The Day Shift

Dress: BB Dakota via Century 21, $25 // Scarf: Payless // Handbag: Christian Siriano for Payless // Booties: Prada courtesy of AMSB

Go me! I actually took an outfit photo before work. It only happened because my kind picture-taker was available during the early morning hours. At the top of my Christmas list: a tripod!

This purple shift dress is one of my favorite garments. It's just so easy to throw on for work, but for some reason I hadn't worn it in awhile. This time around, I paired it with some black tights, a zebra print scarf and the Prada booties I got in the America's Most Stylish Blogger Contest. They weren't the most practical for early morning dog-walking, but I felt great at the office!

I love that dress! It reminded me of something Joan would wear on Mad Men. Anyways, I was just curious if you get to keep all those goodies from the blogger contest?

Lizzy -

I work for the Payless company, so I got it as a sample, but it looks like it's available through Payless.com now!

The Daily Fashionista -

Yes, we do get to keep the goodies!

I love the simple outfit with the statement scarf. Really great way to make the scarf stand out, and even though the dress is simple, the purple is bold enough to stand up the the print. It really highlights the scarf, which I love!
