Dress (Limited); Shirt & Tights (Target); Boots (Nine West); Collar Necklace (Etsy);

This dress resides in the "wedding attire" section of my closet... and there it stays until I have a wedding to attend.  But today I decided to end the injustice of reserving this dress for wedding cake and chicken dances, and took this dress to the office.  We attended conference calls, analyzed reports, worked on PowerPoint presentations, and ate lunch at my desk.  The verdict?  We both prefer wedding cake and chicken dances :)

Great dress, dear! But I think it was happy it had a day at the office, even though there weren't any cake.:)

I love the color-blocking- the neon is so fun. I don't think I've ever seen you repeat an outfit twice- you must have an amazing closet! :)

Bravoe Runway said...

Lol.....so this is not a dress that will make another appearance at the office? I love the colours and right now the idea of wearing a skirt is terrifying.....it is too damn cold.

whitley hamlin said...

Love this dress with the boot! Girl, you are like a modern day Twiggy meets Nancy Sinatra! :)
Awesome
Thanks for the sweet comments on my post today... very proud of that shoot :)

Super cute look! I'm glad you and your dress made an appearance at work...and I'd say the chicken dance and wedding cake will always trump Powerpoint and conference calls :-)

Hi Heather, your dress is so elegant and beautifully colour blocked, adore the necklace with it.

Bethie The Boo said...

It's a great dress, I love that you brought it out to play at work - but I totally understand, I think most of my dresses prefer wedding cake and dancing too!

Frankly Heather, When you said " 'wedding attire' section of my closet", I thought "what are the other sections of her closet?"

I love these boots of yours. Do you have a dress boot section, too? hahaha. And ...of course, I love the sequin collar necklace which is literally neck lace.

Sheila said...

haha I love how you made it from a special occasion dress to a work attire dress. :)
