Nude Metal

by Thursday, April 16, 2015

To say I’ve had a trying week would be putting it mildly. Between being sick and dealing with some family issues, I’ve been so thankful for shooting and writing for the blog to be a reprieve from everything that’s been going on. Shooting this look was a reminder of the sheer power of fashion. I hadn’t left the couch in days – but as soon as I forced myself to get ready and put on this dress – I instantly felt better. Powerful, almost. The draping and color walk the line between office and date night – and the flattering fit and comfort make it a dream to wear.

Oh, and by the way?

This baby was $27. From Charlotte Russe.

I know.

I paired this mushroomy-nude dress with simple metals – the pointed toe on my heels played nicely with the silver tone of my clutch. Then I grabbed my favorite long ring and simple layering necklaces to keep the look as clean as possible so the focus stays on my gorgeous dress.
