I found myself agreeing with Kari (http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....ack-outfit)--printed dresses ARE the perfect Fast Fallback Outfit! They're what I grab when I'm in a rush or don't want to spend time thinking about mixing and matching separates and creating an outfit. It's an instant all-in-one outfit!
1-2. This is my version of Kari's FFBO scribble dress. And here's the debut of my black doctor bag. This is the perfect bag for this dress, as it doesn't compete with the pattern but still is dressy and structured. I wore this to work and then to a wine and cheese social to meet other parents at DD's new school (she starts K in the fall). I wanted to wear something nice and a little bit dressy, but not too fancy or intimidating fashion-wise.

3-4. Today I'm doing Rae's paper doll suggestion for me--purple sheath dress, cognac leather jacket and boots. It seemed more like a fall outfit, esp. given how warm it was today, but I had orders to follow! The dress is sleeveless so it was fine without the jacket. This is another good FFBO dress--it's not printed but has a textured polka dot pattern. This is one of my most favorite dresses--it really flatters my apple figure.
