I wanted to create a look that could be worn to a holiday party, and even though there are no holiday colors in this ensemble the dark tights give the illusion of a winter outfit, and the statement necklace with the black ribbon that matches the back of the dress perfectly, pulls the outfit together.

This dress has been in my closet for quite sometime now, and it makes me sad to think that I don't get to wear it more often, the color is very refreshing, the corset is structured to give a better silhouette, the elastic bands in the back give it an unexpected touch and, believe it or not it has pockets.
I always wondered why people were so obsessed with skirts and pockets, since a was a jeans all the time kind of girl, but when I finally ventured in the shorts, skirts and dress zone I understood. Pockets are a great addition, they simply make wearing a dress like this so much easier.
