Happy Friday! In honor of everyone’s favorite day of the workweek and Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d share a little day-to-night action today featuring my favorite double-breasted glen plaid blazer and new favorite strappy black cocktail dress.
As discussed in many past day-to-night posts (most recently here and here), my favorite desk-to-drinks trick is to find a dress with a nice work-friendly length that has festive back or shoulder detailing which can easily be obscured by a sweater or blazer during the day.
Often, there’s little time after work to go home and change into what you might ideally wear to drinks or your date, and changing into your LBD in the bathroom at the office before heading out the door still leaves you open to the risk of an awkward elevator ride with superiors who may raise an eyebrow (warranted or not) at your scantily-clad après-work self.
Look 1 & 2: DRESS: Dress the Population (short version here) | JACKET: c/o Reiss (similar HERE & HERE) | SHOES: Saint Laurent (similar HERE, HERE and HERE) | BAG: M2Malletier | SUNGLASSES: Miu Miu c/o DITTO | LIP: Make Up For Ever (28) & Giorgio Armani (400)
Since Valentine’s Day falls next Sunday while I’ll be at fashion week in NYC, Rich and I are celebrating a little early this week and I look forward to getting some good use out of this amazing dress.
