Naturally Fashionable- Pink H&M Blazer

via Closet Confections

{H&M Blazer (similar), Forever 21 Skirt, Top & Sunglasses, Miu Miu Shoes (similar), Bulova Watch, Vintage & Henri Bendel Bracelets}

I was organizing my sock drawer (for fun… on a Saturday… ‘cuz I’m weird like that), when I unearthed these fishnet stockings. This particular pair is double-layered, so there’s a solid sheer base with a fishnet overlay. I love how they give the look of a bare leg, but with a bit more coverage and a dash of retro-sexy. Now if only I could find a pair with a backseam, we’d be in business!

Since my hosiery had me feeling all ladylike, I decided to go full-on girly with a pink blazer and pink patent-leather maryjanes. And presto! ladies and gentlemen, the perfect spring outfit… in January

I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy... everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.

Fashionable AND professional - a first for this segment. I feel like this could work in the boardroom or in the courtroom. The fishnets give it an edge without taking it over the top.
Loves it!!

Very nice corporate look! Can't wait until I get that "big girl" job so I can rock a fly/professional look when I arrive at the office. lol

I absolutely LOVE that outfit! This is totally me! I like the fashions that are grown up, practical and don't make me look like someone dipped me in glue and rolled me around in a flea market.

@Discovery I got the shoes on sale right before Christmas at a Miu Miu store in Manhattan. I found them online too at MyTheresa.com, but it looks like they're sold out now. :-(

@Sparkle Arts I can't remember exactly, but here's a similar pair at Urban Outfitters: http://urbout.co/yJ5LFo

I'm not really a fan of loose skirts but it looks really nice on her, and her hair looks gorge !

Am I the only one who thinks the skirt is a little too short?

I don't think it's too short...just like when you were in primary and secondary school, for a lot of office environments (I won't say all), anything that's no higher than 6 inches above the knee is acceptable.

LOVE IT! Very classy w/o a lot of cheap looking jewelry mucking up the look!! Like my skirt lengths to hit at the knee better look and I don't have fat knees.

Discovery said...

@ClosetConfections: Thanks so much for responding. Sucks that they're sold out, but a girl can dream.
