One dress, Two looks - Part 2



Hello, everyone! I would like to thank many of you for the birthday wishes, it was very sweet of you :) 

Welcome to the second part of my 'One dress, Two looks' series featuring this fabulous dress from Forever 21.  If you miss the first part, you can catch up here. In this second part, I tried to give this dress a more casual look pairing it with my best summer purchase so far, the denim jacket (seriously, I wear it with everything!) and these wedges that are so comfortable I could run a marathon in them! Plus, they are too cute for words :)

What I like the most about this dress is the feel of the material that is so cooling, perfect for summer. It is well made too considering the price making it a perfect purchase for single season use.  I am beginning to see Forever 21 in a different light and believe that if I took time browsing through the store, I might find some great stuff! 

In short, I honestly think this dress has a lot of mileage and is a real value for money. 





:: Outfit ::

Dress : Forever 21
Denim Jacket : Salsa (value for money, here)
Bag : Balenciaga City (in similar color)
Wedges : Express 
Belt : Mango
Jewelry : Local goldsmith

  1. Like this look as well...more casual and not as bright. Very nice!

  6. Hi there! Love this pretty dress. Funny that I have the same brown shoes featured in the F21 add with the dress! I think I might snag this one for me if I find it in the store tomorrow!
    I like that you gave it a Fall Fashion preview vibe with the burgundy belt and bag. The snake print wedges ROCK! I love snake print; maybe not as much as leopard but close!
    I still cannot believe that you paid a pretty penny for that denim jacket! You shoulda held out until you get here to get a great deal. But it's such a pretty jacket and such a basic that it's a foregone conclusion.
    OoohOOhh! I'm so excited that we get to meet and spend some time together! I'm literally hopping on one leg!
    Have a wonderful day my friend!

  41. Love this dress/color on you! And it for sure has alot of mileage especially with jean jacket and sweaters over top! Enjoy:) Happy belated too!

    to answer your questions...Stuart Weitzman has NEVER done me wrong, I find them to be the most quality and best fitting shoes out there...can't imagine the boot I highlighted would be any different...as for tucking in..as long as you stick with leggings and true skinny jeans they should tuck right into those boots!!! Hope that helps. C

  49. That was such a sweet little post that your hubby wrote. I've never truly ventured too much into the green tonal colors but it actually looks great against the Asian skin tone. Your handbag collection is out of this world.
