GET THE LOOK
So I ordered this very pretty dress when H&M was having a Labor Day Sale. I saw one of my favorite photographers/bloggers Carin of Paris in Four Months rocking it as she traipsed around Rome. I thought hmmm, well if she looks this good on vacation in this dress, so can I. Maybe I will even manifest myself to Rome. This is how influence works. I can’t tell you have much impulse buying I’ve done thinking I could pull something off. This dress is actually really beautiful in person, almost too pretty for it to be a mere 20 something dollars. It feels super luxe and it just skims all the right places and flows so lovely. Here’s the thing though, I’m not a pretty pretty she-she dolled up kinda girl. When I put on this dress it instantly felt too girlie for me. It gives that maybe going to a wedding or it’s a one time occasion kind of dress. That’s definitely not what I wanted. I needed to tone this dress down for everyday. I had to toughen it up a bit with a camo jacket and black mules. Who knew a few accessories could make an occasion dress and everyday dress.
If its good enough for Zoe Kravitz & Tracee Ellis Ross, it’s good for you too!
