Dress Week 2: Planning for Spring

Happy Monday everyone!

For those of you were off of work today, let me just acknowledge my jealousy!  :-)  For the rest of us, it was back to work and back to trekking out in winter weather!

While the weather outside is frightful, I'm thinking about my outfits for St. Louis Fashion Week in the spring and came up with this outfit.

Dress:  Eva Mendes for New York & Company (See here - no longer available on-line)
Boots:  Target (Available here)
I'm loving this one-shouldered asymmetrical dress made cool with open-toe ankle booties and gold jewelry.  This look could be worn now with the addition of some warm tights.
Jacket:  Target
Clutch:  The Limited
Ring:  Shoxie.com (Similar here)
I featured this dress here on the blog back in December, but at the time the dress was too long.  I used a belt to create a shorter look, but I always knew that I wanted to get it hemmed.
I love that I can now wear the dress loose or belted to create different looks!
Necklace:  Vintage
For this jacket in another look, see here.


  1. The dress looks much better now that it's shorter. You have a great eye for HOW to have things tailored so they look great on your body. Cute outfit overall, love the ring! Appreciate the close up accessory shot.

  2. Edgy hotness with this outfit! The dress is very nice, and I love this jacket. The peep-toe booties are a tough touch while not being over-the-top tough. Awesomeness!


  3. Thanks John! Can't wait to wear it out and about when the weather is more cooperative!

  4. Thank you! Definitely better shorter! With it longer, I was very limited to wearing it only with a belt and bloused as I did in December. I love that I have so many more options now!

  5. The dress looks so much better shorter and I love the way you styled it with the lace jacket, open toe booties and the gold accessories. You will look awesome at fashion week. :)
