Another Mad Men-Inspired Look!

This is the other flirty office frock in my arsenal... although I admit to preferring the other one as I find it to be more flattering.  But this one is adjustable and the material is slick (ie: When I spill my coffee down the front of me, it doesn't stain if I act fast!  Score!). 

The cami is pretty essential to this dress... Its one of those trixy minxes that appears conservative in the breasticle area until you sit down.... and then the front pleats pop open like a Jack-in-the-Box (a lesson I learned the hard way the first time I took this one for a spin).

  1. Haha I use the word "breasticle" too! But I thought it meant manboobs (breast + testicle)? Oh well, you look cute regardless! :)

  2. Super cute... I your little blog inspired me to do a challenge on my own blog... I have 10 weeks of work left... or 50 days, until I pack up and head off to medical school... so I've decided that I'm going to try and go the entire 50 days without wearing the same thing twice... I can wear a skirt or a shirt twice, but not together, and I can only wear a dress once....

    Anyway, it's been super fun even though I've only done a few days of it!

  3. I have this dress (Rue La La?) and I know just what you mean about it popping open. I took mine to a tailor to put a small snap on the front. I do love the material though.

  4. I see my readers have found you on my sidebar. You will love Elle, she reminds me of you. If I saw this outfit anywhere it would just scream Kate to me. I love it!

  5. That is a super cute dress. Do you mind my asking how much it cost?

  7. Calvin Klein makes the best work dresses. And I find them super cheap at TJ Maxx all the time.

  8. Va va voom- love it on you! And I hate it when I think something is easy to wear...until I realize I've flashed an entire Olive Garden with my funbags. Eep.

    Been there, done that, hate it. >:|
