Email Bag: 1 Lace Dress, 2 Ways

I love getting emails and Facebook messages from BOTO readers! So how excited was I to get an email from Ericka J. in Savannah, GA about a recent fashion find. She writes:First, thanks for your email, Ericka! Second, kudos on your new lace dress. It's definitely on-trend for the season and there are a number of ways to wear it. Here is how I paired 1 dress, 2 ways:

The Workweek
Dressing for the office doesn't mean you have to appear dowdy. A simple lace sheath is awesome in a bright pop of color.  Streamline your office-appropriate look with a great pair of nude booties, a skinny belt, and simple accessories like a delicate chain necklace and a suede bucket bag. Add a little city-girl edge to your ensemble with a fur-lined parka and you're good to go!

The Weekend

The great thing about a trendy dress is that you can mix and match it for a variety of different settings and occasions. For instance, weekends are made for catching up with girlfriends, visiting your favorite local coffee shop or even shopping til' you drop! For your weekend look, opt for a pair of fun flats like sparkly oxfords. Throw on a buttoned cardigan in a neutral color and cinch the waist with your skinny belt to create a curvy silhouette. Voila!

Ericka, I hope this helps! Be sure to send pics of how you put your ensembles together! And if you have a wardrobe conundrum, email me at brainsoftheoutfit@gmail.com!

  1. I'm soooo saving this. The look with the glitter shoes, screams Dee Dee.

  2. Isn't that fun! I was hoping the funness didn't get lost of people. So happy you "get it."
