Dress up Chronicles

Last night around 2 am, I was kind of recovering from a rather stressful night for very different reasons. I was sitting in bed pissed off just cruising the blogs, facebook and twitter. And as I was sitting there I was thinking about different outfits I can put together and even if I never wear them out the house, it makes me feel good. So after much debate with myself I got up and decided to play dress up. You all know playing dress is a way for me to feel better and to get my mind off what ever I’m going through. I would take pictures outside but here in Jersey its been 20 degrees and under and I kinda don’t want to freeze lol.
This dress is one of the finds I found in my mother’s closet. Unfortunately because its all black, you really can see all the details of the dress. But I love it. It’s super soft, and the length is perfect. I think I may cut out the shoulder pads, I haven’t decided just yet. The shoes you’ve seen before, but they were a lucky find at Payless. And the bag…the large carry all clutch from American Apparel (courtesy of my bestie) I have been salivating over since the first time I saw it own Dulce Candy’s blog. I love the bold colors of the bag and the shoes together. I figured if the dress is black to keep it fun and funky I had to add color.

Dresses and Combat Boots

So this dress I bought about three years ago when i turned 18  to go to the club. I never…and I mean never wear it cause its just so damn bright lol but last night I got this awesome outfit idea. I’m thinking to get a dress that’s just like the pink, in a much darker color and rock it just like this.

I’m in love with my combat boots, so I’m always looking for something to wear with them. and of course the vest and belt just made the outfit. I can’t even lie.

Dress- Know Style
Vest- Old Navy
Boots- Walmart
Belt- Lane Bryant
