dress: NY Collection via Macy's
cross-body: Danielle Nicole via HauteLook
I got this dress a bit ago, as part of making my personal style a bit more defined. I have so many varied styles that I like, I decided last year, in an effort to clear out the clutter, that I would also try to only purchase items that I knew I would love to wear and not just think, I would maybe wear them. This has really helped me to clean out unworn and over-worn items from my closet. All of this will also help with my move coming later this year!
This piece was part of a bunch of pieces I found at Macy's and was probably the piece I was most excited about. It is that perfect combo of comfortable looseness and a boho look with a 30's drop waist silhouette. This is one of the avenues my personal style likes to take-- that boho chic look. One thing that is great about this dress is that yes, it could do that boho look, especially if I paired it with some boots/booties and a cute floppy hat and some long necklaces; but here I have actually gone more towards the 30's look and taken advantage of the drop waist look. And by pairing it with my low Mary Jane styled Talbots heels it completed the look perfectly.
To sum things up, I have been trying to replace non-versatile pieces with versatile pieces that I know I will get more wear out of without forcing the look.
Anyone else going through this process?
