First up - My attire for a coworker's semi-casual wedding reception in a Chicago high-rise. She got married in Pennsylvania, but was kind enough to host a second reception for all of us when they returned.
A wanted a fun, summery dress - so I picked the flowery-est thing I owned and dressed it up with shiny gold. This dress was actually put out by The Limited in the summer of 2011, but I found it on eBay (new with tags) in the spring of 2012 for $14. I love a bargain. And skirt ruffles.
Enjoying the reception with a few coworkers from my old job. Love their dresses!
