I’ve been on the hunt for a leather dress for awhile now. But I haven’t been able to justify the price for a real one, and there has never been a faux one that really hit my fancy. Until now. I was browsing on the Nordstrom Topshop section a few weeks ago, and this dress immediately caught my attention! The shape, sleeves and quality looked nice from the pictures (though the fit on the model was a bit meh), so I decided to give it a go. One of my biggest concerns was the bust area, and if it would be too constricting or not flatter someone with a larger bust. Thankfully, the entire fit was amazing and the quality of the faux leather is gorgeous. For this post, I paired it with my Acne Jensen boots which have become one of my most worn boots this season and we are only 2 months in! I can also see this dress with over-the-knee boots (love these for a splurge and these for a budget buy), loafers (how cute are all these) or a high heeled ankle boot (these and these have caught my eye). I should mention that the dress is lined and the faux leather is quite heavy so it will most certainly keep you warm. It feels good to find a classic wardrobe piece that I know will be a staple for years to come.
A bit of a more dramatic tutorial for today’s blog post. This is my first time using the Vice 4 palette so I give my first impressions
