I love pops of color-that's pretty much the only reason why I like this look-so there's not going to be too much more of an explanation. Kate Beckinsale is wearing an Alberta Ferretti dress and Jimmy Choo heels. Really, I could care less about the dress, it's the shoes I love. The color pops and....they're NEON ( if you read the previous post, you know that I have a slight obsession with those colors)!! I lucked up and found my own neon heels (now I have neon heels AND flats lol) and paired them with a black dress like Kate did. I liked the look, but my shoes didn't pop as much as I wanted them to, but whatever. *shrugs*

So I brought a bag from Target last year during the summer neon craze because I just LOVE neon colors. I already had the jewelry, the clothes, even neon flats (smh)! To complete my collection, I just had to have a neon bag. After I bought it, I forgot about it (like I do with a lot of stuff I purchase on a whim). I never even used it! While I was doing some spring cleaning this year, I came across it and realized that I just didn't like it as much as the day that I brought it. But I hate feeling like I wasted money so I decided that I would figure out a way to incorporate it into my wardrobe. The only thing was that it was soooo bright and I didn't want to pair it with my other neons (ie those neon flats I mentioned earlier) so I played the waiting game. And then my answer came in the form of Alessandra Ambrosio in July while browsing Instyle's website. I like how she made the bag her standout piece and kept the colors basic. So, I popped off the tag and did what she did.....

This look is a fusion of elements from two outfits I spotted.
I came across this pic of Bridget Kelly and gravitated to it instantly. I immediately loved everything about her look-her hair, the KTZ printed dress, the bright colored pumps by Gucci-everything was just perfect!
The second look was courtesy of Evelyn Lozada back in January. Her dress was a Felicity & Coco long-sleeved midi dress, which was super cute. I especially loved that she added wedge sneakers to it for a more sporty vibe.
Keeping both of these looks in mind, I knew that I:
a) wanted a dress that was black and white and had some sort of print or lettering on it
b) wanted it to be a midi dress because it was a trend I wanted to try
c) wanted to add a bright shoe to the look.
Welllllll, I found a cute number-printed dress at ASOS, which interestingly enough, showed the dress paired with wedge sneakers. (I tried it on with my wedge sneakers just to see how it looked...I looked freaking ridiculous!!!) I paired it with a bright clutch and peep toe heels.
Overall, I loved how the look came together but this will probably be my only midi length item I buy. The length seems to cut your legs off at a weird spot which can look bad especially if you're not tall. Plus, I just love short dresses way too much!!

So this post features a dress I wore to a wedding last year. At the time, this blog was still an idea in my head, so now I've decided to do an "oldie" post (outfits that I wore before I started the blog) on this look since I haven't blogged in a while. I first saw Nicole Richie in this Keepsake "Lost Without You" cutout dress back in October 2011 and made a mental note to find something like it. Well, when it came time to look for a dress to wear to the wedding, I thought about the Keepsake dress. I ended up finding a dress at Foreign Exchange and was surprised at how spot on it was to Nicole's. Since pink and orange were the big color combo trend then, I added orange, pink, and yellow extras :)
