Old Navy employee works a shift in her prom dress so she doesn’t have to change

“When prom is at 8 but you have to work until 7:30.”

Those were the triumphant words of one Old Navy employee on Twitter, who reportedly got all dressed up for her boyfriend’s prom and kept the sparkly halter dress on for her entire shift so she wouldn’t have to change.

Sales associate Alicia Davis, 20, posted photos at a register, folding clothes and with her boyfriend Chris, showing us that maybe— just maybe— workplace fashion has room to get pretty fancy.

Working hard to play hard

Davis tweeted the images of herself getting the job done in her dress, complete with a classic prom pose.


Davis told Daily Mail Online about her coworkers’ reactions.

“My coworkers thought it was funny…I’m outgoing at Old Navy, so it didn’t surprise them that I would do something like this!” she told the publication.

The couple’s beaming smiles prove that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with making work work for you— even if you have to have to show up in a floor-length evening gown.
