The Perfect Work Dress (and one that takes you from day to night)

// Style


Looking for the perfect work dress? Great cut, great price, great colour. One you can easily wear out to drinks or to a meeting?


Look no further. Welcome to the perfect work dress.

I love the freedom that comes with being able to wear whatever you like for work. One of the perks of entrepreneurship! 

When I left my job in advertising in my late 20’s, I let go of my wardrobe of LK Bennett kitten heels and suits, and revelled in jeans for a while.

Then I went the other end of the spectrum – and I was living in trousers and jeans as a photographer.

When I became a coach and started working from home more, it was exciting to be able to dress up, and dress colourfully & beautifully for work each day. The heels came back out & so did the dresses.

One of the reasons I dress up for work every day (yes, even when working from home, and not even when I am going on video….my neighbours will vouch for this!)…. is because of how it makes me feel.


After meditation, there’s nothing like a good dress to elevate my mood, and a pop of gorgeous colour to lift the spirit. When I am all dressed up, hair and make up done, I am ready for anything!

When you feel ready for anything, all sorts of good things can come your way.

I love this Vestry dress for it’s gorgeous jewel colour, great cut, and little ruffles on the shoulders that make it a little bit more special.

It’s smart enough for day, for client meetings, calls and feeling business like, but add a pair of glamorous earrings and it’s a cocktail dress perfect for dinner.



I LOVE the ruffles and the sheer back makes it even more feminine.
