If I had my way, everyday would be Halloween and we would all get to dress up anyway we wanted. Alas, we’re in the professional world so going to work or showing up to your favorite restaurant in a full Wizard of Oz get-up would turn heads, but in the worst way possible. The beauty of being a woman is being able to play various roles with your outfits. We have a lot more versatility in what we wear than men, who usually have less than ten pairs of shoes to their name at any given time.
My Monday Muse this week is Dorothy Gale from Wizard of Oz, who was the envy of all the girls in her neighborhood in her ruby red pumps (I like to think the movie omitted that part when she found her way back home). Aside from not finding her way home, Dorothy managed to look put together as she went on her quest for the Wizard that would tell her how to get back to Kansas. Along the way, she had a lot of adventures in her ruby red pumps and gingham dress. Looking like Dorothy in August is a cinch thanks to an updated version of the gingham dress from Modcloth.
I know what you’re probably wondering, “How can this be appropriate for work?” Investing in a nice summer cardigan or a cozy from DKNY is a must. In the summer time, creme and white cardigans in light cashmere are a definite do and will cover up your shoulders when in the office. Happy Halloween in August ladies.
