The Chain Gang

When I originally bought this dress I thought I would be using it as a bathing suit cover up this summer but it turns out I can wear it to the office as well. I wanted to "toughen" up the dress and did so by piling on multiple necklaces and wearing my pointiest heels and by pointy I mean, if I kick you...it's gonna hurt.

I bought these Nine West heels for just $29.99 at my local Marti & Liz shoe store (holla)! When I saw them on the rack I ran over to them and then started whizzing around the store with them on. That store brings me such happiness which is why I pop in about once a week to see all the new merchandise. I wish I could live in there....my inner shopaholic rather likes that idea.

  2. She hits it out of the park, again! I'm so glad you ventured to try this dress for office-wear, because it really works! I like how you added the extras to make more of an outfit out of it. You look stunning, as usual!

  3. Awesome deal on the shoes! It is awesome that you're getting so much wear out of this dress. A bathing suit cover up and a dress for work? On nice days, just wear your bathing suit under it and drive strait to the pool when you're done haha

  13. Ah I love that black pendant necklace! I love the layered necklaces in general, and that dress deserves more outings than just the pool so I'm glad you're showing it some office love. Looks awesome.
