Add Edge to a Lace Dress

Last week I had the pleasure of working with a personal stylist, Shell B Cheri, while she was driving through Richmond. Although I’d consider myself pretty skilled at remixing my own wardrobe, it was so helpful to have a fresh set of creative eyes on my closet. With a more limited maternity closet, I’d found myself in a rut, but after an hour with Shell B and seven new looks, I felt refreshed and re-inspired. This look, a perfect mix of sweetness and edge, was an instant favorite.

The last time I wore this dress, I went for a Spring-y, feminine vibe, pairing it with denim and wedges. I love how versatile a lace dress can be!

    Lauren, you definitely added edge to that pretty blush lace dress when pairing it with the leather vest. I did the same today when I remixed my Orange Tee with a Leather Bomber. You are 100% radiant pregnant by the way. =)

    I loved seeing Amy Ann as your co-host too. I love her blog.

    Have a great new week! Ada. =)

    I love the combination of leather and the blush lace. Plus, those shoes are the perfect nude-to-you sandals!!

    Adding leather to girly dresses is my favorite! And both your pieces are so great, like I love that dress so much. It’s gorgeous!

    I like it, but I think I’d love it with black sandals to tie the vest back in. What a wonderful opportunity to work with a stylist, especially since, as you said, you have a smaller wardrobe to work with these days!
