I know that it’s completely acceptable to wear sleeveless dresses to work during the winter months, but my pale skin doesn’t agree. I don’t like being reminded that I resemble Casper’s sister. And since I have a ton of sleeveless sheath dresses I decided to get creative and layer this one over a long sleeve lace bodysuit. Initially, I was planning on layering it over a turtleneck, but this is a relatively sexy dress and sometimes a girl doesn’t like feeling so buttoned up. The black lace adds an element of feminity and sex appeal making it an outfit that transitions seamlessly from work to play. And considering it is the season for tights, I finally had to invest in a reliable pair. I don’t know what it is with me and tights; we just don’t mesh (no pun intended). I always end up getting a snag, run and/or pull and it results in so much frustration that I just decide to pack up my dresses and wait for the spring. However, after receiving a pair L’eggs black sheer energy tights, I can finally say I no longer harbor those frustrations. As a young girl, I’d always purchase solid white or pink tights for my ballet and jazz classes and they carried me through some of the most memorable recitals. Unfortunately, over the years, I forgot about L’eggs. I guess the flashy designer names caught hold of my wallet, but now, I can honestly say I will never go back. Every dress I’ve worn this season I’ve paired my sheer energy L’eggs tights with them and I have yet to have a run, snag OR pull! I’m not kidding. If you’re like me, and the idea of putting on tights deters you from donning your favorite winter dresses just invest in ONE pair of L’eggs tights and you’ll be all set. I’m serious. Let the dress wearing begin ladies!
