Just some daytime velvet, courtesy of PurrrLA! This simple, but fierce, little dress made me feel like such the ultimate badass wondering around Downtown LA recently. The dress combined with my intense hanger at the time also made for some sassy, top notch model poses as well, if I do say so myself. Velvety pieces are super fun, but can seem tricky to style sometimes; especially for a more casual outing. I think the trick is to simplify it with your choice of accessories. I personally found pairing it with my equally difficult to style platforms made for a winning combo. Also, Surge made me flip my hair over funky, new look? 😛
This outfit was definitely a little more out of my comfort zone than I generally travel; but I had such a fun time! It completely changed my attitude for the day. It boosted my confidence and I honestly felt like no one could mess with me – ever. I’d just walk all over them in my excessive sneakers! Experiment!!! I challenge you to put together an outfit that goes outside your comfort zone. You might even be able to do it with your existing wardrobe, just by switching up how you wear it. See if it modifies how you carry yourself, or boosts your confidence!
