel comfortable in because it is subtle and low contrast. When I bought it I thought the dress is dark brown but now I think it is black.
I decided to wear it to work today ( go Team Wear! ) First I tried it with my silver pumps but it felt too dressy so I switched to these pretty casual Naya booties in burgundy. As I donned them I thought that this may be a chance to try Angie's latest ensemble. Of course, this dress is not Toffee but the pattern is kind of bronze which is close enough I think. :-)
My only tomato red item is my Chromia satchel so it came out to play today. For a topper I selected my Danier white moto - and off I went to work! Dress does make it easy to dress. I kept moto on outside as the morning was chilly and then indoors it was on and off depending how bad AC was at the moment. It was such a relief to be able to wear this dress sans any topper because IT GOT SLEEVES!!!!
I felt so good in it all day. The quality is quite nice and the fit is spot on (as you would expect with Angie fitting you in it). It does feel a bit close in the armholes but the fabric is stretchy so I hope I can get used to it.
Thank you Angie and Inge for patiently going with me through that pile of dresses in Macy's so I can understand that this dress from Nordstrom should be mine! :-)
I am going to wear it with tall dressy boots and pumps and with myother booties. For toppers I think my navy Gap moto, brown Danier leather blazer and even black long tux - and maybe even my new charcoal gillet!
