Stunningly Structured


Cue the drama! I'm obsessed with this beautifully structured BCBGenerations dress. The fit is beyond, the side pockets are adorable, the open back is flirty without being in your face and most of all... I'm dying over the eye catching shoulders. I've always described my style as simply dramatic and this dress encompasses the clean and over the top elements perfectly. Because the weather rarely dips below summer levels here in LA, it's important to find colors that transition into fall and winter. I always describe October as the time between the bright colors of summer and the darks of winter. It's during this period that color choice becomes extra important. One of the reasons I love a dramatic sleeve so much is for the re-wear factor. By simply adding a jacket the dress will instantly look like a whole new piece. Following this rule of thumb, I decided to throw on my new gold sequin INC jacket for round two. This fall, gold sequins are one of my biggest obsessions and combining them with my new favorite dress is nothing short of a match made in fash heaven. To add a hint of  personal style and create a softer color pallet for the ensemble, I added a flower hair accessory I recently purchased to the jacket for a feminine pop. Check out more pictures below. What is your favorite way to wear your dresses twice?

  94. OMG I love everything about this outfit. I actually bought a similar dress at lord and taylor however I did not look as good. I agree the structure of this is perfect and how can you go wrong with a gold jacket like that. I actually scored some awesome deals at Eileen Fisher Black Friday Sale and hoping for more at Eileen Fisher Cyber Monday. You should take a look if you have time. Anyway you're blog is wonderful keep up the good work!
