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?

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?!
