So, I started with the purchase of tights as I had none! ( yes, I know - unbelievable).
Now I own tights in blue, purple, red, black and brown! And trust me I'm adding more to my collection including mustard, orange and ones with crazy patterns. Speaking of tights, I think I'll do a blog post about just that sometime next week
With tights covered, I took a look at the dresses that I own and I'm not "wowed". So I decided to surf the net for some options. In the midst of my search, I received an email about a site called Very - http://www.very.co.uk/ . They carry a versatile collection of dresses - above the knees, maxi, casual, party, etc.
I'm primarily looking for dresses that start off on the casual side but can be dressed up for a night on the town with a few simple tips.
- Add chunky accessories (like unique broaches, a string of pearls, diamonds)
- Go bold with your make-up with red lips or dark lids
- Move from flats to heels or wedges
- Replace dark coloured tights with patterned ones
- Replace your large purse with a clutch
I used this link Very.co.uk’s collection of black dresses to start my search and I took the time to look at all 349 dresses. However, since I live in Canada, I'm unable to purchase any of the dresses that I'm about to showcase:(
But if I did, (cause there's nothing wrong with dreaming), I'd purchase these......
