Phillip Lim for Target, again.

Ever since the Phillip Lim for Target line launched, I have been obsessing over this dress.
But I have never been able to find my size in stores & ordering online seemed risky with such mixed reviews. 
I was so excited the other day when I found it at Target... and on a clearance rack!
I was with a friend and I grabbed the dress, checked the size, and gave it a nice hug
I think my exact words to her were "I need this dress! I have been wanting it for so long & it's on sale! I am buying it!"
She didn't argue, but I don't think she was thrilled with the purchase- her facial expressions gave her away. 
When I tried it on at home, I loved it by itself but it didn't feel too office appropriate and there is no way this dress was only getting pulled out on date nights and weekends. 
Adding the blazer and rolling up the sleeves seemed to give it a more "office feel" and I was giddy over the pops of mint & red. 





(The dress pre blazer) 




What do you guys think? 
A: does the blazer make it office appropriate? 
and 
B: is it office appropriate without the blazer?


Have a great day!
Xoxo,
Nicole

  6. This is the nice dress which covert the whole body and also a stylish design. Really this is the fact the simplicity has their own beauty. if we bring these dresses in the gaming environment it would be better for us. because there not many dress up games for girls to introduce these types of fun games.
