Classic Fall Prep in Gray Jessica London Ponte Knit Dress

This fall is all about classic looks in shades of gray, and I'm totally feeling preppy! So...I got out my pearls and my houndstooth swing coat and started pulling together a demure, old-school look that feels fresh and on trend. The perfect base for this preppy outfit was a super comfortable gray Jessica London Ponte Knit Dress.

The fit and flare shape is so easy to wear and flattering for many figures...while the seaming at the bust and the waist adds some shape to the dress. For some extra flair and dimension, I decided to wear a denim shirt underneath the dress and then set the whole outfit off with a pop of lemon heels.

*SWOONING* Pardon me while I pick up my jaw from the floor after trying on the gorgeous plussize Isabel Toledo collection for Lane Bryant. The collection is full of luxurious fabrics, high-quality hardware, unique designs and gorgeous draping...in short, everything I've been searching for in the plussize market! I can't tell you how wonderful it was to actually meet Isabel and her husband, Ruben, and the incredible corporate team from Lane Bryant. The event was a raging success, attracting a who's who in the plussize fashion world.
