Now, lets get into this OOTN. I wore this to a semi formal birthday party last Saturday. Prior to the party, I was stressing about having nothing to wear. I started looking for a new dress, but I truly did not want to purchase anything. I'm so against buying new clothes while trying to lose weight. I don't know about you, but I can't afford to buy things JUST BECAUSE. If I choose to buy clothes/shoes, it's because I absolutely love them. I would not be able to deal if I'd bought something that I love, just for it to be too big four months from now. So you could imagine my glee when I found this LBD and fabulous white coat in the back of my closet. SHE WON!
I bought this dress about three years ago and it was way too small then. I stuck it in the back of my closet and never looked back. This and other cocktail dresses were posted to Shop LS. However, no one has bought anything and I completely forgot about them. Now that I am able to fit those dresses, I will be taking them off of the site and keeping them for myself. Hey, the holidays are here and I can put them joints to good use. Please feel free to take a look at he site. If you see anything you like, jump on it because everything will be coming down very soon.
When wearing formal/semi formal attire, the outerwear is just as important as the ensemble. You can't have on a Marilyn Monroe dress with a lumberjack coat! It just don't work like that y'all! So PLEASE come correct at all times. I have tons of formal outerwear but this coat spoke to me. Everybody knows that the ol' girl loves black and white. But I absolutely love winter white! I am a sucker for white outerwear. I have a leather jacket, blazers and this here peplum coat (that I completely forgot about). It went perfectly with my LBD. And it doesn't hurt that both pieces still had the tags attached to them. Even though I was wearing "new", I'm so glad that I didn't have to buy anything new.
