Movie Star Shoes

Do you ever forget about a part of your company's dress code until you're already at work breaking it? No?  No, of course not, not my followers.  You are all too smart to pull such a silly move (like taking pictures during a crazy lightening storm, perhaps?).  Today I arrived to work in some peep toe heels just in time to remember that you can't wear open toed shoes anymore.  I spent the majority of the morning hiding my toes behind desks and chairs, only to have clients loudly proclaiming their love for my shoes.  One woman yelled (from the other end of the loooong hallway, mind you) "Hey girl, love those shoes!  Those are movie star shoes!"  Thanks for the compliment, but I'm trying to be stealth here lady...
Top: F21

Shoes: Bumper

So, what about you?  Do you ever break company dress code policy?

Im super lucky to work at a place that has no dress code. Im wearing cut off shorts and a white tee with some sequin sneakers right now and it's no big deal. I wonder what will happen to me if I move to a place with a dress code...
You look gorgeous, even if you are a rule breaker :)

I don't have a dress code at work, but if I did, I would so break the dress code. Or try and push it as far as I could :) I'm kinda daring like that!

You look fabulous! LOVE your skirt. And those shoes are worth breaking your dress code for.

LOL I think some of those policies are funny. The no exposed toes might have been to keep your foot covered - which they certainly are here. I say this is a worthwhile rule breaker! - Katy

Those seriously are movie star shoes! I'm really lucky that tv/film is generally a pretty laid back industry - we don't tend to have to deal with a dress code!

Even for a law office, we're pretty laid back 'round these parts. LOL at the story about the woman! I would've yelled it at you too, though, in her defense.

You rebel you! Those shoes seriously are adorable though. I've worked at places before where no open-toed shoes were allowed, other than that nothing too strict.

Those are some pretty awesome kicks! I would wear them all the time, despite company policy! ok, maybe not all the time. hahah.

Wow, those shoes are just fabulous! The rebel in me would totally want to break the rules just to wear them! I think your job needs to reconsider the dress code, the closed-toe shoe rule is so outdated!

I always break our dress code. I'm a rebel what can I say. I've never been one to follow rules very well.

Ugh, I have the same policy at my work. As much as I'd like to break it, it's for our safety since we move a lot of stuff around. But those are some really cool shoes!

Perfect styling. Head-to-toe.

I agree! Those are movie star shoes! Our dress code at work is very relaxed. I always make sure dresses/skirts come down past my finger tips. And I have to be careful with shoes. Sometimes I go into the plant so I don't wear any shoes that I am not comfortable in. I don't want to topple over because I wore wobbly heels.

LOVE the shoes and I've ABSOLUTELY broken several company dress code rules in the past before I became self-employed...after all...they're just 'guidelines'...lol

I agree with that lady those shoes are awesome! As different as it is from my old job where business casual was a loose guideline my new job is pretty open too so I would really have to be dressed unprofessionally to break it and I'd rather not...
