..Double Duty


The deets: Everly dress (similar); J.Crew jeans; Sam Edelman heels; Betsy Johnson chain necklace; Lancome "Midnight Rose" lipstick.

This top is actually a dress (say wwwwhaaat?)!  I am super excited about posting this one (despite my sourpuss face above) because:

1. I consider this getting extra creative for this challenge (believe me I am not the type of girl that just picks up a dress and says "sorry dress, I think you should be a blouse today") and..
2. Someone asked me if it was by Tory Burch while I was out... and that is like so fetch (it's totally not some fancy pants Tory top, but who am I to deny dress from being the best blouse she can be by correcting her?  Good job zig-zag dress, for it being your first attempt at a top.. you done good.
