    I love the dress from the front, but I'm not so sure about the back being cut the same. I pretty much prefer my back to be covered – that way I'm less likely to have to wear a cardigan over it to work.

    This dress is not appropriate for work.

    I've never heard of this site before, but their stuff is cute and cheap (almost suspiciously cheap). Has anyone ordered from them before?

    Re: Lulu's quality:

    I have a pair of shoes from Lulu's (Soda ballet flats). Thy were really cheap (definitely under $15, maybe under $10), and made of synthetic materials. They were OK. I only wear them occasionally, but they have held up fine. As far as comfort, they are not Cole Haans with Nike Air, and little-to-no arch support, but comparable to shoes from Target or Payless. I wouldn't wear them if I had to walk long distances.

    My friend has ordered clothes before. I would say the quality is comparable to Forever 21. So you probably don't want your entire work wardrobe to come from Lulu's, but for a piece or two (especially trendy items), it might be fun.

    Not to make you scream, but even with the back, wearing that dress to work would make me more dressed up than 90% of the people I work with – I'm just not comfortable with the back (even if I'm not at work, actually). But I really do love it from the front and might need to either look for something similar or make something similar.

    I don't think Belle is saying it isn't 'dressy' enough, it's that it is not WORK appropriate. 🙂

    No – I get that. But people at my work show up in capris this time of year, as well as maxi dresses with cardigans. So I can see where it wouldn't be work appropriate in many more traditional offices, and I personally wouldn't wear it to work, but I could.

    What makes the dress inappropriate for work is the DEEP keyhole neckline. Not acceptable. I don't care if you wear a burqa over it, not acceptable for work.
