Shifty Business


There are few things I love more than a good multipurpose dress (except for riding boots, apple pie, a really good lipstick, 3 day weekends…. ok so maybe a lot of things). I get cranky if I can only wear a dress for a single purpose, like a dress I can ONLY wear on the weekend, or that is ONLY appropriate for weddings, etc. That’s why I was thrilled when I realized that I could wear this (admittedly spur of the moment clearance rack impulse buy) shift dress to work AND a wedding!

With a conservative black bag, some sassy leopard loafers, and the quintessential pearl studs, it’s perfectly appropriate for all but the most conservative workplaces:

Then a few weeks later, when you’re panicking that you have a wedding to go to and no time to shop, pair it with some blingy earrings, a pretty-in-pink crossbody, and the most ridiculous glittery heels you’ve ever seen, and BAM! Wedding attire achieved!
