Winter Florals: Dream vs Reality

Cold Ass Winter Florals

I’d love to tell you that I styled this bare legged because that’s truly the way I thought the dress looked its best, but nope. I wore cotton leggings underneath to stay warm! I made sure to snap some photos of how I preferred to style it for Christmas Eve versus how I actually wore it. Sometimes, I love styling cold weather looks and sometimes it really is a pain in my ass. I thought I would style this with brown suede boots, but I couldn’t even wear them because of the all the snow! Read More Β»

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

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?
