There was a battle last night and I am proud to say that I emerged victorious against my own inherent desire to constantly layer. Maybe that is a touch dramatic but it does feel like a war sometimes. It's so ingrained in my fashion mentality to layer, layer, layer, that it's a hard habit to break, even when necessary. I tried on at least 5 different options of cardigan's, blazers, scarfs, etc. before saying ah screw it, I'm going bare shouldered damn it!

Funny thing about this dress is that somehow it has survived 4 years, 3 moves, and multiple closet clean-outs to make it to this day and I can only recall wearing it one other time- my college graduation. I always struggle wearing this dress because in all honesty, it's not strapless. It actually is a deep v-neck in the front. I didn't realize how uncomfortable deep v-neck's made me until after I purchased it and struggled through wearing it once. It wasn't until yesterday I though to tuck the top portion in and hike what is the torso of the dress up. Magical.


  1. Great quick fix with the dress, love it as a strapless number and that purse is very cool! Don't forget to enter my Closet Clean-out Giveaway, a new giveaway for every day this week!

  2. Genius! It looks fabulous on you like this!

  3. love the necklace! I bet it took you all of 5 mins to get dressed! Love the simplicity that dresses bring! Great look.

  4. Good call on the neckline! Very chic! And I love your hair! It always looks so "rockstar"

  5. oh wow! looks great as a strapless dress... this look is really all around fab! Love that you opted not to layer, because it is a very chic stand alone dress. Simple necklace...statement bag... done and done! Fab.u.lous!
