The city should give me its key, or Dress #6

Listening to: "I Feel Pretty," 
from the "West Side Story" soundtrack. 
Dress: Tabloid, summer 2006;
Tank top: Wal-Mart;
Black cougar bracelet: Finder's Keepers;
Wedges: Zigi Soho, Off-Broadway.

I feel narcissistic posting all of these photos, but Jeremiah did a really good job and the lighting and weather worked out in our favor. It was a balmy 50 degrees today, so no tights or sweater! I wore this while running errands with Jeremiah today. He was even dressed up for work, and though he's mostly camera-shy, I made him play model:

We felt like quite the dapper couple today.

About the outfit. I bought the dress four years ago so I could wear it to see the second "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. That sounds overzealous, but I am a big Johnny Depp fan and it felt like a special occasion. It's a wrap design and I love the vintage ruching style on the sleeves -- I feel pretty in this dress. (Cue "The West Side Story" music) It's six dresses into The Dress Project and I've noticed that I'm feeling more chipper, excited and well, glamorous and I think it's because I'm putting much more thought into what I wear every morning.

I'm going to try to catch up on my blog reading and commenting this evening. Hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful Monday night!

signature1 by you.

P.S. Thanks to Marie from The Joy of Fashion for featuring one of my outfits. She's got such a sweet, colorful style and you should check out her blog!
