Burgundy/Plum & Tweed

I went outlet shopping last weekend and ended up buying a very dark burgundy suit from the Ann Taylor outlet, along with this sort of burgundy/plum colored sheath dress. I loved the color of the dress and it fit very well off the rack. I'm hesitant to say "it fit perfectly" because I think most things could use alterations, even a slight tweaking, to make it fit perfectly. I wore the new dress today to court and to the office. I can't wait to wear it with the burgundy suit too, but this was a fun first time out of the bag. If you are interested in this dress, check your local AT outlet - it's $109 originally but they frequently have 40% off the whole store sales which makes it a slightly more reasonable  ~$65. I'm sitting in my apartment as I write this waiting to go out to a late happy hour, and I'm not going to change my clothes. I love dresses like this where I can ditch the blazer and still go out at night. I would definitely say this is a more "mature" outfit for going out than I usually wear, but I'm a bit too lazy to change right now :)
