It is not everyday that you will find me wearing a silk dress, never mind a brightly patterned one……my style for work is usually classic and tailored, and for evenings, I often choose a sexy or edgy look over feminine…..well, variety is the spice of life, and I am glad I tried a new look with this beautifully made dress. It was on sale (75% off) at Viola Lovely, last one, my size. Did not need it, but I have worn it many times, including here, to work. How to decide if it’s work appropriate? It is not low cut, not tight fitting, not too short, not too casual. The print and flouncy hem is certainly flirtacious,so I would not wear this on a day if I had a presentation or needed to send a serious message – fine for ‘business casual’.
This dress would be ideal for a daytime festive event where you want to break out of the ‘sea of black’ wardrobe, and in the fall, it looks great with high tan boots…..finally, it just feels good! It’s fun to be a girly girl!
