Seriously, I truly appreciate all my favorite career fashion bloggers’ great cameras, photogenic genes, and super photos, because getting one good picture is so much harder than it looks. I wasn’t even going to share this picture until I tinkered with a filter on my iPhone Camera+ app, and suddenly the berries from my prized Pyracantha bush (I raised it from a baby) looked like gorgeous Halloween lights (my fave holiday).

Obviously, I had to share the picture. Only I should have taken a second picture of just the dress, because as soon as I sat down at my desk, I overheated like a tea kettle boiling over, and had to shed the sweater and the belt.

Then people kept saying, “You are so dressed up today!” I felt kind of guilty, because this Jones New York dress from Ross Dress for Less is really a nightgown with darts and a lining. So comfy. And machine washable.

No, nothing I’m wearing came from Kmart, but that Pyracantha bush started out as a $5 stick from a Kmart dead plant end of season sale.

If I tell you how many pairs of different Mary Jane style heels I own, I’ll have to kill you. How many pairs do you own?
