A little plain, but I like it.

joanne tagged this gamine

My favorite. Until tomorrow...love the shoes, the monochromatic look, the proportions. Perfect for the theatre, drinks, ladies who lunch...

annie tagged this Absolutely Perfect

Oh...this has got to be one of my favorites so far...love the black on black of the belt against the dress. Bravo Sheena!

Mariah (was "Juneau") tagged this Simplicity with Meaning

The simple black belt looks great with the dress -- and I like the necklace, both in design/appearance and that it helps sustain employment for the women making it. So cool that you brought in another cause to your own benefit project!

Laura Daly tagged this Oh, so right!

Sophistication, thy name is Sheena!

Beth tagged this Cute

Meryl tagged this Cute

Love the look, except while the shoes are fabulous, I'm not sure they go so well with the rest of the outfit.

Donna McBride tagged this Cute

Awesome I think what you are doing is wonderful keep up the good work.

mria tagged this Cute

oh I wish you would sell the pattern! minimal production costs, more fundraising :D

Jane Austin tagged this Cute

Guess I'm just too old to appreciate the look. Bicycle shorts only work for a "litle girl" look. Who wants that? However, love your hair and the necklace.
