Reporting for Double Duty

I’ve been looking for a burgundy dress for a couple of weeks and have recently found this classic piece online. The dress is perfect to wear both at the office and on a casual date. Its cut also allows us to layer it as the weather turns frosty. I styled this piece in such a way that a quick change of handbags facilitates the transition from work to leisure. A leopard-printed clutch is my first choice for adding a fashionable touch to simple dresses. By the way, did you check out J.Crew’s new arrivals? Among this season’s items are sweaters, clutches, shoes, and tops that feature the leopard print.

    Dear Danielle,
    that burgundy dress looks very nice and I like the long golden necklace so much. For work I always dress very casual. Indeed I have to contact very important people through my work, but most time only over phone conference or email. For face to face conference or a meeting I would wear this beautiful dress because it looks classy and formal. You made a great choice!
    Have a wonderful day, Danielle :-*
