Breezy Back








Breakdown:
dress- BCBGeneration [same] ***Check in-store for the sale price!
shoes- Ralph Lauren [similar]
necklace & rings- thrifted or gifted

On a random trip through the sale sections at the mall a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this BCBGeneration dress tucked behind a few sweaters. If it were me, I would have hid it there on purpose to save for later when the price would be marked down even lower, but maybe that wasn't the real reason. I only stepped in the mall for the Clinique counter, but the BCBG section was calling me like sirens to Odysseus! I couldn't help myself. I had to try on this dress because 1) purple and 2) 30% off. Can you blame me?

In the dressing room, I knew I needed a cool piece of jewelry to add to it. Since the focus was all on the back of the dress, why distract from its beauty by putting the flash in front? It was a no-brainer! All that had to be done was stitch in a necklace and the dress was set. 

That just goes to show that you can buy a simple piece and add your own twist to it at any time! The next time I wear it I may put a necklace in the front, or I may switch out the back necklace and wear something else. Or I might be sans jewelry... but that's the fun in fashion, don't you think?

PS: Don't forget to check out the Skip N' Whistle sale on Fab.com! I'll have the banner on the side of the page for a few days, so hurry and get 'em while they're hot!
