Hale Bob Dress!

I got this super cute Hale Bob silk dress from Ruelala that I am so in love with!  I actually wasn't too sure if I'd end up liking it in person when I bought it.  But I got it to try anyway since it was only $54 and I am so happy I took the chance!  It comes with the cute belt too.  I got it in size small.





The outer silk layer of this dress is actually quite thin and sheer.  The inner slip has the same pattern as the outside though, which is why it doesn't look transparent:



The inner slip is actually attached to the outer layer by this loop thing on the top inside of the shoulder:


A closer up here that you can see the pattern on the inner slip actually somewhat shows through.  I like the double pattern effect.  It somehow makes it look more abstract.


Here's the close up of the belt - it's pretty big even on the closest hole.  I think it's meant to be a loose hanging belt though.



The sleeves are actually convertible lengths too.  So you could roll it up a little and then secure it with the button.  But I think because the sleeves are quite light and loose fitting, they don't stay rolled up very well.  I'm just not going to bother with this.



I'm actually not a huge animal print person.  But I love it when unexpected finds become one of your favorites!  This dress is super comfy and it's just the right length and style for pretty much any occasion.  I think I can even get away with wearing it to work, maybe with a jacket over, on a Friday in the summer time lol.  We'll see about that.  I like to dress a bit more professionally to work nowadays even though I see most women there just throw on whatever they want.  So this doesn't really fit the bill.  I think it's true what they say - dress for the job you want, not the job you have!  =P
