I bought this cute dress from Body Central, planning to wear it to work. I didn’t know at the time that most of their dresses are much sluttier in person than they appear on the models in the catalog, but with this dress I got lucky. The fit is just a bit relaxed (that must explain why it was massively discounted. ), and the neckline and length are appropriate for work, as long as I wear dark tights. I might not feel comfortable in this length at work with natural stockings, but opaque tights add some modesty.
My previous post, What I Wear to the Vet features the other BC dress I ordered at the same time that didn’t work out so well (until I modified it).
While this looks like a dress and a shrug, it’s actually one piece. This kind of dress makes it easy to look like you “put together” an outfit on a busy morning without really taking any time or thought. It came with a little satin bow stitched to the bodice but for more interest I pinned a polka dot bow on top. And since it was such a busy morning, I just added a few black bracelets and simple heels.

I feel a little bit vintage but still adequately dark today. I think I love this dress!!
