This dress for work - too much?

Looks fine to me. I love FWM. The clothes are actually cut for women...

Amazingly, all of his clothes that I've tried on have been like that. I'm also a size smaller in them than anywhere else grin

Sounds fine - apart from the black ankle boots (imo)

I love it !!!!
and am about to order it for myself - you have made me spend this.

It looks like it would work, yes. I would wear long boots with it though, and maybe add some colour somewhere.

Agreed MollyMole I am about to do the same - DH will go mental!

I would absolutely wear this for work. Don't think you need to black it down quite so much either. In fact, with all black it might stand out more IYSWIM; I'd go for a jacket/blazer in a neutral (or, if your work isn't so formal, a chunky cardigan.)

I'd probably avoid black and grey with it altogether, but that's just me – I like clashing interesting contrasts of colours. It's quite monochrome as it is, so I reckon it could do with some warming up. I think brown/neutral boots would look the business with it, and a neutral chunky knit, something a bit like this – not so much for the style, but the colour. Or this?

In fact, if it were me, I'd go neutral cardigan and then shoes/boots in blue. Like these.

I think it's borderline too sexy and sassy for work. In the end, it is a form-fitting animal print dress - lovely but not quite work-appropriate unless you work in an "alternative" office.

Gorgeous, would definitely go for it.

Teal suede boots sound A-MA-ZING (sorry, my inner Craig Revel Horwood just escaped a bit). I adore suede. In fact I may have to go and buy some suede shoes now ...
