As someone who is, for the most part, anti skater dress, I stand corrected. This adorable Charlotte Russe number was gifted to me by a friend (thanks, Laura!) and I've been waiting for the perfect occasion to wear it for a while. A museum outing just fits perfectly with this dress' vibe, doesn't it? A detail that I forgot to photograph is the massive zipper with red details on the back of the dress, the main element tying the dress to its accessories. I'm pretty bummed about forgetting, but I'll definitely feature this dress in future posts and make sure to share all of its cuteness with the world. 

Style Tip: For a timeless feel, choose one color from your main piece and match it with the accessories. The color scheme of this dress screams winter, but by adding red accessories, I managed to lighten up the entire look. Red is scientifically proven to make people look more attractive, so why not indulge? By choosing red as opposed to neons, this look maintains a classic elegance contrasting the current highlighter outfits popular among the younger crowd. 

As part of our little LACMA endeavor, we visited the Journey of a Dress DVF exhibition. The displays were a girly girl's dream with pink walls and insane prints! Below I've added some drool-worthy display shots. Gosh, I can't stop daydreaming about that sparkly black number and lip printed wrap. To anyone reading this: MY KINGDOM FOR A DVF WRAP DRESS. 

The only downside was very obviously being judged by some guy for my Rue21 Valentino look-alikes. I felt like such a phony, but oh well! Not all of us were born in fluff. 










As per usual, I am insanely grateful that you stopped by! Thank you so much! :)
