Saturday Night dress goes to the Office

I promised that I’d be blogging more about the items I have in my closet by refreshing and repurposing them into new Looks.  So here I go.  Typically I work from home, which means my workday attire is basically tank tops & panties (with this polar vortex Toronto has been dealing with, hoodies & pyjama pants).  So whenever there’s a reason or opportunity to leave the house – I’m excited to plan an outfit.  This is the key contributing factor of me always wanting to get dressed up as fashionably as possible, making leaving the the house an event!

I’ve made the trek into the office twice this week – dunno how you normies do it everyday – just the ride on the streetcar one-way during the morning rush made me regret the decision immediately.  Anywhooo….here’s one of the Looks I brought into the office earlier this week.

Sadly, the following snaps are not as fabulous as you’ve previously seen on this space, as I do not have the magical photographic talents as Ms. Tami Falus does (she’s been kind enough to have taken most of the Looks I’ve blogged about so far – if I could keep her in my pocket as my own personal paparazzi, I totally  would! xo). 

All I’ve got is an iPhone camera in the women’s bathroom of my office…classy, I know! 🙂  So here’s what I’ve put together:

The dress – this was an end of season party dress from Reitmans that was a ridiculous $10.  It’s a bodycon type with sexy black mesh along the shoulder line and chest that turns into a simple stretchy solid navy-blue-sleeveless-above-the-knee hip-hugging dress.  In order to make it ‘office appropriate’ and winter manageable I covered up with a flowy thick sweater open cardi, belting it at the smallest part of my waist.  I really love how it turned out.  I was warm and felt sassy all day…plus if you have after-work drinks planned, with a handsome boy perhaps, that mesh is just flirty enough but lets you be a modest-winter-ready lady too :p

Social Media Enthusiast. Learning Designer. Curvy Fashionista. I'm a 30-something Canadian born Bengali (parents are from Kolkata, India...for those of you who need to know that type of thing). I've been chubby-curvy-plus-sized my entire life. Standing at a height of 5'2 and with a darker complexion, it has always been a challenge finding outfits or "looks" that really suit me. Living in the fashionable city of Toronto since birth, with a solid career has finally allowed me to embrace my love of pretty fashions in clothing, shoes and everything in between.

    I just wanted to tell you that I think your blog is fabulous! I’m learning a lot about my own wardrobe and have been inspired to try and bring new looks to my somewhat older pieces. Great stuff friend! 🙂
