Work Ready: Polka Dotty

by Jamila Pierre

So, I'm sure I'm not the only blogger out there who has a boat load of photos and/or outfit posts that never make it to the actual blog. Whether it's because you had a heavy hand in editing, the angle was all wrong, you made the stupidest face imaginable, or the outfit was just not at all what you envisioned. though I like certain elements of both, in my opinion, they both fall short of glory.

Never intended to post these looks on my blog, just didn't feel like it. But someone in my life told me that I here it is.

I have a true affinity for work-wear, as you should know by now,  so naturally that's the silhouette I showcase most often.

The outfit to the left was the outfit I was going to post for the astrology sign Caner, didn't exactly feel right for the sign so I nixed that idea, the one on the right was an outfit incorporating a top that I purchased one size too big and had no idea how to wear it until almost a year later.

If I had to choose which polka dotty look I liked best, I'd pick the one on the right. it's interesting to see how vastly different I look from image to image with just a few key changes in hair style and accessories..

It's like Good Jamila vs. Bad Jamila.

In any event, here are the two looks, don't hesitate to give your opinion on them. Adios amigos.
