All Tied Up
If you didn't check out my patchwork dress post, I've been trying to branch out with more skirts and dresses without looking too feminine. I spotted this dress at a super random pop-up shop on my way home from dinner one night and I knew that I had to have it. I loved the lace-up detailing on the front of the dress. It's revealing but not too much, plus it shows off the tattoos on my sternum that no one ever gets to see. The fabric is a little thin, honestly, so I usually wear spanx under it. Pairing the dress with my favorite Nasty Gal studded booties makes my legs look a lot thinner and gives my outfit some more edge (because a grunge-y plaid dress with a lace up front wasn't edgy enough, right?). I also love pairing it with my current favorite purse from H&M. I really love this purse becasue it's big enough to actually carry everything I need all day, and the font pocket and stud detailing reminded me of a motorcycle jacket. The bag is surprisingly high-quality for being cheap. I tend not to spend a lot on my purses because they get so thrashed through out the day that I'm replacing them all the time.
