Crazy Style Love, BCBG Dress

Dress: BCBG (old). Belt: Club Monaco (similar). Clutch: Balenciaga (similar). Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar).

 

I’ve teamed up with the super sweet Ani (from Fleurani) and the lovely Rita (from Coast With Me) to showcase what 3 ladies from 3 different countries would wear to a summer wedding.  I recently wore this pretty purple dress to an event, but it would be perfect for a wedding as well.  My tip for standing out amongst the usual sea of black at a wedding is to be bold and go for some colour.  As you can see, Ani and Rita were on the same colour page.  It’s the perfect way to be noticed but to not outshine the bride. 

 

Side note: This dress is actually backless, but sometimes a backless dress just doesn’t feel appropriate.  The black panel on the dress is a silk top I threw on to add a little extra coverage.

Shake Your Tail Feather

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 156 0

Skirt: Club Monaco. Necklace/Collar: Simons. Top: Zara. Shoes: Boutique 9. Clutch: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: Chanel. Ring: Le Chateau.

 

A girl can never own too many feather skirts.  Okay, so, maybe that’s not true, but this girl (i.e. me) can never own too many feather skirts.  When I picked up this dip-dyed stunner from Club Monaco, I just couldn’t say no to it’s purple sister.  Both had to come home with me (thankfully they were on sale otherwise I would have had to choose between siblings).  I know feathers are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I find them to be so fun, feminine and luxurious.  Do you have any feathered pieces in your wardrobe?

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?
