The Portrait of a Lady

 Dress: Faux Wrap Dress in Black & Red by London Times (size 24) via Gwynnie Bee (use my link to get your first month for $10 & help me earn an extra garment for a month)
Tights: Catherines
Shoes: Dansko
Necklace: Me
Earring: etXarte
Photography: Super Boo & Me (Canon Rebel & iPhone)
I wore this dress to work & out to lunch (Indian buffet, yum!) with Super Boo. I was prepared to be not too keen on this dress due to the smaller pattern on top/larger on bottom...that look never works for me...until now. I felt sexy & confident in this dress, so it is now part of my permanent closet. The vibrant red & the wallpaper print are divine...the fabric was soft & silky. And I wish all faux wrap necklines stayed in place as well as this one. 
We were forced inside on this below 0 day & decided to visit the Edgewood College campus near our office to find a place to snap photos...we discovered this lovely round prayer/study room full of windows that neither of us had seen before despite having spent 2 years here for grad school. 
 Hey, let's use a book for a prop!
