This Alive + Olivia silk floral maxi dress is another item I have been stalking on the clearance rack. It took my breath away the first time I saw it. The print always seemed to catch my eye. I hesitated unsure if the bold print was too much. I gathered second opinions on Instagram and you all voted for me to get it (thanks for the support ya’ll!) I really could not help myself when the dress dropped to 75% off. I love Alice + Olivia, but the full-priced items can be a bit expensive. That is why I hunt the clearance racks at Bloomingdale’s for A+O pieces like this one.

It is nice to have an event in mind when I purchase an item. I haven’t found a specific occasion for this dress yet. Although wearing it on my blog is a very special occasion if you ask me! Because I am so tall (5’9″) It is rare I find a maxi dress that I can actually wear with heels.

Tony and I shot this look as more of an editorial than a regular outfit post. This one was a little out of my comfort zone, but I want to take a more artistic aesthetic and really challenge myself to be more creative with my posts. I hope you all enjoy this one and check out my Instagram to see a special video Tony created just for this shoot!

Thank you for reading.

Laura

How would you wear this dress and what do you think of it?

Happy Monday! I am glad Los Angeles is finally starting to cool down a bit and actually feel like fall. It was only a week ago that it was still 80 degrees here. Not that I am complaining. I just had to figure out creative ways to incorporate fall colors into my outfits while keeping cool and stylish. You may recognize this 1.State dress from my previous posts, HERE in Hawaii and HERE dressed up for work. I love finding new and creative ways to wear some of my favorite pieces. Have a great week and thank you for reading!

Purple Midi & Studs

Purple Midi & Studs, Choies purple Midi skirt, black patent Jessica Simpson pumps,  Endless Rose studded crop top Bloomingdales, 100 percent bloomingdales, Los Angeles Fashion Blogger, Top fashion bloggers in Los Angeles, personal style blog, budget style blog,

Do you ever buy an item, convince yourself that you are going to wear it a million times, only to have it sit in your closet? That is how I feel about this purple midi skirt. I have only worn it twice now in the last 6 months (here) when I should have worn much more because it is amazing! Maybe I have worn it so few times because my orchid tulle skirt looks very similar. Either way, I would love to get this skirt in a different color, maybe red or blue (they are only $29.90!), but realize that I need to wear this one more before I try to cram anymore skirts into my closet.

Thank you for reading my blog and happy hump day everyone!

xoxo,
Laura
