Would need to see it in the flesh so to speak. Does it not reveal a lot of norkage?

DrNortherner Tue 21-Oct-08 14:18:10

Not for my office no. It's gross. imo.

It is rather sheer isn't it? Would you feel comfortable with that much revealed?

Personally I think it is a bit Maggie Gyllenhall in Secretary.

llareggub Tue 21-Oct-08 14:18:55

That's a no from me, by the way.

MorticiaAnnSpookington Tue 21-Oct-08 14:20:07

urgh !

um...i like it, but it would really depend on what sort of office you work in...

ie big city corporate stylish office - ok.

smalltown stix office - nah.

No not for the office. tbh if I saw someone in the office wearing that I would think "airhead"

ruddynorah Tue 21-Oct-08 14:23:34

CatIsSleepy Tue 21-Oct-08 14:24:13

Oh dear - no. If it was less see-through and less tight, then maybe.

beeny Tue 21-Oct-08 14:57:06

do you work in a brothel?


jumpingbeans Tue 21-Oct-08 15:01:34

Well, if you were a receptionist at an escort agengy it would be just fine, complete with red shoes

ruddynoraaaaaaggggggghhhhh Tue 21-Oct-08 15:01:48

red shoes?!

i'm afraid it looks like something from a music video where britney or whoever is dressed as a norty secretary. even maggie wouldn't have worn this.

flowerybeanbag Tue 21-Oct-08 15:03:02

What everyone else said. No. No no no no no.

If you like the overall look, try a nice black pencil skirt and a nice cream or white blouse, without slits/see through bits/v low necklines.

i find it slightly odd that they sell it in a size 16 hmm

no-one over a size 10 could pull that off.
