Hello Friends , Hope you have all had a great week. Recently I was putting together some outfits , having pictures taken , and really having a hard time liking the way they came out . I couldn't really figure out what exactly I didn't like , until I realized they really weren't very colorful and that's why I didn't really feel like they were my style. I love a lot of basic , neutral colored looks on other people but I guess I'm just not comfortable with out a little ( or a lot ) of color . So anyway, I deleted a bunch of pictures , and ended up wearing my regular old cocktail dress/ fun accessory / kindergarten teacher type looks. I'll show too what I wore and some other ideas for styling these dresses or other similar dresses you may have. The four dresses all come from thredup.com and each one was less than $30.00. I checked my thredUP app today and there were more than 50 designer cocktail and casual dresses in every size range available.
I love the way this dress from The Limited sparkles. I paired it with minty green but there are so many ways to style a basic gray dress I'm sure I'll wear it again soon with a different color or pattern.
This Nine West dress is definitely one of my favorites and really doesn't require a lot of accessories ( but of course I added a bunch ) and the necklace is from luluavenue.com. Check out my Instagram post on this dress for links to best luluave stylists.
I love this Guess dress so much and especially love how it looks with this polka dot trench coat I found in several colors in the children's department at Target. This dress is so fun and so easy to style. I love to mix stripes with bold , bright colors.
This Topshop dress is so fun and versatile . I found it in June and wore it on it's own with simple strappy sandals to a family event. I love the dress so much I decided to warm it up with black fur and booties for a winter outfit. The jewelry is from @d.alexander_collections ( Instagram and Facebook ) and you are welcome to use my code : JENNQ30 for 30% off your order.
