If it's at his boss's house then it's "work related"! Don't think that his boss will just disregard something because it's at his own house.

If you care about your boyfriend you'll dress a bit more conservatively at the party and then show your skin once you get home. Exactly what are you trying to prove and to whom, anyway?

This. You need to not be thinking about your clothing when you meet your guy’s co-workers. Find a dress that looks amazing on you, but is not revealing, and focus on meeting people and enjoying yourself. There will be other times to wear the sexy dress.

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?
You still didn’t read it.....it’s not Bf’s “work friends”.... it’s his boss who is a personal friend of his & his boss is having a party for personal friends.....my Bf is part of it but it’s not for everyone at his work.....

If it was his coworkers....I wouldn’t.....

Bf has already told me....like in my O.P. that he has seen other women in the same kinds of dresses at these parties.....I’m not doing it to stand out....I want to fit in. I don’t want to be overdressed or under........

Girl, I quoted you. In your first post, you're the one who said "work friends." LOL

This IS silly. Again, it is about your need to be admired, or else there would be NO question about what to do.

I agree that you need to ask yourself what you're trying to prove, and to whom. Anyone with half a brain would read the replies and know the general consensus.

Work friends = his boss & another guy who will be there that are his personal friends.....NOT COWORKERS.......it’s got nothing to do with their work....


I’m trying to look good for my Bf & fit in......with the other women.....

Do you think other women admire “a little bit of skin”? You’re trying to fit in with other women? Riiiiight. Know you’re trying to get high-fives all around from the guys to your boyfriend. Let’s not be coy.

From what you've posted here, you're very fashion conscious. It's not like you won't look good. So really the decision about how much skin to show reads like you're trying to decide at what level of arm candy/trophy GF you want to operate.

I mean, when I'm attending a party at someone's home, I don't dress like I'm going to the club. Use your best judgement about the appropriateness of the clothing based on the event, because theoretically any clothes you buy will already be an expression of who you are.

Other men have wives or girlfriends that can dress the same way.......I’m not the only one & I am not trying to stand out.......
