Drop-waist Flounce Dress


I’m on and off when it comes to flounce skirts or dresses. When I first picked up this dress off the rack (on sale! Never hurts to try on something on sale), my cousin and I were both on the fence about it. That’s until I put it on.

I instantly fell in love with this little number. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ve probably noticed that I’d much rather choose shorts over a dress, but I couldn’t give this one up! The simplicity in this style can easily be transformed from a daytime movie ensemble to a night out for some yummy supper and drinks.

Here, I decided to pair together some slip-ons for a more “cool, daytime” vibe. I initially was planning on wearing Converse, but I was too lazy to tie any laces so I just stuck my feet in these instead :P And trust me when I say this dress looks great with some sick heels as well!! I’ve definitely tried it out ;)

What are your thoughts on flounce skirts/dresses?? Loving it or not so much? Comment below, I love to read what you all have to say! Stay classy, Realists!



SONY DSCBesides the fact that I’m covered in goosebumps (*sigh* Summer really is leaving :( ), how cute are these nautical inspired bracelets? They came as a set, and considering how nautically obsessed I am (give me anything with blue and white stripes and I’m in love!), I had to pair it all together. I love purchasing bracelet sets like so because you can always change up your arm candy by wearing everything at once, or picking and choosing 1 or 2 at a time. Practicality ;)

Drop-waist Dress


After watching The Great Gatsby yesterday, I felt the need to pull out my one and only drop-waist dress. Oh, how I wish I could’ve lived during the 20’s!

I bought this dress a couple of years ago after snagging it from this crazy sale at Jacob for about $10-$15 (original price, I believe was around $50+). I love the silhouette of a drop-waist because I’m always reminded of the Roaring Twenties. Unfortunately, and I’m not sure why, I actually haven’t worn this dress that often since I first purchased it. I guess watching that movie reminded me of it ;)

I was debating between a few pairs of shoes, and chose to go with these pair of leopard heels with a black bow. Funny because I remember a few years back when I first bought these heels, I thought that they were a nice, high height. Today?? I rarely buy heels lower than 5″. I say the higher, the better ;)

I threw on some pearl bracelets to give it more of that 20’s vibe. And voila, my Gatsby inspired outfit!

Realists, it’s Friday! Have a wonderful day and an awesome weekend. Stay classy!

SONY DSCAdded bonus on this dress? Those pockets! A dress with pockets automatically wins my heart!
