On The Fringe

I tend to have fancy tastes but not a fancy lifestyle, so I’ve been looking for a fun date night dress that isn’t super dressy and that’s also versatile enough to wear for daytime as well.

Enter this amazing dress from Alice & You!

Dress:  Alice & You (Available at ASOS here)
Booties:  Mossimo for Target (old)
Sunglasses:  Tory Burch

The forest green color and velvet made this an instant crush for me, but the fringe and easy shape pushed it over the edge.  I had the sleeves and hem shortened to work better for my petite frame, and I just love the results.

Necklaces:  Forever 21 and The Limited

Here, I’m pairing the dress with casual fringe booties for a laid-back date night.  The fringe and mini length of the dress give it more of a bohemian rock-n-roll flavor and keep it from feeling too dressy.  

Clutch:  The Limited

It was fairly warm when I was taking these pics, but I would add tights to stave off the winter chill. 

Earrings:  The Limited

I love that this dress is a take on the 70s trend without going too retro.  Somehow, it also reminds me of clothes I wore in the 90s while still feeling fresh.  Quite an accomplishment for a little mini dress!

Do you like fringe?  Velvet?  Are you a fan of the 70s trend?

P.S. For a slightly dressier date night recently, I skipped the necklaces and went with these earrings and these booties.
