I have an April birthday, but because of busy schedules I couldn't arrange to be available for a belated birthday celebration until this week. And, because this birthday celebration was with a colleague and mid-week, I knew I would be going straight from the office - a formal, corporate office.
For dinner and drinks, I knew I wanted to wear something a little pretty and flirty - and I had just the dress in mind: a little black dress with a flattering v-neck and trumpet style skirt. It's new and I've been saving it for the weather to warm up a bit, as it finally seemed to be doing. As so often it happens, there was really nothing wrong with wearing the dress to work - except, of course, for the cleavage exposure.
Luckily, I took along my black shalley: problem solved. Not only was my cleavage covered, but I stayed cool while the temperatures rose, and the shalley just looked like it was part of my outfit. I received several compliments from my colleagues who were impressed with the clever design as much as the way it so seamlessly blended with my overall look. Needless to say, my shalley saved the day!
