Why I Love the Sheath Dress

Sheath dresses are such an easy win for working women. They are ready-made outfits that you can easily dress up or down depending on your footwear and accessories. While they hug a woman's curves, they are often very flattering as well, providing shape and giving extra emphasis to an hourglass figure. The sheath dress portrays a more commanding figure; you are going to sit up and listen to the woman who enters a room wearing a sheath dress. (Are they the next generation's pantsuit?) Best of all, they are a great "transition" dress between day and nighttime wear. You can start your day in a sheath dress at the office and easily wear it out to dinner or drinks that evening.

Can you tell I like this dress type for the office? I tend to save my sheath dresses for days when I will be more active as opposed to sitting behind my desk creating marketing plans and strategies. I just feel like people take me more seriously in this type of dress. Do you agree?

Today's dress was a find on my favorite site, RueLaLa.com. Leave a comment or message me if you'd like an invitation. I really recommend this site because the featured items are truly a good deal, as opposed to sites like Gilt where the savings are only superficial. MyHabit.com is another good deal site. I often find dresses for around 75% off the retail price.

Dress: Tahari ASL Diamond Patterned Sheath Dress

Booties: Prada Leather Cutout Ankle Booties

I'm such a sucker for a "matchy-matchy" outfit. The diamond pattern in my booties perfectly match the diamond pattern in the dress.

Shout out to Erin for loving my recent slew of blue and purple dresses. It's so cool that people actually read this blog.
