good things come in threes... right?




James Perse top, BB Dakota vest, Topshop pants, Dolce Vita shoes

A casual work outfit. A reader recently asked me whether or not a specific item would be considered appropriate for work. When asked such questions, my response is usually, "well, it depends where you work". I thank my lucky stars that I work where I do, because I doubt faux leather harem pants, a huge fur vest and 5 inch platforms would fly anywhere else.

  1. Once upon a time, I thought I was going to be a lawyer, and was going to resign myself to wearing suits most of the time. My plan was to dress like myself outside of work, and spend my lawyer's salary on beautiful things I knew I would hardly wear. THANKFULLY I decided against that path!

    I love that you can wear a furry vest like that on a casual day at your work. So fun!

  11. I love this look on you! The Chanel Yeti suit is best left to the runway and Joe Zee, but a faux fur vest is a very wearable and fun way to incorporate the trend into an everyday look.

  17. Yup, working in fashion and design allows for a pretty liberating "office wardrobe." I've gotten away with some crazy shit in the past :)

  18. I can't believe you work at a place that this is acceptable! I can only dream, haha. Love the Dolce Vita heels and the faux fur vest - you pull off any look with such flare!

  21. I definitely envy your ability to wear (almost) whatever you want to work. Office attire is tedious and boring! (read: NO FUN) haha you look great in faux fur and I love your shoes!
