During the Spring/Summer Season, there was this one dress that almost everyone seemed to either have or want. I, like the rest, was totally enamored with that specific dress. So, of course, I bought it. But I never took the chance to photograph it because, as we already stated above, everyone had it.

I LOVED IT SO MUCH, that I went back and got it in another color. The dress just looked and fit amazing on me. So why not?? However, I never got a chance to wear it during the Spring/Summer Season.
So, while delving into my closet, I came across it again. Still baring it’s gitionline.com tag. I started thinking quickly, how can I make this cold weather appropriate?? So I tried it on again and fell in love with it all over!
The sleeves already gave me the coverage I needed on my arms for the cold-weather, but I added a leather layer. For extra protection. I chose the peplum styled PU simulated leather jacket from Forever21 to give an exaggerated Oomph around the waist. And then I topped it off with my favorite street find, this AMAZING HAT. I kept the boot really simple but they are calve height.
*Style Notes: I choose the dress with the darker background because it fits into fall a little better for me. And I kept my makeup very warm and neutral to bring an added layer of Fall Realness.
