Paralegal Career Dressing: Valentine’s Day Backfire

Dear Hubby, who didn’t see me until after work, greeted me with, “Hey, I like the sexy Barbara Bush look.”

Oh. Not what I was going for.

Jacket (Anthropologie clearance); Maggy L dress (Steinmart uber Red Dot clearance); Pearls (Banana Republic Mad Men Collection); Aigner T-straps (Ross Dress for Less); Tights (We Love Colors)

I immediately whipped off the jacket (one of only two Anthropologie articles I own), and informed Dear Hubby that this was my Va-Voom Valentine’s dress, just for him, and maybe my office mate, Bucky, who just rolled his eyes.

I like dresses. It’s like pulling a nightgown over your head and scooting out de house.
Our office supply vendor sent everyone a box o’ chawcolates. Bucky was not as impressed as I am.
Right. I’m thinking about not sharing, Bucky.
Chopped off my own head again, but not the important part, the red legs and shoes.

In case you were wondering, I was going for the Mad Men look with the dress and pearls, not sexy Barbara Bush.

Ever had an outfit backfire on ya?
