What to Wear in 3 Sticky Situations

I’ll be the first to admit dressing for important occasions can induce unnecessary panic. This is especially true when one doesn’t have a lifetime of experience or Rachel Zoe on the payroll. Maybe the last baby shower you attended was for your mom when she was expecting you. Regardless, once you’ve landed yourself a baby shower invitation or two, you don’t want to rely on a weekend wardrobe composed of cut-off shorts, tank tops and concert tees.  

Office holiday party? Your dress can’t be too tight. Nor too short.  But you also don’t want to look like you’re part of the Duggar family. So. Many. Rules. 

Don’t stress. I’ve asked Erika and Molly, owners of Whiskey and Lace, to make dressing for three sticky situations (1. a job interview, 2. a baby shower and 3. an office holiday party) as uncomplicated and un-sticky as possible. Here’s what they came up with:
