And here is the 100% cotton Clipdot Pleated Shirt Dress in 00 petite (also available in solid pink cotton). The silhouette of this dress is flattering and the fit in the waist was only slightly roomy - fixable for someone my size simply with a belt. The pleated skirt has medium fullness, which is enough to give it shape yet not too full for the workplace. I'm also happy to report there are on-seam pockets on both side!
Talbots sandals (on sale in 4 colors! runs slightly small)The button-up front goes all the way down the length of the dress. This dress would be cute for work under a cropped cardigan/blazer, or I can picture it for weekend strolls or with a sun hat for an afternoon touring wineries (a girl can dream!).

And if you're into lace, this scalloped dress that I haven't seen before looks promising. I love the look of feminine scalloped lace against the grosgrain ribbon, and the gently flaring skirt. The deep mullbery color looks gorgeous, although more fall than spring/summer. If anyone has tried this on, please share about the fit and quality!
