What I Wore: Dress (via Elana of Room 334), Shirt (Paris Boutique), Necklace (Popbasic), Shoes (Minnetonka)
Shimmery, shiny and with polka dots to boot? Who could resist this gorgeous dress from Elana. Not me for sure! Here's the thing though: this is fancy. Now, I love fancy. I love pretty. But, if you ever read my blog Never Fully Dressed (Without a Style) then you might already realize what the issue might be. It's Wyoming; we don't see much call for fancy clothes where I'm from (No. Seriously. Our local paper just ran an op-ed. calling out a woman for wearing nylons. Gasp! "Clean is Good Enough" was the headline). So when Elana made a passing comment about not being sure how to dress it down...well, Challenge Accepted.
This is still a little fancy. I mean, there's no nylons, but it is a golden dress. But after taking a leaf out of Elana's book and just tying a shirt over it, this fancy look does casual too.
P. S. For a little remix compare and contrasting fun, see how she dresses this baby up to sparkle and shine!
