Dress Me Up

 Dress: Zara, Heels: Gap (similar here), Accessories: J.Crew and bib necklace via Gilt, J.Crew bracelets, F21 ring, Rebecca Minkoff MAC (awesome leopard version), Michael Kors watch, Karen Walker sunglasses

There's nothing more fun that dressing up for yourself. Usually when my husband and I go out, we don't dress up unless we're going somewhere specific or to a special restaurant. But just to change things up, I thought I would get some wear out of this dress that hangs in my closet, begging to be worn.

Funnily enough, here's a fun factoid about me...whenever I had a huge exam in school (midterm, final, etc.), I would dress up to take my exam. After weeks of studying in loungewear, I would always "celebrate" the end of all the hard work by lookin' fancy. My professors and TAs always had something to say about that too. =)

  3. I think I have just discovered a new fav blog!!! Lady, you have the most killer style...I'm so excited that you commented on my post so that I found yours ;) Loving that this look is so feminine/classic like Audrey Hepburn--but the cobalt, the red, shoes, and the awesome hairstyle give it a modern and edgy twist.

    Following you!
