One Bare Shoulder

I'll be honest: Until recently, I had never considered wearing a one-shoulder dress to work.

But few months back, while watching Jane the Virgin, I noticed that Petra wore one-shoulder dresses on a regular basis, and they didn't look that out of place in an office setting. Granted, she's a fictional character who is supposedly running a hotel in Miami, but I'll take my justification where I can get it.

Even with my "Petra clause," though, I really debated whether or not today's dress was work worthy. But there is not too much skin showing, and the total look is quite professional. I even played up the fun factor with my triangle dangle earrings, a present from my sister, Gail, a few years back. Most of the time, with my hair falling in front, you probably couldn't even tell I had one bare shoulder.

So, what do you think? Would you wear a one-shoulder dress to work?

I actually got a lot of compliments on this dress when I wore it to the office today -- from people who normally don't pay my clothes much attention. I also got a "Michele's got guns" comment from someone, which I don't think I've ever heard before (from anyone other than my husband).
