I just picked this dress up at Forever 21 a few days ago (it's no longer online, though!). I was shocked to find a dress from there that was borderline work-appropriate in length. I say borderline because I kind of have to tug on it all day to keep it at the length you see photographed, but I'll settle for borderline work-appropriate if it only costs $28.
I had big plans for this cute little dress. Scarves, necklaces, accent colors.... but none of them happened, because the night before I wore this dress, this happened:
|That little owl is a heating pad. Matt wanted to make sure you all knew he doesn't need stuffed animals to feel better. That would just be silly... :)|
Matt came down with some cold symptoms and I was up for several hours in the night taking care of him. So when the alarm went off the next morning, I repeatedly hit snooze way past my ability to shower or get creative with my outfit, and just ran out the door with what was lying on the floor of my closet. I just consider myself lucky that my slippers and husband's football jersey weren't closer than this blazer and these heels. It could've been ugly. I didn't even grab those bracelets. I found them in the bottom of my purse when I got to work. Bam! Accessorized.
Anyway, I have high hopes for this dress! It's lightweight and only elbow length, so I'm sure I'll get plenty of wear out of it this summer!
Also, one of my coworkers at work found my blog. And by found it I mean found me looking at it at work and bullied me into letting him see it. Hopefully the secret doesn't get too far though. The last I want anyone to know is that the overdressed receptionist loves herself so much, she posts her outfits on the Internet...
