I am now surrounded by these
Tonight is my first Junior League of Dallas meeting!! I am so excited as I have anxiously been awaiting for the arrival of May since last September for this very reason. Tonight we will sign our Provisional contract, pay dues and meet all the other wonderful ladies. At my last Kappa event I met three girls that will also be in my provisional class and then I know another dear through Lilly. Though I am all about meeting loads of new people and making new friends it will be nice to have someone to sit with and go to dinner with afterwards. Mother, like many of you, was involved in Junior League for years and years and she has such wonderful stories. I know I am going to love it!
I had not really thought about tonight's outfit at all as I am racing to the meeting right after work. However, when last at Lilly I tried on a dress I knew would be perfect. I was not sold on the Tori dress at all until I tried it on (GASP, even Hopsy found a piece of Lilly she did not immediately love!), however, now I am obsessed! The dress is so comfortable and ever so practical too. The print is much more vibrant in person (the picture makes it look totally subdued), but still a bit vintage looking. This dress is super flattering and it perfect for work, play and travel. I event went ahead and also bought it in the Jubilee Toile. Anyway, without further ado here is my first JLD outfit (the sweater will be tied around my shoulders only if it gets chilly):
There is also a lovely dress Jackie Kennedy wore that I also hope to copy. Now I must decide which fabric suits which style dress. Oh the decisions!! I am getting so excited for India and I promise to post photos modeling my new dresses for all to see!
