Black Hole Bombshell

Inspired by, our resident Business Bombshell, MaryK, I tried out my bodycon Nicole Miller galaxy dress for work today. Hoping to get outdoor pics later, but I will add them if it happens. I like the effect of the long back of the blazer with this dress - really helps tone down the sexxay factor, and no one commented negatively at work. Also happy for another way to wear my burgundy Timberlands, which everyone mistakes for Fryes! Great look-for-less moment. :-)

Edit: Outdoor pic added! The dress colors came out much more clearly, but the burgundy boots have proven really hard to photograph. Added a snap of them from a past outfit.

    Beautiful. Love the slower long silhouette and the dark tones.

    Gorgeous! You debombshelled the dress but you still look like a bombshell. How do you do that?!
  • rae replied 5 years ago
    Sona, best answer ever, hehe. I am so using that!

    Ceit, you'd rock this look. For serious.

    Kelly, that is interesting! Maybe it's the buttoned-up blazer? The cut in front sort of forms an hourglass. Hrm, must think on this!

    Great combo. Overall classic look but with funkier items.

    Out of this world.  My son is doing his speech for school on black holes (grade 4).  Did you know that if a person gets sucked into a black hole, the process of extreme stretching that would occur is called "spaghettification"?  Learn something new every day!

    Rich, sleek and probably quite comfortable.  That a winning outfit, in my book.

    Ah yes, burgundy and purple are so hard to photograph!
    I like this UWP take on a bombshell. You do have a change in your style direction and I LOVE it!
    Longer blazer does make bodycon dress more wearable at work

    Love it, you UWP bombshell! You just radiate confidence!

    I so wish I had something with a galaxy print.

    Love this on you. Polished UWP! Body con and work appropriate, you got it just right.

    This is a great look for you, Rae!

    Perfectly appropriate! I love that galaxy print dress. And the color of those boots is amazing.

    That Gibson blazer goes with almost everything, doesn't it? One of my best workhorse purchase of the last couple of years.
