The following is what I wore to lunch. I originally intended to wear it all day, until I realized how short
this dress is. NOT work appropriate. I will admit that SWR is certainly not the most helpful when it
comes to professional work wear considering I work at a salon and not only is office wear not required,
it also wouldn’t really be appropriate for the kind of work that I do in terms of fashion and in practicality.
I also run the risk of ruining whatever I wear to work and a well tailored suit would be too much of a loss
if I splattered color on it.
That being said, I feel like I do a pretty good job of wearing clothes that are appropriate for work in
terms of modesty. This dress didn’t pass that test. So after lunch, I swapped out the metallic dress for black
dress, ditched the sweater (I’d be too hot), added a tie (that I tucked down into the dress), and put on
black tights instead. Much better for work. And Kai said he liked that outfit better. But we didn’t get
pictures. So you get to see the ugly stepsister outfit from yesterday instead. Even though I still like
this one, too.

Yes, this dress is from GapKids. I saw it a couple of years ago and thought it would be the perfect New
Years Dress. I get compliments on it every single time I wear it so I figure who caaaares if it’s from the
kids store, really. I also wore this on Christmas Day last year with possibly one of my favorite hairstyles
