Work Hot, Play Hotter

Doesn’t everyone need a look to go from work to a night out?  To transition from my corporate office to a night on the town, I morphed one hot dress into a COMPLETELY different outfit using a pair of pants and a tube of lip gloss. Check out my creative way to sport a mini dress at work:

I snagged this Crisscross Purple Floral Print jersey dress in my Peter Pilotto for Target haul and though I originally planned it as a vacation piece, I managed to make it office friendly with a few adjustments.

Jersey material doesn’t wrinkle or bulk, so I folded the bottom half leaving just enough space to tuck into my pants. This busy print is already a lot for a conservative office, so I stuck to black pants and matching purple pumps to simplify my look.

So yes I walk up in work like the fashion forward yet HR compliant employee I am, and no one has any idea the top they keep complementing me on is actually a freak’um dress!

As for your coworkers? If any of them catch you after the wardrobe change and ask where you’re headed just look at them like this…

… and proceed to keep walking out that door like, “I got a party to go to!”
