So today, I'm playing dress-up with proportions. I'm usually not one for shift dresses because I'm afraid that the monotone shape will make me look like I'm wearing a potato sack, but that can be easily remedied. I decide to put a ribbon around the waist to give the illusion of a more defined figure. But aside from that, I'm loving the two-toned colour of the dress that's all business in the back with plain black and a professional party in the front with a red plaid pattern and crisp collar.
Even though my blazer is a bit oversized and rather boxy for my taste, I found that it works really well with the straight cut of the shift dress. With that, the shoulder pads don't look drab and outdated either, but adds some welcomed dimension instead. Yes, this blazer has shoulder pads!
Hey employers, I'm a super versatile person. I could be a typical office drone with my overall work look, I could be a British professor with the plaid, or I could be a pseudo football player with shoulder pads. Like I said, versatile.
