I bought this Banana Republic dress right around the time I was finishing up the book, and (this doesn't spoil anything, don't worry, if you still haven't read it but are planning to) the style reminded me of when Skeeter went on a shopping spree at an Emilio Pucci sale and reinvented her style to short, graphic-print dresses and long, straight hair.

...Wow, it's like a mall threw up on me—there's a little bit of everything in that outfit list. Also, why are all dresses so freakin' short? (Because I'm a giant.) I digress. I did wear this to work, but I think it'll be more work appropriate when I can wear it with tights and boots. The length worked well for my inspiration, though, and I really liked how this outfit turned out. I think it's appropriately Pucci-esque.
