Playing Favourites

Dress: BCBG. Clutch: Balenciaga. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (Similar here). Belt: H&M. Ring: BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

It’s hard for me to pick favourite pieces from my wardrobe because I try to only buy items that I truly love and can’t live without.  However, if I was forced to rank my clothing, this dress would be near the top of the list.  The shape is classic, the embellished neckline looks like jewellery, pockets are always a plus, and the subtle zebra print texture adds a playful, yet sophisticated element.  Above all, I just feel good when I wear it. . .and isn’t that the point of fashion?

    I don’t blame you! This dress is so chic and I love the colour! You inspired me to get a belt for my dress(es) so I am going belt shopping tomorrow!
    I have a dress that looks very similar to yours (not the same). This post reminds me to bring that dress out to wear soon!

    • Jenny
      July 15, 2012

      Ha ha, thanks so much! I do belt so many things because it draws attention to my narrowest part of my body. Can’t wait to see your new belts, and looking forward to seeing that dress on you!

    Not only may you feel good, but you look good! There is definitely a consistent theme in your dress… I feel like you like bold, crisp, clean lines…. classic is the word I believe you used. Yes, that is precisely the word I would use to describe your style. Lookin’ good girl.

    I love this dress so much. It’s classic, feminine, and figure-flattering. What more could a girl ask for in a dress?
