|Racerback Gathered Black Dress All Saints | Black Sweater Wrap Top Diane Von Furstenberg | Panda Necklace, Spike Rings, and Black Leggings Forever 21 | Overpas Black Suede Boots Steve Madden|
My casual Friday look. Had I known this was going to be a warm day I would have worn this dress minus the boots, leggings, and sweater and worn my studded belt and some black wedges. Alas, I had no idea it would be so warm, but layering the sweater was a good idea for later in the afternoon.
I have a lot of black clothing, and have been trying to avoid to buy anything black for awhile. However, when I spotted this dress at Crossroads Trading Co, it was too hard to resist. It is one of those dresses I could not see myself wearing more than once particularly because I did not know how to wear it.
I feel the layering of the top and leggings give it and interesting effect as it plays up the busy bottom of the dress. Tying up the wrap top also makes it seem like I am a little taller, which is usually the case when your look is monochrome. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and am very happy Crossroads Trading Co gives me an opportunity to try new things without breaking the bank.
