The Charlotte Olympia pumps from Alexis Bledel’s winning look at ELLE’s Fashion Next Runway Show last September are sold out everywhere, but her combo dress just became available. Check her out:

It’s this detailed two-tone flannel dress from Carven:
Carven Detailed Two-Tone Flannel Dress
Yes, it’s a dress and NOT a white blouse and grey skirt combo. It’s more obvious when viewed from the back as the exposed zipper starts at the nape and connects all the way down to the hip.
This dress is conservative enough for work, but pair it with the right accessories, and it’s downright sexy, as Alexis Bleldel has shown.
You can’t get any sexier than red satin pumps and a leopard print clutch, but I think this dress could also take on and stand to be worn with a pair of sky-high, thigh-high patent leather over-the-knee boots.
The look, described as “sexy secretary” or “the co-worker who’s secretly a dominatrix,” is risqué but can be achieved with an all-wrapped-up dress. How would you style a dress like this?
