A Leota Holiday: 1 Dress, Styled 2 Ways + a Giveaway

DSC_1245
With grad school and working, I haven’t had much time to think about what I’d wear to the 8 million holiday parties I have this year, but when a blogger friend who now works for Leota asked if I was interested in styling a dress of my choice, I started to think about what might be most versatile, easiest to wear and fit my style. This dress by Leota was it! I picked it out solely off its flattering silhouette, but it’s such a quality piece. I decided to style it two ways since I immediately had multiple visions of how to style and re-style it for different occasions.
This first look is how I plan to wear it for a holiday party this Thursday. A bit of fur and a pair of Louboutins, I’m going to be one classy bitch..with an arm tattoo.

I styled it for for another holiday event, the GRC holiday gala last night with a leather jacket and an over the knee boots to make it a little more casual and a little more rocker. I can’t wait to wear this again with a pair of kick ass ankle boots. Which look do you prefer?

    This dress is adorable! I would never think to pair it with a fur vest, but I love it. I'm already thinking about what shoes I have that might go with it… My new pair of strappy, black heels would be perfect! (kerrijo11@gmail.com)

    It's hard to choose between these two looks, by the way. I'm always, always, always partial to leather but I love how you mixed it up with the fur! So unexpected.
