BLACK LICORICE (+ LOVE GIVEAWAY [CLOSED])

Friday, June 01, 2012





In the past, I would only buy garments with prints or bold colors but as of late, I've become more appreciative of simplicity accented by cut and silhouette. The front of this dress looks like a basic flowy, shift dress. I'd normally pass these dresses by as I'm shopping but what really caught my eye was the deep, draped back! Same goes for the skirt; I'd probably flip past it on the rack if it was just another black maxi skirt, but the long fringe makes the garment so much more dynamic! I can admit that because of my habit of passing by more simple pieces, I actually lack basics in my closet (I'm working on remedying this though)! It goes to say that sometimes, less really is more.

This outfit is actually composed of a chiffon, shift-style dress that has been tucked into a fringe maxi skirt, so don't be mistaken that it's one piece! ;) I've always liked garments with exposed backs but the drape back is even more perfect for summer, especially if you hate that humid, clingy feeling of fabric in hot weather!

I've also been featured in the street style section of the June 2012 issue of NeverLazy Magazine so don't forget to check it out here! <3
LOVE is also sponsoring a giveaway on my blog for this dress, or any other dress you like from their website! If you want something a little brighter, you can find this dress in orange or watermelon pink as well! To enter this giveaway, follow the rules on the widget below:

  1. That is such a cool dress!! I love the cut of it. Have to admit...I was fooled - thought it was one piece. haha. The pieces go really well together! (: That spiked headband is just too cool for words.

    OH! your hair looks GORGEOUS in these photos *O*

    1. Thank you Theresa! :D I'm thinking of hemming the dress into a top so I can wear it with some high-waisted shorts more often!

  102. I am very inspired by your style. I also really enjoy reading your stories about junior year. I'm entering junior year next and its nice to hear a real person telling it how it is. Still a little scared but using your fashion tips at least I can be scared in style. : )
