My friend (and co-worker) came with me to the H&M Metropolis Opening Event a couple weeks ago and we both tried on this houndstooth dress. And as luck would have it, it looked great on both of us and we both wanted to buy it.
Typically I wouldn't really condone buying the same bold dress as your friend, but, after some discussion, we learned that we both had totally different visions of how the dress could be worn. And so, the idea of 'Who Wore it Best (at Work)' was born.
I went for more of a mod, 60s inspired look.
Meanwhile, she went for more of a 'ladies who lunch' look, a la Charlotte York - gloves included.
In the end, our co-workers couldn't decide whose look they liked more - my shoes and hat were a hit, but everyone liked her addition of the belt.
