Work Outfit

If I were to name one inappropriate aspect about this outfit is that the skirt is way too tight.




Shirt: Forever 21 (12.80)
Skirt: Joe Benbassat (Unknown)
Heels: Dexter by Payless (22.99)

So, why exactly am I wearing this skirt?

...As much as I love dressing in an office appropriate way, I don't like doing laundry. And I hate dry cleaning. As these things are required to keep up the office look, sometimes I venture into questionable territory.

  2. You still look good. I hate that feeling though...wondering if you're pushing the limit a little too far.

  3. GAH. I hate dry cleaning so much. And I HATE doing laundry. I am worried that I will get an office job and have to actually do laundry. (my husband does mine-- we trade chores a lot!)

  5. I hate when I buy something and when I go to wash it THAT is when I realize it is dry clean only...why don't I ever check the tags...plus I hate that almost everything you get from Banana Republic or J Crew is "lay flat to dry"...sigh...ok I am done complaining...lol!

  7. Eh, screw it. Sometimes I get a kick out of wearing 'questionable' things when I'm out of clean work clothes. This really doesn't look inappropriate at all though, it just looks fitted.. not overly skin tight.

  11. I still think it's appropriate in my book! :D Way to be more creative though! I try to avoid anything that requires dry-cleaning!

  12. It's only really "questionable territory" when you buy new underwear b/c you don't want to do laundry.

  14. I think this look is fine, Aki. Love the classic vibe and nope I don't think the skirt is too tight. :)

    Regarding the all polka ensemble, yes! my confidence level did shrink a bit when I got stares for wearing too many dots in one outfit.haha

  17. SassyUptownChic - I think it may also be because I'm not a fan of the ruched look.

    Fabrizia - Thank you! This makes me feel a lot better about it.

    Mugdha - Hey. Hey. Stop airing my "dirty laundry".
