The Change Up

Wednesday, August 22, 2012 170 0

Dress: BCBG. Handbag: Coach Willis. Shoes: Joan & David. Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I love this super girly BCBG dress with floral appliqué.  I’ve had it for a few years and have worn it a hundred times, but found I was in a bit of a rut with it.  I always wore it with the exact same accessories: a black belt, black strappy sandals and a black handbag.  I was definitely in need of a change up, and thought my saddle brown bag and new leopard pumps added a more casual vibe.

    This dress is so unique and the color is stunning on you! I love how it has such a 3D feel–you almost don’t even need jewelry, so I love that you went minimal!

    I am in love with your dress – it’s so fun and unique. I am guilty of doing the same thing – I find one good way to wear a favorite piece of mine and then wear it to death. A change up is fun sometimes and I love how you’ve remixed here!
