They say you gotta dress for the job you want, so when I went to the job fair that ended up leading to my new job, I took that to heart. This is what I wore:
Calgary has found itself in another deep freeze. January can be dreary like that. I think one of the best ways to beat the dreariness is by looking good. I subscribe to the idea that if you look good, you feel good. So in cold weather, what better way to stay warm than to look smoking hot?
I’ve been trying to wear this dress in an OOTW for years. It goes so well with so many different things, and it can be worn up and down, casual, office, or more semi-formal. I also wanted to show off the perfect shift fit, not loose, but not so tight either. Just enough to wrinkle in the most flattering places.
On Saturday I attended my cousin’s Bachelorette Party! And we partied in style. An enormous limo was rented for the evening and fifteen of us, including the future bride, piled in. We went around the city and basically had an awesome time partying.
Many girls on New Years Eve will don beautiful sparkly dresses to go out. Now, I love a sparkly dress, but I don’t see the point of buying one for a single night of the year. My budget this year didn’t allow it anyway. I wanted an outfit that I could wear over and over again.
The weather is getting warmer, but not quite warm enough to go jacket-less yet. I like this outfit for the girly-rocker vibe and it would work for casual wear or as a fancier outfit.
We’re in that strange transition period between winter and spring and staying warm—but not too warm—and fashionable is a hard balance to find. Not to worry, I’ve found an outfit that strikes a balance between the two seasons perfectly.
