Dresses are my go-to for these days. They require the least amount of matching, and are acceptable anywhere. I picked my $6 skater dress and dressed it up with a blingy necklace, and made it workable for the chilly night with some chambray.
-dress from Ross $6
-chambray shirt from Target
-necklace from Rue21 $2
-shoes from Charlotte Russe $5
-makeup is Urban Decay Fishnet and Ransom eyeshadow
You might notice the necklace has a missing piece, but I colored it in with a Sharpie and I don't think it's noticeable unless you're looking that close. Some call me cheap, I call myself practical.
Side note: I love living with a dog again. Dogs make life way more fun and active. That's Abby. She's great.
