Day to Night

Is there really the day to night item? I'm sure we all imagine the perfect selection that takes us from the office to that hot date! The whole point of the day to night outfit is to minimise taking a whole outfit to change into - yeah staff toilets anyone? To avoid pulling a mini suitcase behind you - effort, no what effort? And, finally not to alert your colleagues to your personal life unless you want to! A dress is the best day to night option as you can just take off the cardi and add some glam earrings and lipstick.

This Bette dress from Reiss, available in black online and a purple, which looks more like jet blue, in the stores, looks like a winner for the day to night category.

  4. I love the tone of this post, and the dress!

    There was a time this question might have been in front of me, and this dress would have been ideal.

  5. I'm intrigued by their Lydia dress. Very '80s.

  6. Ugh, the after-work do is such a nightmare. Who wants to cart a WHOLE other outfit to work and then cart the daytime outfit in a huge bag out with them? Not me. I'm rubbish at dressing up for after work. If I have to I take a dressy top and some heels. And some smoky eyeshadow if I'm really pushing the boat out.

  10. The dress is fab, and you're so right putting out that question.
    We must think of this.

  11. Oh gawd, how many times have I struggled to get changed in a stinky end-of-day toilet stall at work? Urk. Worst of all is end of day hair.

    BUT - this dress is fab, love the frill detail at the front. And perfect for that perennial day-to-night issue. xx
