Work Wear ~ Faux Silk Vintage Dress

Thursday, June 14, 2012

I have come to realise you guys seem to like the work wear segments I have going on so I have made up my mind to take a picture before I leave for work in the mornings. I'm usually in such a rush that it is the last thing on my mind but luckily this morning I managed to get a few snaps in!
So this dress was an online purchase and I bought it believing it was silk. When it came I was so excited as it is long sleeved and below the knee. As soon as I felt the fabric I knew it was not silk but a polyester fabric. Needless to say I messaged the seller and all she managed to reply was 'oh sorry I thought it was silk'.. FAIL! I was completely peeved off but alhumdulillah looked onto the bright side and decided to hang it in my work wear closet. I wore it today and felt so comfortable! Loved it and believe it will become a regular work outfit. It also looks nice over a black pencil skirt so that is another combination I will try out in summer inshallah.
