c/0 Very.com* Blazer, Dress, Shoes; Forever 21* Earrings; Jason Wu for Target* Satchel

When the lovely people at Very.com gave me the opportunity to review an outfit from their website, I jumped at the chance!  Once I received these pretty clothes, I was just waiting for the perfect time to wear them, and that time turned out to be the NYC Bloggers Swap last week (full recap of that event coming soon!).

This outfit was perfect for that event because I needed something that I could wear to work and then easily transition to the Bloggers Swap after work.  The weather that day was really pleasant, so I felt very easy/breezy in this light floaty dress and bare legs.  After all the Jason Wu for Target madness (you can read more about my experience here and here), I’d also been waiting for the perfect time to bust out my favorite purchase from that collection- the satchel.  Did I mention I’m one of those weirdos who likes to hoard her new clothes until it’s the perfect time to wear them? ;)

Aside from feeling really comfortable, my favorite things about this outfit are the details: the pretty keyhole on the back of the dress, the knot on these peep-toe wedges, the ruched sleeves on the blazer, the simple chicness of the satchel, and the beautiful embroidery across the front of the dress.

To take this outfit from day to night I threw on the blazer (which I started to wear earlier, except I was too warm!), changed from flats to these wedges, and put on some red lipstick.  These three easy little changes made me feel glam and ready to meet-and-greet at the swap! :)  This is one of my favorite outfits that I’ve worn recently and I’ll definitely be checking again at Very.com to see what other lovely clothes I might want to purchase for spring!

    I’m still pretty jealous of this dress. The details are so beautiful.

    Okay, weird clothes hoarder. We’ll just have to go out and do more fun things so you don’t have to hoard!

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com Nnenna

      Thanks Alex- the details really make this dress I think! :) Haha, I know, it is kind of a weird habit to hoard my new clothes- I guess I just always like to have something fresh and unworn in my closet! :D

    I SO want an Alex in my life who will take pictures of me out on the town like this. You look stunning, grrrrl! The dress is amazing, and I love how you made it season appropriate (spring, that is) by pairing it with the satchel.
