Have you ever hopped on a particular trends bandwagon and after the trend died down, had no clue what to do with those items in your closet? I had one of those moments last year with the high-low trend – I was obsessed with those types of dress. As I’m slowly cleaning out my closet, I’m left with a few of these dresses that I’m no longer in love with. In an effort try and re-work the trend before giving up on it, I wore one of my favorite dresses with a pencil skirt and played up the extra fabric in the back. I was inspired by Carrie Bradshaw’s look in season 4.
I wore this outfit the night of the Windy City Bloggers Oscar Party – with some help from Laurie, I was made to look picture perfect. Laurie invited me, Lindsay & Lenka over to help us out with our makeup and hand out a ton of helpful tips & tricks. It was fun trying something new and challenging myself to think outside the box.
