AFTER – 2

I took the after shot at my girlfriend JS’ casa and kept it pretty simple.  New styling gives this piece a brand new vibe.  Wanna see??

I went to Accessory Town and paired the dress with a few of my favorite essentials.

AFTER – 2

I wore a vintage velvety tiger print belt along with a pair of gold, sparkly DKNY tights (a Marshalls find – my fave spot for tights!) to bring some yellowy tones into the dress.

The necklace is a DIY one too!  I took a thick chain and pinned a sequined dove appliqué to it to create a fun statement necklace.  For this go, I wanted a little action going on up top!

Balancing Act!

I also paired this with a H&M cardi for when it got chillier (yep, it’s back to normz - 75 degree weather!!) along with a steal of a pair of booties from Cotton On.  No joke, five bones!  I even bought an extra pair to DIY.  (You’ll see that shortly…)

So here are both looks – super simp Look #1 and full of flair Look #2!

Outfit Rewind!

I’m loving going back and re-envisioning these pieces in a whole new light!  The before shot was taken about 2 1/2 years ago which is CRAZY to me!  Oh, the evolution!

Oh, and that black spot on my shin?  Yeah, it’s not a bruise (shocker) it’s a big flying spider that only flew away once I flicked it off of me.  Super cute, eh?

TGIF!!
