No Stress Dress: Ann Taylor Lace Shift 3 Ways, 09.09.15.

I don’t usually wear lace. Come to think of it, this lace shift dress is probably the only lace piece in my closet.

I’ve only had this dress for a month or so, but it’s proven to be surprisingly versatile. The deep ruby color is striking in person but not overly girly, and the cut makes it easy to wear to the office and evening functions. The overall fit of the dress is true to size and it is available in regular, petite, and tall sizing; it also comes in a pretty dark blue color. Here are a few ways I’ve worn it so far.

      Thanks, Engineer L! I think this dress came in a lighter color in a previous season– maybe they’ll bring it back again in the spring. Anyways, I hope the fall semester is going well! ;-D
