The Work Party Dress

There is no way that Christmas 2016 is just 4 days away? Seems like I was just bringing you all my holiday look book for 2015 in which I was late bringing you all. Well… in true Curvy Girl Chronicles fashion I am late with this year’s holiday looks as well. Please forgive me. This month has been a roller coaster with classes, work and honestly it’s been pretty emotional for me not being around family right now. But getting dressed up and glam always makes me feel better.

Now just like last year, I am still at the same company so no office holiday party for me but that doesn’t mean that I can’t dream and pull together a look for one right? I know that a lot of office parties take place right after work meaning your look has to be party ready but also work appropriate. When pulling together the office holiday party look I follow 3 rules:
  1.  Wear a blazer over a dress. This allows you to go from work right into party mode by simply removing your blazer.
  2. Watch the length and the fit of the dress. You don’t want your dress to be too tight or too short. How embarrassing would it be if your boss or co-workers saw all your business because you had to bend over to pick something up.
  3. Wear a cute flat to work and switch to classy heel before the party. This way you make sure your feet aren’t hurting before the festivities even get started.
Those my sistahs (and brothers) are my tips to pulling together that office party look. For me, I decided to go with knee length dress with a beautiful gold and silver simmer print. It just screamed holiday. I followed my #1 tip by wearing a black blazer and throw on a classy heel. I am in love with this look! And maybe next year will be my office holiday party time.
