Does This Outfit Work?

This is a new kind of post for She Spys The Buys! I bought something and I am looking for genuine reader opinion/reaction. This is a picture of me wearing a new t-shirt dress I got from Target with gladiators, a long coin pearl necklace (I know you can't see it but, it's there I promise) and my Loeffler Randall for Target slouchy woven leather bag from last summer. I thought of adding a belt but all the belts I have are too big for me, that's going on my shopping list. I thought it was a perfect comfy yet professional outfit to wear to the office! Especially because, at first glance the dress looked way more high end than Target, it had a little bit of a Tory Burch vibe in my opinion.

Now, hopefully you like the outfit so I can tell you my secret without you automatically thinking, "so, that's why that outfit didn't work." The "dress" is really a sleepshirt from Gillian O'Malley my favorite undewear/pj designer at Target. I don't care I'll scream it from the rootops... I'm wearing pajams at work! It was a great price for a professional and amazingly comfortable work dress which I recieved many compliments on.

Awesome Deal

I have been perusing the sales on the web and I found this dress that I like. It's a smidge pricey but I would definitely splurge on it as it can be worn as two dresses... wear the tank dress on its own, the shell as a swim cover-up, or wear both together and the belt can be used in other outfits or as a headband. I'm all about utilitarianism because it makes the dress really worth it. Unfortunately, I don't think that it would look right on me with my hips but, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't benefit from it!

UPDATE 8/1/09-- When I first posted this dress it was $54.00 marked down from $195.00, now it is $39.00!!! That is 80% off!!! If you were thinking about it before here's some incentive...

UPDATE 8/5/09-- I got the dress in the mail. First of all it's green and purple so I feel a little like The Joker... why so serious?! Well, looking at the picture I thought it was green and brown. Not a big deal. Overall, it looks OK but, I feel like it's a little too fancy to wear to work which is a bummer. Still worth the $39.00.
