I would like to thank Sara and the team over at Akira for sending me over this wonderfully versatile body-conscious dress. I finally got the chance to wear it out a couple of days ago. Akira is a Chicago-based online shop that carries everything from Free People to Anna Sui. Right now their website is under construction, but you can still visit them here to see what they are all about! I wanted a reason to wear my slouchy waffle sweater because the day was kind of chilly, and this dress made for the perfect backdrop to build a look upon. These past few days, I have been very keen on my mother’s collection of vintage belts that I am always secretly digging into. Belts are the easiest accessory to incorporate into an outfit because they create shape when otherwise there would be none. I like how the belt allows my sweater to drape in a romantic fashion in all the right places. I was feeling a tad playful, so I threw on my pair of dotted tights. In the end, this turned out to be the feminine look that I was aiming for. Oh, it’s nice to be a girl.
I hope all of you enjoy your weekend. I will be visiting my university friends at UCLA this afternoon and I am so excited to see them because it feels like forever since the last time I have!
