Blockin....

Are you still color blocking?  I found this little dress at Forever 21 a couple months ago and the first time I wore it, it was sans accessories.  This time around I wanted to mix it up a bit and belted it to give it a little more shape instead of wearing it as a loose shift.  The dress pretty much stands on its own and doesn't need much extra so slouchy black boots and a black coat were the perfect compliments.

Style Tip:  Do you have a loose shift dress that you want to change the look of?  Belt it!  I prefer a skinny belt, since it allows you to blouse your dress over it a little better than a wide belt.  Its such a great way to give your dress a completely different look without breaking the bank.  For more belted shift inspiration, Priscila over at the My Showroom Blog, here, is the queen of belting a shift!

  4. I hate wearing shift dresses without a belt because I feel like it covers up my whole body and makes me look like I am wearing a sack, but belted always looks better on me! You look super cute. Love that last picture you are totally working it!
