Flapper Gone Casual

When I found this dress, the color screamed at me, and perhaps the recent release of  The Great Gatsby provided the extra push I needed to purchase it, the embellishment & length very much reminded me of a flapper dress. It may seem challenging to incorporate embellishments to your daytime style & actually pulling it off,  however, it's much easier that you think. A great way to accomplish a polished daytime sparkle is to mix the embellished piece with neutral & casual ones. Cognac leather is such a rich hue, yet it gives any outfit a touch of laid-back boho & it was just what this dress needed to become a great summer staple. I also chose a strappy chunky heeled sandals for comfort & versatility.

Al encontrar este vestido el color me llamo mucho la atención, fue el factor que más me atrajo a comprarlo, también tengo que admitir que cuando lo vi se me hizo muy parecido a esos vestidos de los años 20 con sus lentejuelas, bisutería y corte a la rodilla. Tal vez al ver un vestido con detalles un poco más elegantes como la pedrería se te haga un poco difícil entender como usarlo para el día a día, en verdad es muy fácil; Combina prendas como esta con prendas en colores y cortes causales, en este caso yo use accesorios en cuero color cognac el cual le da a cualquier outfit una onda bohemia y más apropiada par un día de verano.
