i recently brought home this dress from melanie renee.ย  i love this dress.ย  i mean, i seriously fell in love with it.ย  i met melanie at a local show and was so impressed with her craft.ย  at $148 it’s just a bit more than i would usually pay, but, i’m pretty sure i can justify the cost (hehe).ย  it’s a versatile dress so i put together two outfits.ย  i’ll be wearing this beauty to more than one holiday gathering.

the first way…

this is exactly how i thought of the dress when i first saw it.ย  the perfect brown leather boots and layered with a sweater.ย  the scarf and silk flower dress it up a bit more.

this outfit is so comfortable.ย  it really feels like ‘me’.ย  love it.

i’ve been wearing these boots pretty much every day.ย  this outfit is casual and fun enough for lunch with girlfriends, but i’d also wear it to a casual holiday party.

okay, the second way.ย  i had to think outside of my box for this outfit, but i ended up loving it.

i added grey tights and t-strap mary janes.ย  over the top a black cardigan and deep red scarf.ย  i thought the red in the scarf made the whole outfit feel more ‘holiday’.ย  i think this version is a bit more dressed up.

this outfit is so comfortable, too.ย  and tights really flatter the dress.

which outfit do you like better? aqua with boots or red scarf with t-straps?
