wrong.

boss's house.
Yep, just because it's not an officially sanctioned 'work event' those people are still coworkers and employer. You really think it's going to be a case of 'what happens in vegas stays in vegas'?

You need to balance your need to be admired with the need to make a reasonable and not overly memorable impression with your BF's coworkers.

You know very well that certain clothes are appropriate for certain events and venues. And some are not.

Don’t wear anything revealing to the boss’s house. You will make a bad impression. If you show a lot of skin, people will just think you’re trashy.

Better to be conservatively dressed when you meet your bf’s co-workers.

Yes, you need to read what YOU wrote. “Work friends” are different from coworkers?

So you aren’t really torn?? I can see how this thread is going to go ...yet again.

The only way to do that is to be revealing?

I definitely want to be myself too....but it’s the first time I am meeting his work friends.........so I’m torn....
Don't do it. What is the upside?

Mom didn't mean it in a negative way (the words make far more sense when taken with her smile and tone of voice when she said it).

It was her gentle way to tell a teenaged girl with a budding fashion sense and sexuality that it wasn't necessary for a lady to show all that she possessed to be perceived as being beautiful and sexy; to choose one feature and to highlight it while leaving something to the imagination. She taught me that suggestion and a hint of sexiness is always more alluring than revealing all that you possess as a woman. That last bit of advice will never do a woman wrong no matter what her age and it has served me well over the years and in many different settings.

In your case and given my own past experiences with such work-but-not-really-work events (that is, work disguised as a party) , I'd choose a body skimming (not tight!) outfit or dress that displays one feature that you consider to be sexy and makes you feel lovely and wear that to this event.

Wearing something sexy, youthful, and appropriate to the venue while appearing as an asset to your boyfriend and being comfortable with yourself and your appearance at this party should be the way to go.

Have fun!

The clothes aren't sexy. You are. And the point of clothes is to keep that under wraps.
