Polka Dot Dress and New Boutique 9 - WIW Today

Hello dear YLFR'S,
I wore my polka dot sleevless midi dress today (one of my few outings in a dress). I am trying to ease myself into them. I teamed it with my green jacket, white watch, orange purse and my new Boutique 9 laceless oxford peeptoe heels. I actually received the shoes a few weeks back but needed to stretch them just slightly so they have been on little shoe stretchers for a couple of weeks. They are comfortable now and NOT digging into my heels the way that Shannon experienced!

I hope you all like the ensemble! Scale of happiness it is an 9 for me.

    You look awesome in that dress! ! the jacket is perfect for keeping this a casual dress look, but this could easily be dressed up for any occasion.

    Love the red bag and your peep toes (I have them too ;-)

    Maybe this will get upgraded to FFF(Feeling Fab Factor) = 10 when you see how fab you are all day??!!

    Meredith, you have come so far in such a short period of time! I'm so proud of you for stretching your style muscles to wear a dress for a *non-special* occasion. You look so modern and fab with your new booties, and I love the way you've worn a colored jacket and bag with your dress, which fits and flatters you perfectly BTW. You go, girl!

    Absolutely stunning Meredith! I love you in this dress and I'm jealous that your booties are so comfy on you! Beautiful look!

    the dress is super fun! and a great fit. nitpicking, i would love to see a bit more cropped jacket here but the green with the red bag are really fun with the black and white. the low contrast booties bring in a nice long leg line. OT: love your stainless cable railing in peeking out in photo 2

    Meredith, this dress looks so beautiful on you--truly!! So springy and casual chic! I love it with the spring green jacket and the shoes. I'll bet you will receive lots of compliments today :).

    Love the dress with the Boutique 9's. You look so stylish, Meredith!

    Ladies! Thanks so much for liking the dress! Hubs watched me walk out the door with the orange purse and my red coat in tow and commented "You look colorful". His manspeak for "hmmmm....a little loud isn't it?".
    That stainless you noticed runs is our bannister. I wanted one..my hubs designed it...my twinnies step son actually brought his welder in and we constructed and raised it like a bridge. I love it!

    You look very pretty today! If your happiness level is a 9, then you're definitely doing something right. I like how the shoes are neutral and let the midi dress and bag do the talking.

  • MsMary replied 9 years ago

    Meredith, I look forward to your posts every day because your beautiful smile is like a shot of sunshine!! And OMG this dress showcases your beautiful figure to perfection!! I love everything about this outfit!

    And that stainless steel bannister? FAB!!

    You look stunning in that dress. Full stop. SO glad you are exercising your style muscles to wear it for a non-dressy occasion. Prediction: you will get compliments galore!!

    I love that dress and shoes on you. Very nice just like that and the color adds so much fun.

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Meredith, I can't believe you ever hesitated to step out in a dress, because it looks like you're a natural! That is a very beautiful dress of course, and so are the shoes; but it's YOU who makes this a charming, retro, ladylike look. And updated with the bright bag and coat, this is a great modern stylish look. I bet you had heads turning and eyes doing double takes today. Very Audrey Hepburn, this, somehow!

    Again Meredith, you look gorgeous in a dress, beautiful shoulders!

    The whole look is gorgeous on you. You should wear dresses more often! The shoes make it so current too.
