OOTD: Funky 70s Professional Dress

Slowly but surely I am building my corporate wardrobe. I am lucky enough to work in a casual workplace that allows me to express my own personal style. Skirts, rompers, tank tops, strapless dresses, I love them all – no suits or pants at work for me!

But now and then I have to attend a work-related event or function and the panic sets in? I have a closetful of clothes but nothing to wear!!


I found this dress at Fashion Rush in Rancho Cucamonga and pre-emptively purchased it. Luckily for me, I ended up attending an EPPS (Entertainment Publicists Professional Society) panel the following week and had the perfect excuse to give it a whirl!

I love this dress. At first glance, my mom said it was too”old-looking”. But I tried it on anyway, and I’m glad I did. While the print is a little “old” and 70s-inspired, the cut definitely isn’t! I love the long sleeves with the button cuffs. They make my arms look skinny, and are super-professional. The way the dress nips in at the waist is also a plus, as it shows my figure without being revealing whatsoever. The length is conservative and the buttons go high up, so no cleavage is shown. It also has a built-in slip, so no worrying about if the dress is too sheer or not!

This dress makes me feel conservative yet young, polished yet carefree. It’s perfect for work events and meetings, and I would even wear it to happy hour with friends! I accessorized it with white ballet flats from H&M and my classic Tiffany’s heart necklace.

What do you wear to work-related events? Let me know in the comments!
