I knew that being included in the photo was a definite long shot, but like any fashionista, I had to thoroughly prepare for the possibility.
|Shoshanna Plum Sateen Dress and Kate Spade Slingback Pumps|
I decided I wanted to wear one of my favorite, flattering and most professional dresses for the photo shoot, so I chose the Shoshanna Plum Sateen Pleated Cap Sleeve Dress. I absolutely adore this dress for its beguiling color, waist-enhancing silhouette, and simple cap sleeves that slim the arm.
The dress in this plum color is no longer available, but here's the same dress in a pink floral pattern: Shoshanna Hibiscus Jacquard Charlotte Plated Dress.
I paired the dress with my (current) favorite pair of work shoes: the Kate Spade Celeste Slingback Pumps in black leopard. These Kate Spade shoes are still available online at Amazon.com in a different color, and you can find the same color in just a few sizes (and on sale, too) at Eve's Apple.
If you like this dress, I've found a few others online that have a similar silhouette, so I hope you will check them out if you are in the market for a new addition to your closet:
