Look Transformation

Ok, ok. I love the super soft texture and hand-tacked honeycomb detail at the bodice of this dress. The empire waist sweater dress is very sweet. But, sometimes you want to be a little less sweet, and a little sassier. To jazz up the dress, giraffe print mary jane pumps are added. The dress is then belted with a black leather belt to cinch the waist and break up the red. Et voila.

    I can’t decide between look 2 and 3…I think I’m leaning towards sans belt!

    Love the dress! I wish I could carry off something like that (my giant bazoombas will prevent me from ever looking good in such a style). Sigh.

    Looks fab on you, though! I love the color red.

    See how a belt can change an all outfit, well in this case with the help of the shoes.
