Reality In Style

Reality In Style dress, Steve Madden booties, DIY clear clutch, H&M bangle, Forever 21, Banana Republic, and Shari Wacks necklaces





As I mentioned here, cute/functional/appropriate work clothes are hard to come by.  I'm constantly looking for great work dresses, only to find they're either uncomfortable or inappropriate for the office.  Enter Reality In Style.  They offer high quality work clothes that fit the bill and can easily transition to after office dinner or drinks. When they offered to send me this dress, I was excited to try it out. After putting it on, I fell in love with the soft, stretchy fabric that was equally comfortable as it was flattering.  The style was the perfect for work, but transitioned easily to dinner date with Gabe afterward (I wore it with pumps and a shoulder bag for work and switched to the booties, clutch, and some extra gold necklaces for dinner). Reality In Style is graciously offering Red Vines For Breakfast readers a 20% discount with code "RedReality" (expires 12/31/2010).  Check out their site here.

I'm always looking for dresses that can go from work to night. I don't know what's going on with designers but a lot of the stuff is super slutty for the office! This looks great. I'll have to check it out!

And how exciting you're coming to Chicago this weekend! I'll email you about coffee!

That dress is definitely a perfect work staple! I have a similar black wrap dress that I wore last Friday to work with boots.

I just did a post on how hard it is to find work appropriate stylish clothes! This dress definitely makes the grade though. Thanks for sharing!
