Risqué Business

On Your Toes Blog: Risqué Business

Ris`que´ (rės`kã´)
a. masc.
   Hazardous; risky; esp., fig., verging upon impropriety; dangerously close to,
or suggestive of, what is indecent or of doubtful morality; as, a risqué story.

A bare shoulder, a hint of stocking, a dangerously deep open neckline, not the most daring of fashion statements unless they make an appearance at one of the places you wouldn't expect to see them, the workplace. I decided to play 'take your avy to work' day and file a report on some looks that border on the risqué, making Monday mornings at the office something to look forward to.
Inspired by the Nyu Debut Peplum skirt, I put together a proper look complete with stockings and stylish but practical heels, Pow Pumps from LeLutka, and then added the unexpected Cowl Bodysuit by Epoque. The Pantone Satchel, the perfect size to hold important papers, also from Epoque and the flowery Vera accessories from Donna Flora, add polish to this monochromatic outfit. Hair tossed up in a tidy knot complete with loose pieces the frame the face and  back of the neck add the final dimension to this 'mix business with pleasure' makeover.

Finding a way to make covered up professional wear sexy is a snap with this ISON Shift Blazer Dress, it has beautiful clean edges and nice details like the double rows of buttons and flat pocket flaps. A feminine silk blouse like this classic one from Shai, gives the impression of softly billowing sleeves and a bow tied neckline. I carried the tone of the blouse into the over the knee Jazz boots from Maitreya, in nude, and then filled in the space between with a tease of thigh high lace topped stockings from Blowpop, still one of the sexiest collections of well made hosiery you can find.

Next I went for the more obvious approach, a sexy suit, this one from Paper Couture Fall 2008, is an effective argument for well made non-mesh clothing, the hand painted subtle pattern in the rich grape color, even the use of a system skirt for shape, sans shirt, becomes daring. By adding the corset style Traveler Belt by Ingenue, and some soft suede boots the look is elevated. Flashes of gold jewelry, like the Aviary Claw Bracelet from ISON, and an 'Entangled' collection of pieces from talented (and fellow OYT Blogger) Caelyn Hancroft, her line of Cae accessories will be available soon, complete this outfit.

I'd love to stay and tell you more about my office antics, but I have an important meeting (see shopping trip) to get to. See you around the water cooler!
