For those of you who don’t know me personally, let me tell you that I’ve never been a big fan of dresses or skirts. I much rather throw on a pair of jeans a tee and a pair of chunky heels and call it a day. But lately, dresses have become my go to garments.
They are a quick way of putting an outfit together without the worry of matching a top to a bottom, plus they instantly up your style factor!
On this particular day I was off to speaking engagement for my style agency and wanted to wear something nice without overdoing it.
I decided to add a little edge to the over all look by adding this leatherette jacket from XXI. I completed the look with some Betsey Johnson opaque tights and some black [hidden platform] pumps. I wish I could remember where I go the shoes from. I remember pulling them for a lookbook shoot I was styling for a local designer. I ended up purchasing them and keeping them for myself!
Stylist problems ;)
I appreciate the design of this dress more than words could ever express. My body has not quite returned to its pre-Neriah shape. And this dress has all the ruching in the right place. Patterns and ruching is Heaven-sent for those of us who are looking to create illusions ;)
I bought this cool bracelet/watch at a jewelry expo I attended a few months back, and I’m glad I did, it’s now one of my favorite accessories!
So tell me, do you have a favorite accessory?
Leave a comment below! I would like to know :)
Until next time!
