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?
