So today I FINALLY got my ASOS order in the mail!! So happy. I grabbed that package and ran up stairs to try on my two purchases and I’m happy to say they fit!!! YAY. I was worried because of the slight weight gain, I’ve been kind of pissed at myself. Need to get serious… but food… good. FML.
So anyways, at first I was disappointed that the dress I purchased was a little too big on me. Not by much, but enough to look like a sack. *Sigh* Luckily I still own a belt that fits my waist, so it was an easy fix. I did however have trouble choosing what I wanted to wear it with. By itself, with a kimono, or with a chunky sweater. So I did all of them :-P.
Look one: Night time.
I styled the dress with a belt, a pair of black tights and a pair of black booties. Wearing my hair plain. I opted for “feather” earrings, that are actually made out of metal, and a locket. With nothing over top of this dress- I feel like it’s too dressed up for every day outings. But for a club? I would totally wear this out to the bar. This is the base look for the following photos.
Belt: Taken off a skirt.
Boots: Steve Madden New York- Sears, old.
Locket: Flee Market
Earrings: Sears similar here
Look 2: The summer/spring look.
Can you tell this one is my favorite? I love how this kimono looks over the dress. It makes it feel more casual, like an every day summer look. Even with no tights and a pair of sandals this would look cool and laid back. I also like this as an option for when I want to wear bra straps with this dress. This wouldn’t work for me without the belt, the dress would be too shapeless, and baggy. Putting the kimono over top would look frumpy.
Kimono: Rue 21. Similar here.
Look 3: Fall/Winter
Once again, same base look, one difference. This is my look for tonight, with the weather chilly, this sweater really added the cozy- casual touch to the dress. I loved how the pink looked against the gray and how chill it felt. Plus the extra belt on the sweater helped to pull the whole look together… no pun intended.
Sweater: Laura Scott, Sears. Similar here.
Lips: L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Nude Ballet.
