I bought this dress a few years back for a black tie affair and have not worn it since. So, I thought it would be fun to try wearing it a little more casual. The way it looks above is the way I would accessorize it for a more formal event it along with the shoes below. Take a look in your closet and see if perhaps you have a dress that is just hanging there because you don't know what to do with it. Try pairing it with more casual shoes and a more casual jacket such as a denim or leather one. If you live in the area and would like me to come and help you. It is quite fun.
