Still wondering what to wear to the office party? I just saw a post on Fishbowl yesterday of someone asking if a short / spaghetti strap dress was appropriate… and cringed. At least they are asking; however, a good rule of thumb is: if you have to ask, you already know it’s not.
As for this dress – I adore it. I found it on resale in Houston around 2012, and it has been a great black cocktail dress since. I’ve worn it for so many occasions and events. What I think I like best is the ‘cheer’ skirt style – so many years as a cheerleader I’m partial! But it adds a fun bit of energy to an otherwise very understated black dress. However even the splits on the dress are long enough to still be appropriate. And the 3/4 sleeve and high neck keeps it modest.
Here I’ve paired it with black patent leather peep toe pumps. I also found these on resale forever ago in Austin at Moss. I love them for events as their platform makes them far more stable and comfortable than their height would otherwise allow.
My wrap has been in my wardrobe since sophomore year of high school – I got it for a formal dance, and still wear it all the time.
Consider your clothes carefully and celebrate some corporate cheer!
All my best,
