Lolita at work?

I admit, sometimes corporate dressing can be boring. Which is why I look forwards to smart casual Fridays at work because it is the time of the week when we can be expressive with our sense of style. My style usually depends on my mood for the week. There are times I want a laid back style, while some days I want to bring out the fashionista in me. It is always fun and definitely something that I look forward to every week.

This week, I came across cosplay when I was browsing through a friend’s Halloween party pictures. Among all the cosplay outfits, I really find Lolita dresses interesting and cute. I am an all-out girl and it means I love laces, necklines, and mini dresses. It got me wondering, can I pull it this outfit off on the corporate world?

It is a good thing I found these Tidebuy Lolita dress which I think will work in the corporate setup.

Here are some of the possible choices I found at Tbdress http://www.tbdress.com/Christmas-Cardigan/

Be a Standout with Jumpsuits in the Office

Aside from the usual blouse, skirt and dress, another good fashion must have for an office girl like me is a jumpsuit. It is non-conventional but just knowing the do’s and don’ts  will help you look chic and fabulous.Here are some of my tips:

1. Stick to plane colored suits

Prints on jumpsuits have the tendency to make it look too casual. Monochromatic shades, however, need not be boring. Choose interesting colors to make it a standout. Or if you want some print, I say choose ones in which prints are on the top part of the suit.

Must Have Shoes for Moms

I love shoes! While some women’s  eyes ogle on bags or jewelry, I tend to get more fascinated with shoes of every shapes, size and color. It can be a statement on its own and it can make or break one’s outfit. I love how a white shirt and jeans can be chic and sophisticated when paired with a high heeled red pumps, or a vintage dress for dinners with friends becomes trendy when worn with a pair of wedges.

Before I had kids, I have cabinets full of different pairs of shoes and since I am on the petite side, most of it are heeled ones, pumps, sandals, stilettos, and clogs.
