I swear to god every time I try to photograph my outfits in public, with a tripod and remote, I shake out of nerves. I don't know how some style bloggers do it. As soon as I set my tripod up I turn into a paranoid mess checking every balcony for an audience that is using me as their comedic reference of the morning. Or I am just traumatized from the first time I did this outside of my dorm and a bunch of future fraternity brothers made fun of me. Which is neither here nor there.
I happened to find this Free People dress at Marshall's, it is from their intimate collection and it fits like a glove. The velvet burnout fabric smooths every inch of your body, which makes it the ideal body con dress. My favorite part is the plunging v-neck, it accentuates your collar bones while showing just enough cleavage. The tasteful length makes this dress the perfect duo of sexy and sly, which is why I fell in love with it, and the woman shopping next to me did as well, I assume she was in her late forties early fifties and she bought the same dress but with navy blue velvet instead.
A few nights prior I wore this dress out with wedges and a long bullet necklace for a nighttime look but I wanted to play with the idea of dressing it down, I thought the army jacket and body chain with these taupe booties would make for a fun outfit. Whether heading to happy hour drinks or lunch with an old friend I think this look makes for something a little edgier but tasteful, and that's what I strive for in my day to day looks.
