What I Wore: Pushing the Limits on the Last Day

I wore this outfit on the last day of my old job. I had it in my closet hidden away sight and couldn't remember why.Well, it's really short, but it has a BOW on it. I mean, sure, I couldn't bend over properly to be sure I am not flashing anyone, but it has a freaking BOW on it.

Forever 21 black and white dress with bow

Me as I was getting ready: 
"I should probably change my dress. It's really short."
"I already have my hose on and it's a lot of effort to take them off. Like a lot of effort"
"Screw it. What are they going to do? Fire me for too short of a dress on my last day."
"Screw it. I'm wearing it." 
And that is how I ended up wearing an entirely too short of dress that I couldn't bend over in.

  3. You look SO ADORABLE! LOVE LOVE LOVE that dress. Haha, it might be a tad bit short for work, but you're right. It has a bow on it, which instantly makes it acceptable for any and all occasions. :)

  6. Beautiful dress! You are wearing tights, so that helps with the short length. ;)

  7. Super cute dress! Love the bow. I think tights definitely help with things that seem short. Great trick.

  15. Exactly...it's your last day! What are they gonna do? I don't think it's too short though! Especially since you are wearing tights :-)

  18. Haha I love it! Way to be a bad a on the last day! I have a dress almost identical to this one, but it was from TJ Maxx. My dress was like $15 and it's dry clean only, which I found out after I washed it... Hopefully you'll have better luck with yours :)
