Shein dress / Bean
+Ashe snake print shoes /
I remember times when I wore bodycon dresses a lot, but that was before words like 'work-life balance' became a part of my vocabulary. As I adjusted my wardrobe to make it suitable and appropriate for both work and off-work hours I did away with my bodycon dresses and replaced them with sheath dresses.When Shein offered me the opportunity to choose a dress from their wide array of fashionable dresses I saw this sheath dress and it got me reminiscing about the carefreeness of those days in my not-too-distant past. I wondered if I could incorporate a bodycon dress for work.
Since I had my work environment in mind I opted for this black bodycon dress because the hemline was at knee length, which made it suitable for the conservative environment at work.
In the first look I wore a racy lacy top underneath and covered up with my old olive bomber-style jacket. This look could take me from work to after-work hours.
In the second look I wore a bright pink shirt underneath. I love the appliquéd roses on this shirt. It gave the shirt a romantic feel, no? The shirt is quite loud so I left out the costume necklace for work. I only put on the costume necklace after work. As a secondary school teacher ( I teach an all girls school) I let my not-so-subtle fashionista vibe out on days when I do not have classroom duties, because a fashion overdose would be a distraction while teaching.
Do you own a bodycon dress? Do you still wear it?
