socks heels

(thrifted forever21 dress, zana bayne belt, fergie shoes. click the images for hi-res)

I had a job interview today, and I wore this dress to it. I think the interview went well! With opaque tights, my Chanel flats, and a suit jacket, I looked perfectly professional. Ditched the tights, added a belt and heels, and the dress goes into a great casual look. I love pieces that can be dressed up and dressed down. Plus, the dress was thrifted from a Plato's Closet, and cost me $8.

 Here is a rare photo of me smiling. I was so happy about the 80 degree day in Chicago that I felt it warranted a smile :)

I agree, pieces that can be dressed up or down are worth their weight in gold. They are the heavy lifters of my closet! This might be why I have so many black dresses in my closet!

beautiful outfit. that F21 dress looks expensive and loving the sock idea; must try it!

meagan said...

thanks so much! the fabric of the dress is surprisingly substantial...it doesn't feel as cheaply-made as a lot of their products. a great thrift score.
