This is one of the sewing portions of the Wear to Where Series put together by Katy and Angelica. Go read how this all came about here.
Nothing says office attire to me more than the classic pinstripe and crisp white shirt. Its simple and classic and so many ways to dress it up with accessories.
|Meghan Markle (AKA Rachel Zane in Suits)|
This is how it turned out...the skirt is a paper pattern from Simplicity, tried tested and true, it has never let me down...only now looking at the size I made the last time and the one I made this time...YIKES! I love the thick waist band and the invisible side zipper on this skirt.
The shirt is the Button Up Shirt by Winter Wear Design...will for sure be needing to size down next time and adjust it to my shape. I added mother of pearl buttons down the front.
The red shoes for a splash of color, and my favorite chunky necklace to complete the look.
I haven't been this dressed up in about 6 years now. This whole experience reminded me of when I actually left the house for work as a manager in women's wear. Do I miss it...not sure, some days I do.
This last one I just had to throw in there, it made me laugh and I figured why deprive you of a good chuckle, ha!
Until next time, xx.
