This is such a super-schoolmarm dress that it's almost shocking I wore it while on spring break. Look at that conservative hemline! Look at the bow! Straight-up schoolmarm. Instead of talking to school children about the glories of grammar when wearing this dress, I interviewed fit Lutherans for a faith story.
While I feel the dress screams schoolmarm, it also sort of mutters reporter. It has a 1940s His-Girl-Friday vibe. I just need a hat and a tailored jacket and perhaps Cary Grant yelling at me about a deadline. Highly styled hair would also help (totally never going to happen). Ooh! And red lipstick. And this photo should be black and white. Then it would be perfect.
(Dress is thrifted. Shoes are Target. Also: In my vocabulary, "schoolmarm" is kind of a synonym for "awesome.")
