Powerful You

February 13, 2014


I love this Shoshanna “Alessandra” dress for the office. This outfit says: That woman is a go-getter. Blue, the preferred color in corporate America, is a strong, serious and powerful hue. Pair it up with yellow and gold tones and you will be unstoppable. Yellow is warm, happy, and energetic. What a great balance, don’t you think? These two colors go so well together.


Don’t be afraid to use bold colors to the office. One bright solid color can be enough. Use these hues to help inspire you and motivate you too (especially as we endure this long and cold winter!). Keep makeup toned down with neutrals for a nice balance.


This dress is a great example of versatility. I paired this outfit together with my reliable Fendi open-toe pumps for a chic creative work event. Although, I would definitely switch up the shoes to a nude or black pointy pump for the office, and fun strappy sandals for a night out.


Always remember that trends come and go. Classic YOU is all you need to help you feel confident and strong in and out of the office (or home, or classroom…). So tell me, what’s your power outfit? Please share!

A big thank you to Dressed by Lori for another great idea for our wardrobes. Please make sure to stop by (or visit online!) for all your dress needs. You will find everything from beach dresses to day dresses and work dresses to special occassion ones too.

Thank you to Jyoti of Stella & Dot for helping us style this dress beautifully with the Norah pendant and Norah cuff. Stunning!

    I just adore this striking blue! Beautiful combination. I must say, I am just loving Radiant Orchid right now for my power color. It is just so vivid and is just the perfect color of the year. Happy Valentine’s Day. Your new friend from LBC.

    My power outfit weirdly is actually a suit. Anything with fitted slacks (I like Express Columnist pants. They actually have some sexiness to it without being too provocative). I love dresses with that cut you’re wearing, except I usually wear them to special occasions, like an office party. Other women wear them at work but I don’t feel comfortable doing so. I feel like if I did, I would attract the wrong kind of attention (!). So the dresses I wear are usually more casual and have a flowy cut. Most days I’m pretty casual in jeans and boots but if I know I’m having an important meeting I’ll at least wear slacks.
