For the day...
I picked up this pretty lace + tulle dress at Pangea one day in Hillsboro Village because I seriously couldn't pass it up. (It's by Moon Collection, if you're wondering!) It reminded me of a childlike faerie dress or something. Like everything else white/off white I own, I may have put a hole or two in the skirt upon it's first wearing. Still, tulle is one of those materials where a rip here and there is easy to hide. I knew I wanted to pair it with my new Senso Diffusion shoes as soon as they came in the mail! I kept it casual with a cotton ruffle cardigan (one of my trusty favorites) and an off white zipper-embellished clutch. I never would've carried a clutch in the past.. I'm one of those girls who needs a purse that would break someone's back! I've been really digging how lightweight and minimalist a clutch can be!
For the night...
I have to admit the "night" version is definitely my favorite. I felt so classy wearing this! I wore this version yesterday to meet with the landlord on the green Victorian bungalow! It's not all that often I dress in really classic pieces like a blazer. The boyfriend cuffs on this one is my favorite though! The peeking pinstripes are so fun. I opted for a black leather + gold stud fold-over clutch with this ensemble. I'd feel confident wearing this out to dinner + drinks with some girlfriends on a weekday evening... not that that ever happens haha! I'm more of a mid-day coffee shop type of gal, but still! The nipped waist of the buttoned blazer helps show that I actually do have a waist. That's one flaw with full tulle skirts... they definitely balloon out! I have so many black + silver studded belts but none with gold... that's officially going to the top of my "must have" list! Maybe Goodwill will turn up something awesome soon! (Please ignore my awkward lapel! I didn't realize it was acting up until the very end!)
