Teal & Silver Tax Return

I’ve already spent my tax return and I haven’t even done my taxes yet. This is why I’m always broke. But I’ve decided I really want this outfit, so it’ll be okay. I love teal and silver together and all of these pieces are something I could get a lot of use out of. I just can’t decide which shiny Jeffrey Campbells I want…

The Trashy Diva ballerina dress is such a classic style and it’s so versatile; I love that they’ve got it in this gorgeous new color. The harness adds a sophisticated edge with the leather collar which would work perfectly with the shape of the dress. Finally, a pair of super shiny, super high, silver shoes.

Dress: Trashy Diva

Harness: Zana Bayne

Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Day to Night: Leopard

In my opinion, leopard print isn’t going anywhere. It may disappear from the runways and fashion mags every now and then, but it’s always a classic staple and best presented with a retro twist. So I got to playing around with styling a dress I’ve been coveting and decided to do a Day to Night post.

The dress:

Trashy Diva’s Ballerina Mini Dress.

I absolutely, completely adore Trashy Diva. Their clothing has the most flattering fit, perfect tailoring and is the best combination of modern and retro.

DAY

For day, you want to choose simple accessories and really let the dress do all the work. A simple cropped black cardigan or shrug (unbuttoned to show off the neckline) and black oxfords keep it relaxed and casual. Minimal jewelry like a leather wrap bracelet work well with the shoes and bag. I chose a structured brown leather bag to contrast all the black and play off the brown in the dress.

 

NIGHT

I went absolutely retro glamorous for the night look. Red and Leopard print are a classic combination and one that I couldn’t avoid. I chose a retro red pump and black stockings. For jewelry, I intentionally chose House of Harlow 1960, one of my favorites and I think a perfect compliment to this dress. Grab a vintage or vintage inspired clutch or evening bag, a beige trench for that wonderful modern/retro edge, a glorious updo and you’re good to go. Even better than the trench would the be the black velvet Bustle Jacket from Trashy Diva.
