I bought this button-front white dress from Raoul a couple of weeks ago from their sale. It was a steal at $80! There were only 2 colours available – black or white. I’ve got so many black dresses in various styles so I decided that I’d buy the white one. It did cross my mind that I’d be told that I’m a nurse but decided that I’d dress it up with accessories. You can’t tell from the picture above but there’s actually a slit at the shoulders. I also like the 2 large pockets and the collar shape. The dress actually came with a matching white belt in the same material! Now, that would really make me look like a nurse…
I wore it to work last week and maaaaan, the nurse jokes started the moment I arrived at work and continued throughout the day. It went from “Nurse! I got fever leh. How?!” to “You’re missing a red cross on your dress”. Some pretend to faint in front of me and asked for medical help. One even commented that I look like the beauticians at Clinique.
It was funny at first but this continued throughout the day and it got a little tiresome. A friend suggested that I carry a syringe around and threaten to jab the next person who makes another nurse joke. Heh.
So tell me, all you fashionistas out there. What else can you do to make it not look like a nurse? As you can see from the photo above, I wear a lanyard at work so I didn’t want to put on any statement necklaces – I’d end up hitting each other whenever I walk about (which is alot!)
