It's a big, three-day event where I'll not only meet new contacts and big names in my field, but also see lots of old friends, so it's a mixed bag of fun and professional elements. I'm thinking of buying these boots, probably in black, and I would adore having a sweaterdress to go with them. It would need to be professional *enough* (I'm 5'9", so sometimes hems that are slightly mini on others are extremely mini on me), but should also be cute as heck so I make a good impression overall. I'm a big fan of cowl necks, though this isn't a requirement, and I'd love if it were a silver-gray, black, or any deep jewel tone. I'm not too fond of cheap, ribbed sweater material - that thin stuff that screams 'cheap fabric'."
Hi Amanda! I tried to avoid the cheap knits by only picking sweater dresses that have some natural fiber in them. Hope you like them!

Mitchy here: I'd be happy to never put on another pair of pants. What this means for you is that I love all kinds of dress shopping - especially cute patterned dresses and party dresses. I also love colorful apparel and jewelry as well as vintage-styled home decor. Other things I don't usually put on resumes: expert cat wrangler, road tripper, and connoisseur of bad movies.
