Last week, Andrea was out looking for new jeans when she came across a really cute, really simple dress. It had a nice, flattering scoop neck, an empire waist, and it was dark teal, AKA it was perfect for her. Oh, and it was also on sale for $10, so how the hell could she say no?
This morning, Andrea was feeling beyond exhausted. Her dogs had kept her up for a good portion of the night, and her hectic schedule had left her drained. She decided that one way to battle feeling so down in the dumps was to dress up a bit. She immediately thought of her new teal dress. It would definitely do the trick.
Being that teal is one of Andrea’s favourite colours, she was able to put together a stylishly matching ensemble, complete with a light teal bra and underwear set (even though no one would see it). Who does that, right? Andrea does.
What a gal.
Andrea was feeling sassy and confident in her outfit. She had been right: dressing up had made her feel a little more lively.
Then, at approximately 11:52am, Andrea went to the bathroom to, well, pee and wash her hands before lunch, if you really want to know. But as she went to leave the bathroom, something caught her eye.
What was that sparkle? Where was it coming from?
She lost it.
Hmm. Maybe it was nothing.
She moved again, and again a sparkle caught her eye.
Okay, seriously, she thought to herself, where is that coming from?
Then Andrea took a long, hard look at herself in the mirror.
That was when Andrea realized that the top half of her new teal dress was see-through. Not just a little. Almost entirely.
And the sparkle?
That was the charm* on her Victoria’s Secret bra, catching the light. Her dress was so see-through that the charm was plainly visible and capable of catching light.
Andrea did up the buttons of her cardigan and got on with her day, but from that point on, Andrea learned to ALWAYS CHECK TRANSPARENCY BEFORE WORK.
P.S. Still a totally cute dress. Just definitely not work appropriate.
*Why do they put those on there, anyway? I mean, I guess they’re sort of cute, but really.
