You know how sometimes you just throw an outfit on and it looks amazing? Yeah, this wasn’t one of those times. lol. I have been stalking this dress on Gwynnie Bee for months, I knew that it would be adorable for a warm fall day, I knew the length would be perfect for me. I JUST KNEW THIS DRESS WAS AMAZING. Then, these boots I have been hunting for a pair of over the knee boots for awhile, but they had to be perfect. Just the right amount of rugged refinement(I live in Michigan not LA ok), they had to be a flattering color, and then had to have a heel, not a wedge, not a tiny little point, but a good solid heel . I came across these on Torrid(a contemporary plus size line) and I thought they would fit the bill. AND GUESS WHAT! My planning was perfect because this look turned out exactly the way I wanted. The dress is short but not show your butt cheeks off short, and the boots are rugged but make a statement. I carried my fall/winter crossbody bag just so I could have my hands free.
Sorry about the photo quality(iPhone), I actually wore this look to a girls night out concert, and we snapped them before we went in to the venue. Ladies let me tell you, my confidence was through the roof with this look. Powerful, Beautiful, Comfortable. It was all there.
Also…I am not hiding behind my sunglasses for this look, I get really self conscious about my face. So I often just wear my sunglasses in shoots so I can offset my face shape, or hide (in my opinion) my small eyes. I know its not real life, but its something I struggle with. We all have our things right? 🙂
