The other day I had an important meeting at work. It has always been my theory that one should dress for the job she wants, not the job she has. That said, I've decided I would make an excellent First Lady. I'm fairly certain this would be a stellar profession for me because:
1. I am excellent at organizing and executing luncheons
2. I love fancy yet not-too-elegant clothing
3. I am very good at reading books aloud to school children
For this meeting, following my rule, I decided to bust out Anthropologie's Mampos Dress. I feel like a young first lady could pull this off. The Mampos was definitely a splurge for me when I bought it this spring, but I love that it can be dressed up or down, it is extremely comfortable, and it is the perfect color for me. As soon as I saw this dress in the April catalog, I was smitten. The dress has been receiving a lot of attention in the Anthro community, especially after it was featured on Glee as well as on a few commercials.
It was hard for me to get pictures in this dress, so these aren't the best, but we'll roll with it for now! (Ignore the "lazy eye" thing I seem to have going on here...)
