The Secret to Dressing Like a Boss Lady

The secret to dressing like a boss lady…is a fur vest! I put together this outfit without the intention of looking like a boss, but the moment I put on this vest, it was inevitable. This faux fur vest from Black Swan is so fabulous and adds an element of sophistication to any outfit, and is only $24.50! I felt like I was owning the world walking around in this outfit, and I definitely got looks from people, I assume of admiration 😉 I paired the vest with a plunging V-neck blouse from Tobi, and the two pieces look like they were made for each other. The V-neck is just the right amount of sexiness, and the vest provides enough coverage while letting the blouse peek through. I also love the high neck strap of the blouse, it adds an element of edginess and authority.

I choose burgundy tones for the rest of the outfit to dial-up the luxe factor. I paired a burgundy skirt with a leather detail with these gorgeous lace-up heels from Poetic Licence. I am seriously obsessed with these heels – I’ve been wanting a pair of lace-ups forever, and these so perfect in both the color and height. The heel is less than 3 inches, making it both comfortable and chic for walking. It’s also made from the softest material and has great cushion support, I was so surprised when I slipped my feet in!

I’m loving the bell sleeves of this blouse, one of my favorite trends for Fall. More bell sleeves are featured in this post.

For my accessories, every boss lady needs a Celine bag, so of course I used my precious burgundy Celine ring bag for this outfit. To complement the v-neck blouse, I chose a long delicate necklace from Gorjana, two pieces that also seem to be made for each other. I finished the look with gold rings to pair with the burgundy tones.

But asides from the fur vest, the real secret to dressing like a boss lady is confidence and feeling like a million bucks in what you’re wearing. It’s all about owning it, and if you think you look good, others will think the same!

    I had never heard of Black Swan before so I am happy to have a new splurge website. The prices are super reasonable. Oxblood/burgundy is such a great Fall color! That simple necklace makes a great impact.
