Charmant

It took black lace week to think of wearing this dress as a skirt. The top is far too boobilicious for work, but that’s easily concealed with a layer. A sweater and blazer take the dress from slutty to charming.

Blazer, Cami. Sweater, Ann Taylor Loft. Dress, Forever 21. Tights, Target. Booties, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Charm necklace, thrifted.



When you see me against this background, I’m standing in the hall and the camera is in the bathroom. Doubly charming, no?




And most charming of all…my butt.

Long time listener, first time caller.

Your description of the camera's placement literally made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that.

I desperately want to see the top of the dress!

Oh, I LOVE the patterned tights with the lace dress! That's fantastic! Subtle pattern-mixing, but still really effective. I'm trying that one out!

PS- I GOT THE JOB!!! I GOT THE JOB!!!

What does the top of the dress look like?

Alyssa said...

Love this - I love lace overlay on skirts/dresses.

I'm with the others, can we see the whole dress?

I always try to button jackets that way but I feel like it doesn't look right. You look great!

Beatrice said...

Red with black lace! Sweet! hellooooo why didn't I think of this before? :D

Nice way to combine the lacy tights with the risqué skirt and still have it all feel work appropriate. I like the velvet blazer.

Sheila said...

Well, it's a great butt, you have to show it off!

I really like this look. How is your black lace theme going over at work?

I dig it. Love the two different patterns of lace against each other.

This looks gorgeous. Love the jacket.

What a fantastic way to style that blazer. I'd never think to button the TOP half of a mandarin collared item, but it looks fab!
