Lacquered


Today's Outfit Details

Dress: Shoshanna Navy Abbie Dress in Navy

The dress is made of a lacquered tweed, so it won't easily wrinkle. I love the faux black leather trip around the neck and arm holes for that little something extra. The dress is also available on Bluefly.com.

A version of the dress is also available in white.

Eye Shadow: NARS Dogon

Shoes: Prada Cut-Out Booties

I know many people had today off for MLK Day, but I wasn't one of them. I don't think I've ever had this day off my entire career. I am currently reading The Invention of Wings, by Sue Monk Kidd, so I have been thinking quite a bit about our country's early days. This novel delves into the relationship between a slave girl, Handful, and her owner, an early feminist named Sarah. I'm only about halfway through, but both voices are so powerful. I highly recommend this book, and my Kindle version came with notes from Oprah herself. If you liked Ms. Kidd's The Secret Life of Bees, which I devoured, you should pick up this book as well.
