Perfect Symmetry

I know I'm behind on all my blog posts, so I want to apologize. Tuesday I was not in the office, so here is my Wednesday outfit:

- Nanette Lepore Stella Dallas Black Multi Dress

- Purple Studio Pollini Platform Sandals

I like this dress because it is like a work of art. I have always loved pointillism (painting with dots), and one of my favorite paintings is Georges Seurat's A Sunday on La Grande Jatte. It was very exciting for me when Chapin and I saw the real thing at The Art Institute of Chicago in 2007. (We were there for Gail and Rich's wedding shower.) You may also remember Ferris and Cameron viewing this painting in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

The dress also reminds me of the poster for The Truman Show, which hung in my dorm room in college.

The dress looks very different up close than it does from farther away.
