Fashion Review: Corporate Lookbook
Once again, raising the style bar with Corporate Lookbook.
Hey my stylish femmes!
How are you doing on this Halloween weekend?
Well, I had a blast playing Halloween dress up at a friend’s Halloween Housewarming party…
… and a hell of a time “confronting my fears” at Halloween attraction – FrightFest@Singapore Flyer.
I hope you had fun too!
Shoving Halloween aside, how are you doing on your fashion resume lately?
I’ve been updating my wardrobe with lots of classy business casual apparels since I’m in the office almost 50 hours a week.
You see, I strongly believe that a Honeyz girl should know how to look elegant and stylish even while dealing with onerous demands at the office.
Well, the perennial question is – where do we go to buy affordable and fashionable office clothing?
The answer to that?
Miriam Pleated Dress (Peach)
I love the pleats and the striking color of this dress! It certainly makes one stand out from the world of black and white suits while keeping the silhouettes simple.
I’m especially impressed with the quality of this dress. The material felt thick and stiff, but not to worry, it does not feel comfortable at all.
Actually, it feels like I’m wearing paper because it crumples like one when I sit down. It does not wrinkle because of that though so ten thumbs up to that!
Who says we can’t be conservative and stylish at the same time? The 32″ length and the high neckline is ideal for the workplace. I don’t think anyone wants to see their male colleagues gaping at their over-exposed bust or legs at the workplace.
The workmanship is pretty exquisite too. Seriously, I can easily give this 5 Honeyz crowns for its over the top quality and design.
Genet Ruffled Dress (Mustard)
This is an absolute fuss-free modish dress that is great for after-work parties too. (A hot favorite for lazy bones like me.)
The design and cutting is perfect for my frame and the lustrous ruffles hides the less-endowed figure well.
However, the elastic band at the waist is slightly tight for me so I think it may not be too comfortable to wear for UK8 and up.
Material and workmanship is of top notch quality. The chiffon is accompanied with inner lining so it is not sheer at all.
Besides the workplace, it is also great for frolicking on the beach! (Pretty evident from the photos.)
4.5 Honeyz crowns!
Taryn Flower Printed Dress
Pump up your office style quotient with floral prints!
Tack on a blazer in the morning for a serious look and embellish it with accessories and belts for the cocktails after work!
The material and workmanship is pretty decent. Here’s the downer. The inner lining is pretty short. It’s a hassle because the outer fabric is extremely sheer.
The neckline is also pretty low and sides are wide, so a tube top is recommended.
All in all, I think this is a great lazy dress that exudes the right amount of femininity and style.
4 Honeyz crowns!
Thanks belles for reading.
Till next time!
Your friend, Juliana
Disclaimer: I know I’m going to sound like a broken record but I would like to emphasize again that Honeyz fashion reviews are NOT advertorial posts. I do not endorse any of those brands featured. Rather, I’m trying to show you how normal girls (girls with non-supermodel statures) look like in clothing from these famous boutiques. This is to aid you in making informed purchase decisions when it comes to updating your fashion wardrobe. 🙂
