potd - blue dress, toned down

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

I love my new blue dress from Macy's. But I was told that the print was a little too loud for the office.




So I put a short-sleeve sweater on top, and ended up with a new look for me.

Adorable! That dress has lots of other work potential too - blazers, cardigans, good stuff!

I tried with a black blazer and a black cardi, but both were too hot!

Thanks! I bought the necklace at Talbots several years ago - surprisingly edgy for Talbots - maybe that's why it was on sale.

I like the second look better, but I will admit I'd be tempted to continually wear the dress as-is just to annoy whoever was telling me my clothes were "too loud for the office."

Jeez, I mean, whatever. Just because whoever told you that has a dreary and boring life doesn't mean you need to as well. I'm really incensed.

Thanks, pal. We were also told not to chew gum.

You should start taking "gum breaks" with the smokers.

It's a pretty formal office (government contractor) and DC's a conservative town when it comes to fashion.

but but but...it's SUMMER. Don't they relax the rules at all for summer? Especially for a super-cute dress like that.

Love the dress. I'm a sucker for blues and purples, and that's a great print.

Weird about the "too loud" thing.

seriously, someone would say that about the dress? I find that hard to imagine in my office.

Yep! I feel lucky that I don't have to wear a suit every day.

Whatever
I love the dress. Tell whatever fashion authorities there that you work in an international environment and they should be respectful of things. That should fly there and would totally fly in the field. AH

I love both outfits. I don't think the print is too loud for the office but that's just me. I think it's adorable!
