But possibly not in a good way.

Depends on the function you're planning to wear it to. masquerade type ball Company Holiday party, not so much a good look unless it's the entertainment industry.

Not really my style, but if you like it that is all that matters.

I guess my other concern would be is it appropriate for the event? What do people typically wear? What did you wear last year? I know some company holiday parties can be pretty formal/black tie?

I agree ^^. You certainly don't need any approval from message board posters about what to wear! LOL!

And that said, I LOVE the dress (lace over nude and mermaid hem), and wouldn't hesitate to wear it myself!

I think it is too sexy and suggestive for a company ball - the problem is the lace design that begins at the naval and goes straight to the crotch area, as well as the sheer lace with the nude liner. It borders on vulgar. The shape is nice, but I would look for a more tasteful dress for a work function. You don't want people to notice you for the wrong reason.

It looks like an antique tablecloth my Grandmother had.
Not a fan of those type of dresses, in my opinion they do not look elegant.

Pretty dress. I always go by how a garment looks on me from the side. If you like how it looks on you, wear it. Not sure why anyone thinks it will get so much attention.
