I purchased this black dress from H and M several months ago for several reasons: A.) my closet has a serious lack of black dresses especially for work or dressy occasions, B.) it had a really great shape and C.) how could I beat getting a classy looking dress for only $35? Now this dress is cleave-tastic as you can see from the first picture when I wore it out to a dance performance and that definitely wasn't going to fly in a business setting. What's a girl to do to get more wear out of a simple dress??? I added a silk shirt with some pizazz and I loved the outcome. Button-up shirts usually read boring to me, but the sheerness and pattern of this particular number, kept this shirt on the side of right. An office scandal avoided!
Have you ever transformed a dressier piece in your closet to something work appropriate? What did you do to make that happen?
