As I mentioned in my previous post Shopping Day, I recently picked up a lovely gray shift dress. As I write about this, please bear with me, as I may accidentally forget which way I spell grey. Sometimes it's grey and sometimes it's gray. I can never remember which I prefer. Do feel free to call me out on it if I spell it greye or grae though.
While I did go through my punk phase and my goth phase (they somewhat overlapped) and my regular girl phase, right now I seem to be collecting office wear. There's something I just love about office wear like shift dresses and pencil skirts. It's sexy but serious and not at all slutty. Maybe it's sexy because it represents competence and projects power. Either way I'm a happy girl.
The new dress I got is one that I've been searching for for a while now. I really wanted a gray shift with fine woven fabric, nice and form fitting and professional. Kind of like the one Kristen Wiig wore in that one scene in The Martian, you know that one where Donald Glover has to explain gravity assist to the head of NASA for some reason. Because the head of NASA has never heard of the particular maneuver that NASA uses for every single planetary probe they ever sent out. I guess I'll forgive them since for the movie they had to explain it to the audience. The book was better. Also Kristen Wiig is a national treasure. I love her.
