“Can I wear this to work? Or is it too sexy?” This is the first thing I asked the sales team at Eloquii when I tried on this dress in their brand new Chicago store, located in The Shops at Northbridge. Although I have also asked my friends, the jury is still out on this. I love pieces that can be worn for both work and play, and even though no one can give me a straight answer on whether this piece accomplishes that, I think it can definitely pass for office-appropriate.
It’s all about the little details in this dress: The ruffles, the lace, and the tie waist. Eloquii’s Lace Overlay Long Sleeve Dress with Ruffle Sleeves is a mix between delicate and fashion-forward. Since I am short, the dress is a little long on me, but I like that I can control the length with the tie waist feature. In this shoot, I bloused the dress a bit to give it a shorter look. So what do you guys think? Is this work appropriate? Or should I save it for a first date (or third) look? Am I overthinking this? (Most likely, yes)
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 18 in Eloquii’s Lace Overlay Long Sleeve Dress with Ruffle Sleeves, which is a size larger than my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly. I wanted the dress to fit a little loose around my body, which is why I sized up.
