I've had an obsession with cocktail dresses since I first started wearing them. I would buy a dress without an occasion (and still do) when I felt I could not live without it. I never rid of the dresses. This Cynthia Rowley has always been a favorite. I purchased it my senior year of high school from the first boutique I ever came to love, Constance Boutique, in my hometown of Asheville, NC. The owner is a friend and one of the most inspirational people in my life when it comes to fashion. Constance has always had a strong sense of style that is all her own. I look at this outfit, acknowledging it is a little off the beaten path with the layering of the belts and the pattern repeat, and it reminds me of Constance. She always did her own thing, much like my Grandmother. It's not for everybody, but it is for me.
Dress: Cynthia Rowley (so old!), from Constance Boutique, but this one's pretty fun. Denim Jacket: Gap. Shoes: Nine West. Gold Belt: Raina (old), here's one. Circle Belt: Target (old). Clutch: JJ Winters, mine is from Lipp Boutique. Sunglasses: Blinde, but here's a less expensive pair. Earrings: Luv Aj. Cuff: Henri Bendel. Rings: Tiffany, Custom at Diamonds Direct.
I wear my jean jacket with everything...
For the love of a style all your own, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!
