I love these dresses from AA. They practically define versatile. You can wear a shirt over it to make it look like a skirt, you can tuck it in so then it looks like a shirt, you can wear it with tights in the winter and fall, you can dress it up, dress it down. It is the wonder women of dresses, Wonder Dress! And here it is obviously a casual look, yet very stylish. I used lots of accessories, so I used a neutral nail polish. I don't like wearing dark shades in the summer anyways.
This is also a very casual look. I put together very neutral shades, but then had a pop of neon mixed in with the scarf. That is the key piece of the outfit I think. I'm digging neon right now. And of course gladiators.
I loved the Givenchy gladiators. If only I could actually afford these. But to pretend, I would probably wear the to red carpet event or a fancy cocktail party (still pretending, sadly). I had to pick a fairly simple dress, I didn't want to make the it look to "dominatrix." So I went for a simple purple frock. The spiritual necklace is a nice touch to make the look toned down. I would have rather found a deep green clutch, but no luck there. I settled with this cute, gold, sparkly one. And no nail polish, I thought it would be too much.
The inspiration for this outfit was Alexa Chung, the striped shirt and bird necklace. Since the weather is hot I instead went for the shorts. And added some cute gladiator heels, a bag, and coral nail polish. Coral is also another great color to wear for summer.
On another note. Last month on the 13th I did the most amazing thing. The Nylon Summer Music Tour came to Kansas City. And how could I pass up such an opportunity? I mean Be Your Own Pet, Switchs, The Virgins (!), and She Wants Revenge was playing. And let me just say, it was freakin' fantastic! They were all really good. And I have never heard of Be Your Own Pet before. I listened to some of there music before I went so then I would know who all I would be seeing that night. The music was pretty good. But when I saw them live, they just had so much energy. It was phenomenal. And Cory Kennedy was on tour with them, she is blogging about the tour. I remember I was up by the stage dancing along to the Virgins playing (the lead singer is just lovely) and I turn around and she is right behind me with Jeremy Scott! Of course they were together though, their like best friends. The sad thing about all of this is that I had taken pictures of the evening on my phone. And I lost my phone! At least I got a shiny new pink razor, it's at least an upgrade from a old uber crappy phone. Anyways enough of my gushing.
