One Dress, Two Ways || The Skater

I'm totally in love with this dress! It's the Skater dress in Shauna Miller's Penny Chic line (each one is only $20!). I love the fit and flare shape, and the lace cap sleeves make it extra special in my book. The dress is soft, wrinke-free, and fits very well.

I wanted to dress it down a little, so I paired with with a red cardigan, cross-body bag, side braid, and leopard print flats with a red bow. Making this dress casual was a bit of a challenge because it's black and knee-length (at least for a shorty like me). I think if it was a bright color it would be easier to wear casually, but of course a LBD (little black dress) is perfect for every occasion!

This dress is already pretty fancy, so it was easy to spruce it up with a chunky necklace, a navy blazer for a professional setting, wavy hair, sequin clutch, and two-tone heels. I also put on my favorite Revlon berry stain.

I love these satin red and fuschia ShoeMint pumps, but the heel is 4 inches high, so they're a bit tall for me. I'm going to pretend that if I keep walking in them one day I'll get better at it (or at least get used to it).

If you're wondering, I wasn't asked to do this post. I just love this dress!
