Emerald Fit+Flare Dress from Day to Night.

First of all, I apologize about the abundance of the photos by my Christmas tree, so far this month, but it is super cold out and on top of that I have been sick and I have worn a lot of dresses too with Dressember being a challenge I committed to this month. I have had a lot of headaches too, and if all of this wasn't enough, I had a really infected, swollen finger which make me take a trip to the ER yesterday. I am on antibiotics and pain-killers and had to call off from work two days in a row. When it rains, it pours, right?!

At some point this month I wanted to do a 6 Remix, either with the same dress styled 6 ways or 6 different dresses styled with the same accessories. I wasn't able to do such a post but several of my dresses I have worn more than once, some at daytime and at nighttime, like today. So continuing this month, besides this one, there will be another 5 remix posts. Today I have on this Girly Fit+Flare Emerald/Teal Fit+Flare Dress (styled 2 ways), which I recently purchased at Target from their Xhilaration line (I am wearing the Medium since these are junior sizes). I think with the upcoming holiday season this dark green dress would be perfect. Plus the Emerald/Teal Color not only is a great color for Winter but a great all-year-round color.

This dress paired so well with other dark jewel tones in the green and blue family. For the daytime look, I paired it with my Knee-High, Cone-Heel Navy Boots which tie into a bow on the back, my Floral Navy/White/Emerald Cardigan, a pair of Light Green Teardrop-Shaped Earrings and an Olive Green Saddle Crossbody Bag. I added the Bold Crystal Necklace which I think paired perfectly with this dress to make each the day and night look, more festive. Also red lipstick which is perfect for this time of year and I added an extra pop of red with my Red Tuxedo Bow for my hair. This cardigan matches my dress perfectly doesn't it?

The Accessories:
Dangly Light Aqua Earrings w/ Long Oval-Shaped Crystal Stones: Loft (New) (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal, love these), (fancy option, on Sale, my Favorite).
Leaf-Shaped Silver "Flora" Crystal Statement Necklace: Perry Street via Rocksbox (New) (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal, my Favorite), (similar, Splurge, love this).
Olive Green Saddle Crossbody Bag w/ Buckle detail: Merona Collection via Target (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal), (similar, on Sale, my Favorite).

Navy, Knee-High Ruched, Faux Suede Boots w/ Cone Heels: Wet Seal (similar, Steal), (similar, Great Deal, love these), (similar, on Sale, my Favorite).

For the night-time dressy look (dinner, dessert and martinis with 3 of my friends and one co-worker) I wore this same dress with these Bow-Back Blue Velvet Shoes I cannot stop wearing. I kept the same necklace and red bow as the daytime look. But I played on the jewel and silver factor with a Bold Crystal Bracelet, Silver+Plum Crystal Statement Earrings and also a Matchy Silver Beaded Wristlet Clutch. I got compliments from several people on this outfit, especially on my dress, shoes and red lips - which is a signature of mine. I think I like the evening look slightly more, though the daytime look is nice too. The night look says Holiday Dinner/Holiday Party, doesn't it?! What about you, which is the favorite way I styled this Emerald/Teal Dress?!

Silver, Silk Satin, Beaded Seashell-Shaped Wristlet Clutch: Macy's (Old) (similar simple option, Steal), (gorgeous pebble leather option, on Huge Sale, love this), (similar, small Splurge, my Favorite).

  4. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
