Here’s the thing about buying a drop dead gorgeous, totally stunning, wildly memorable, absolutely beautiful dress: once you wear it a couple times around most of the people you know and post photos of it, it’s a bit difficult to continue to do so without changing something about it.
Take this dress for example. I love it. I can’t believe it’s mine. The structure and shape of it. The metallic threads that catch all the light. The mini hem and knot in front. It’s an awesome dress.
And I would wear it again and again, not giving a damn about who has seen me in it because I love it and feel good in it. But that doesn’t make for great blog or Instagram content. And people around The City Beautiful would probably get tired of seeing it too.
As you can see, I wore the dress recently to an event and paired it with a simple black bag and some iridescent pumps. It’s so fun yet classy and easy to wear. Cute and comfortable dresses for the win!
Then, instead of not wearing it for awhile, because that’s not really a viable option, I added the cape from another rather memorable dress that I have worn and posted about, which changed both pieces completely.
Mom wasn’t entirely sure she liked the combination, but I stand by it. Though the fabric of the cape isn’t metallic, the grey of it picks up on the silver tones in the dress, as do the shiny silver sequins. It’s a sophisticated look that could go to just about any evening party or event. I paired it with gold and black glitter eye makeup, shoes, and bag, along with a maroon lipstick.
And now, honestly, I’m already sad this is another memorable look that will be tough to wear on repeat.
