Thursday Moda #15 and Black Eyelet Dress from Day to Night.

Welcome to week 15 of Thursday Moda!

Today I have on the last of the Lace/Crochet/Eyelet Dresses I have been wearing the first week of June. One week's worth of outfits means 7 Dresses, so far I have shown you 5 dresses and today is the 6th one but I styled it two ways from Day to Night. I seriously think I saved the best dress for last. The day look is paired with White Leather Sneakers and the night look is paired with Black Leather Ankle-Strap D'Orsay Pumps. It is crazy how a pair of shoes (not even counting the other accessories) can totally change the look of a dress. This Black Eyelet Dress is another new dress from Target, it's from their "Who What Wear" line which is my favorite designer collaboration they have had. This might be my favorite dress I have purchased from Target this year and possibly my most favorite LBD I own and that's saying a lot since I own about 10 LBDs at least.

Like I said the daytime look is paired with Crisp White Sneakers. And yes they look like this Adidas pair but these are not Stan Smiths. I don't even know the brand but they are from Target and the top part on the back is bronze metallic. Not only are they pretty and comfortable, they are very stylish. I added a stack full of bracelets to this look and dressed it up with a White+Silver Clutch and Pearls: white pearl cluster earrings and green metallic pearl necklace with a diamond-shaped pendant like a vintage-looking brooch. To tell you the truth I wore this outfit to work last Friday. We are allowed to wear sneakers most Fridays but not paired with jeans. We can wear jeans any Friday, though. Luckily, I work in a fashion-forward, modern office. But to tell you the truth this Outfit would be perfect during Summer for a put-together mom on the go so 'Mom Wear' and the night version with the Black Sexy Pumps would be great for work (so 'Work Wear' - a remix series I do on my blog every now and then which I call "Mom Wear to Work Wear") since most jobs require you to dress up and look professional.

For the night look, some Sexy Black D'Orsay Pumps go so well with the LBD for a monochromatic effect. The wide ankle strap and lucite heels make the pumps edgy and fun. Instead of an arm-full of bracelets I opted for a cuff on each hand and kept all the fun rings as the daytime look. The dress is also paired with a Bold Coral and Crystal Necklace by Perry Street and some Stunning White Crushed Pearl Earrings by Kendra Scott. The earrings, necklace and gold cuff are the three latest pieces from my most recent Rockbox. So, do you like this Fun, Bold and very Feminine Eyelet LBD. The classic style of it and flowey midi skirt are my favorite details. Which look do you prefer better: the day athleisure-inspired look or the night sexy cocktail party-inspired look?

Thank you for the compliments on last week's Thursday Moda post where Vivian and I styled Little White Dresses which you all seemed to love. There were 110 perfect entries and last week more so than in the previous weeks, I loved sooo many outfits and had a hard time coming up with the 4 favorites from today. That is why some of my favorite outfits made it into a bonus post from yesterday. I featured 10 of you ladies who have posted lace/crochet looks I loved, in the past three linkups. One thing I noticed about the chosen favorites for today - besides the pretty outfits - are the ladies' shoes. Every pair rocks and needs to be mine!! Also, all the outdoor locations of each photo-shoot are simply gorgeous!

This week's featured blogger is NANCY from Fancy Nancista who linked up this modern-day bold office look. She colorblocked Ketchup and Mustard (like I like to call red and yellow when paired together) to perfection, matching her lace cropped top to her little blazer. And she is wearing lace too - the pattern of the week for me. She chose the perfect Nude Fringe Stilettos (which I also own in Red and love). Nancy is new to my linkup as of the last 3 weeks or so. She is also new to my reading blog list but I am so glad I found her blog, because this gorgeous lady is always dressed to the nines. The name "fancy" suits her so well. She is also colorful, girly and bold - three things I love when it comes to fashion. Please stop by her amazing blog, today and follow her!

Rachel is more than just 'Best Dressed Charlestown'. This mom and personal stylist is always super chic and usually the best dressed.
Lindsay Ava showed me that 'Black in Summer' can still be worn in big doses and in a super chic way.
Kileen is wearing 'The Dress for Every Summer Occasion' which is great because I have been eyeing this pastel watercolor kerchief-hem dress, big time.


P.S. Linking up with Adri + Jessica, Alice, Ana Luiza with Michelle, Annie, Brooke with Erica, Carrie with Jill, Christie, Claire, Dawn, Grace, Elle with Jacqueline, Heather, Jalynn,
Also linking with the ladies of The Blended Blog  for "Create 28".
