Elegant Night Wear
Aren’t we all over the normal tight spanx dresses and bodysuits from BCBG or Fashionnova. Going out doesn’t necessary have to be about showing off more(skin). When I was in college and would get dressed to go to the club I would almost put myself through a check-off list in regards to if I was showing enough skin. As I’m maturing, I think to myself, “Who created the rule or the perception that women have to show cleavage or legs to go out for a night of fun?” Not to mention it takes away the fun of being creative when you just put a dress on that doesn’t express who you really are. I definitely still show off a little skin time to time, but I always put myself to the test. I have always stuck by a rule when getting dress for a night out and it’s been working wonders for me for years now. My rule has always been if I want to show a little cleavage, I have to wear trousers or a bottom that doesn’t reveal a large portion of my legs. And vice versa for legs, no cleavage. I have no idea where I got this rule from, but you all should try it and share your thoughts. Next time you plan to head out into the town try to create an outfit that expresses your personality. Add some thought and flavor!!
Often times when I’m getting dress I try to figure out ways to remix pieces. It’s those little things in your house that can set you apart from the rest. I have seen the most creative women who look better than women who have clothing on worth thousands of dollars. I tell people all the time, “Don’t get wrapped in the cost and name.” There are so many lovely high designer pieces I would love to own. But when I get inspired by a high end look I remake it into what’s comfortable for my pockets to afford. Usually, I always go for the accessory and recreate the wardrobe portion with more affordable brands. Sometimes the scarf that you lay your edges down could be the cutest belt to complete your look or even a brooch placed on a shoe to add flavor and glam.
Below are three looks I created that expresses who I am but also captures the creativity in using the little things I already own at home.
