>LEATHER MAKES EVERYTHING SO COOL

>

I’m the kind of shopper who likes to buy things that can work double or triple duty for my lifestyle. I need to be able to wear a piece of clothing to work, on the weekends, or for evening. So, when I found this BCBG Max Azria dress at the Last Call Studio By Neiman Marcus, I knew I would wear it to work and for drinks after work with just a few changes.
To make this dress work for a round of drinks at happy hour or for dinner on the weekends, I decided to throw on my waterfall leather (actually pleather) jacket for a youthful yet cool look. To punch things up, I went for my bold red suede shoes. I’ve always been a fan of leather being worn with more feminine pieces because it offers such a stylish and slightly bad ass contrast.

 As for this dress, I truly love the feel of this dress. It’s soft and doesn’t feel clingy. I also love the versatility of it, because like I said, I can wear it to work with a blazer or on the weekends with a long cardigan, scarf, and flat boots. I have always been a fan of BCBG since my last year in H.S. I own a few pieces from the line and have always loved the chic style of Max Azria clothes. As I stated in my previous post this dress is a size L and I am a true size 18, so, when shopping it’s helpful and important to not always focus on the number of the tag, but on the cuts and shape of clothes.

If you haven’t already I suggest rocking a leather jacket over your dresses and with your skirts for that added cool factor.

  1. >love the waterfall pleather jacket, it's a nice change from the typical leather jacket everyone wears and those shoes are beautiful. You look amazing as usual!

  2. >You look amazing in this dress. Love the red heels as an accent and the leather jacket..so cool.I'm a true size 18 too and I love BCBG, I just thought that their clothes would not fit me. You proved me wrong; I stand corrected.

  3. >@ Nick- Thanks! I been a fan of BCBG since 1999. Not everything fits a fuller figure, but, I am pleased with the cut and fabric of his dresses and tops. Those seem to always work for me from their line. Let me know if you decide to try it out. Send in pics.
