Target sheath dress I also bought in black & red. I could have added a pink or stripey sweater (or a pink stripey sweater!) or a military jacket or a velvet jacket.
But I went with a classic black cardi because today was full of meetings, including a rather important one about a big project I've been working on at the office. Easier to go with reliable black & grey than something more edgy.
What I'm wearing:
Grey sheath dress, Target | Black boyfriend cardigan, Chadwicks | Black tights, Calvin Klein | Black kitten-heel pumps with silver buckles, Payless Shoe Source | Black beaded waterfall necklace, Torrid | Black & hematite cocktail ring, Aldo Accessories | Black beaded hoop earrings, random accessory store | "Raisin Rage" lipstick, Revlon
The meeting went well, & my proposals for the project were approved. I don't think my outfit had much to do with it, but there's always the chance that if I'd dressed more casually or more cliche goth, I wouldn't have been taken as seriously. That's the risk you take in the workplace, & I don't mind toning it down to get the job done.
How do you dress when you need to impress at work?
