Trying on my new dress

I just picked up my dress today from my tailor. Anything I buy always ends up being expensive because of the additional cost at the tailor, but it is worth it because I don't like ill fitting clothes. I couldn't wait so I tried on the dress as soon as I got home, and I thought to take a picture and share with everyone. I am neutral about it, it is as cute as most of the ones I already own.
My tailor did a great job on the alteration. I wore it out with my bf on Saturday night and he loves it. He wants me to repeat it again on our next outing, but I said I must wear everything in my close once before I repeat this, and there are still too many things in my closet that has yet had my special attention:)

FFF for the office

I am a big time bargain shopper. I dont often pay retail for shoes or clothing items except for essential accessories like a classic Chanel bag, clutch, my everyday oversized Chanel and Tomford sunglasses, ect.

Fashion is not about having the It bag, dress, shoes or wearing what everyone is wearing. I don't always have to have the latest trend. It is more important to know who you are, your body type and what type of clothes, shoes, accessories work best for you. I love classic body hugging sheath dress with intricate details, and pencil skirts.

As seen above:

1) Top: Cashmere sweater by Theory
2) Skirt: honestly I am not quite sure whose it is made by, but I love it. I will find out when I get home and let you know.
3) Shoes: Suede pumps by Brian Atwood
4) My new Tomford sunglasses, my early BD present from A.Duy
