Come Fab Finding With Me: Dinner with Your Mate's Boss

Come Fab Finding With Me: Dinner with Your Mate's Boss

Going out to dinner with your significant other's boss is a tricky proposition. You want to look chic and professional but also like you have some personality. After all, it's your mate who has the business relationship with the boss, not you. I recommend choosing tailored pieces that are evening-appropriate and just a little bit adventurous, like this Twinkle by Wenlan Twisted Balloon Skirt, available for $348 here.

So let's all go Fab Finding to complete the outfit, with a sweater or dressy top, shoes, and a handbag. Try to be creative but not too flashy; after all, we don't want the boss to think your significant other doesn't need a raise! Be sure to come back and tell us that your Fab Finds are up, or just tag your Fab Finds with the phrase "Boss Dinner." To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here. To see some of my favorite online stores,
