if you’re a loyal reader, you know that i am (proudly) a member of the rewardstyle “liketoknow.it” community, where users can shop the looks i post about directly through my own affiliate links. for fall ’17, starting with new york fashion week, a beautiful (ombre) graffiti wall was created, dedicated to the platform, on the lower east side of manhattan. bloggers have been flocking to get snapped near the logo, and it’s so pretty that i couldn’t resist jumping on board!
the wall says “seeing hearts” – because the logo is a heart inside a circle (much like my family’s restaurant, adoro lei, ironically!) — the logo is seen in the bottom right hand corner of 90% of the images i post on instagram, and i am always linking my followers to the pieces i wear – if not something very similar!
since this wall is a reflection of my countless collaborations with brands and small businesses, i opted to wear a star-clad wrap dress from lulu’s that i received as a gift for attending their style studio new york fashion week party. it was a blast, and if i may say so myself, this dress is a pretty cool gift in lieu of a goodie bag. so while this look isn’t technically “#sponsored”, it’s a nod from a big brand that i enjoy, and that i think my followers would enjoy as well.
i don’t wear much black, so when i do, i like to add a pop of color. in this case, i’ve got a coral thing going on. i’m wearing kate spade neon coral stud earrings – a matching coral colorblock satchel (also by kate spade) and some basic coral pumps. this outfit gives off 50’s/60’s vibes – with a little bit of betty boop thrown in. the ruffle on the hem of this dress floats upward as you walk – and it’s pretty low cut – so my fellow busty girls, you may want to do what i did: i put a longline tank dress (like a spandex ‘slip’) underneath the wrap dress. it stayed put and made wearing this dress carefree and easy.
wrap dresses, as also showcased in my “if it ain’t baroque” outfit post, are flattering on almost every figure. they cinch you at the waist, and flow out – but not too much so that you seem bottom heavy. creating an hourglass is the goal when looking for a solid little black dress, and this one really does the trick. and if you’re anything like me – the tiny star print helps me to feel like i’m giving it that bit of pizzazz!

I agree with you! Wrap dresses are flattering on all body types! Quick question though…. I always have to wear some sort of camisole underneath as it looks like you did in this shoot… How do you keep the cami from riding up all over the place under the dress??? Asking for a friend;)
Well this cami dress is VERY spandexy…. it really stays put! I got it in the lingerie section of nordstrom. Investing in better brands will definitely help that problem. Check out Yummie or Spanx!
