back in black



Dress: BCBGMaxazria (similar style here); Jacket: Topshop (similar style here); Shoes: Gucci; Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Fred Flare; Jewelry: J. Crew chain necklace, Michael Kors watch

I've been hunting for a great leather bodice dress for sometime now (I blame it on this little number from Chloe Spring 2011) -- and everything I found seemed to be just out of my price comfort zone. Luckily, some of the after Christmas sales worked in my favor as I snagged this BCBGMaxazria dress for over 60% off. Merry Christmas to me, indeed! 

How has your luck been with the sales? Any good finds?

  9. Love this! I think the pleats are also amazing. I was in Orlando with my fam for the sales and the outlets there get super scary! So I didn't go. I just online shopped ha.

  11. I've been having way too much luck with sales! I've been getting so many packages to our front door that my daughter has started calling delivery trucks "mommy's boxes". Whoops.

  16. Oh I'm in love with that dress; the leather look top with the soft pleats on flowing on the bottom. I actually thought it was a top & skirt at first glance. I picked up some nice little bargains in the sale which I just posted earlier today...check them out.x

  18. You look totally lovely. Great combo. I wouldn't have worn a necklace with that neck line but you nailed it with the chunky gold. The coat is amazing but your attention to the details like, shoes, sunglasses and watch are so impressive.
