The Perfect Holiday Dress

The second I saw this incredible amazing GORGEOUS coat dress I knew I had to have it and frankly for under $50 and being velvet it was a heck of a steal.  The 40s and 50s inspired feel to the styling is so classic that this is a piece to wear for holiday parties for years to come!

The belting on this dress is incredible for defining a waist and the way the skirt portion of this dress floats away from the body is flattering for every single body type!  This is such an amazingly flattering dress.  The wrap style of the coat dress emphasizes and cinches any waist. A contrasting belt further emphasizes the waist so this is just a dream for anyone who wants that real hourglass shape.

I have already worn this dress to holiday concerts and plan on wearing it to parties and frankly any excuse I can find!  Its incredibly well made which was my biggest concern with ordering overseas.  But overall I love this dress its going to be a staple in my wardrobe!

The Shoe EVERY Woman NEEDS in Her Closet

Every woman needs this pair of shoes in their wardrobe hands down no questions asked!  A simple or less than simple pair its totally up to you. A nude flat is a must have!

Nude flats are the perfect shoe for any occasion! They can be very easily dressed up or dressed down. They are a quick easy shoe to grab in place of sandals or sneakers (especially in fall) while looking more put together. They automatically make any outfit look polished, chic and put together.  They blend in so well with your foot that it continues the line of your leg so beautifully.   They are the perfect neutral color that goes with everything and depending on shape are perfect for any outfit, jeans dresses, shorts, anything.

Nude flats are one of those items like black eyeliner that you will see me wearing frequently with many different looks.  They go great with everything!  Must have for every woman!

Expanding the Use of Capris

So as fall is approaching, lets be honest for many of us its not here yet so the capri is still getting a ton of love! Its getting a great transition into fall for me and you can too!

The first key in transitioning this piece is the shoes.  Making capris fall friendly is going to be ditching the sandals for booties or sneakers.  That instantly is going to scream fall instead of summer stretching the wearability of one of my favorite pieces.  Toss a sweater over a cute top like this one Women’s Cocoon Cardigan (totally one of my go tos since I’m always cold and its a great light weight sweater).  Wear those capris as long as you can!
