kate spade outfit- Sketchpad elyse dress

So this is the dress I bought at the outlet Friday...

This is the sketchpad elyse dress.  You can order it on katespade.com. on sale!  I love the fabric pattern!  It matches these dishes...
available at macy's and bloomies

I wore this elyse dress to church with black tights and some sparkley glitter heels but when I got home I took the tights off and put on some flats to run around after church.  I might need to hem this dress but, for now, I just belted it and bunched it up so it is shorter.  I would rather not have to hem it.  It takes me almost just as long to make one of my stripe skirts as hem (by hand) a silk dress.  This is a great run around dress that can convert to a lunch with the girls dress or even dinner with the right accessories. I think I may try it next with my Levi's jean jacket and black flats.
