Look Transformation: Work Drab to Evening Fab

Ok ok. So, this work look is not exactly drab. The houndstooth dress has a cool modern vibe with its figure flattering silhouette and its metallic finish. For work, the dress is worn with a black cardigan, black tights, and t-strap pumps. To easily ready the outfit for an evening affair, a black belt with goldtone pyramidal studs is thrown into the mix. The cardigan is tossed and an oversize clutch is added to hold all the essentials.

    I have been lurking on the edges of your blog for a little while now, and I just wanted to say that I love your style! You are very current in your fashion without being overly trendy (love how you mix colors, especially in your accessories) and you know what looks good on you and you wear it perfectly. Good show! I will keep reading and getting ideas. Thanks for doing what you do so well.
