It's funny: since I really got interested in fashion, I don't seem to appreciate dresses as much. It doesn't feel like as much of an "outfit" to me because I didn't have to put it together. As you might have noticed, I LOVE to layer and very seldomly do I just let a dress be a dress. But sometimes, when a dress is so well executed that it needs no extra help, that is what you have to do!
About my outfit: This is a recent purchase from the shop and I almost didn't try it on because it is labeled a size 6...just goes to show: never confine yourself to just one numerical size - different brands/items fit differently and many times at thrift stores you will find items that were mis-sized. This on-trend colorblock dress is so stunning that I let it be the focus of the outfit by pairing it with the neutral heels and purse. I finished the look off with dramatic matching earrings and no other jewelry (except my everyday rings, of course).
Do you have any dresses you like to wear just as they are?
