    LOVE that these have sleeves! Am always on the hunt for work dresses that aren't sleeveless.

    Can you please advise on this Asos dress or any of the Asos clothes you have featured on your site? I have heard conflicting reviews online but would like to get your opinion of Asos? Have you ever purchased from them and if so what do you think of them?

    Thanks and love your site!

    I've been eying a very similar red Calvin Klein sheath that's been popping up at Nordstrom Rack, etc, but I've been worried that it's too bold for my heavily-male defense-industry office. What are your thoughts Belle? If you're every looking for a topic, I'd love to hear your thoughts in general on color trends and varying workplaces.
