This dress is so flattering – the beautiful lines, the banded waist, and form-fitting panels are wonderful for any size or shape body. The black pulls in the hips and waist while the cream gives an illusion of curves without being too revealing. I love this dress for day or night. The blue cardigan is from Wal-Mart (what!) and is a beautiful material and cut for $15. For work, I also like adding in bright accessories with the cardigan just to keep the look fun and fresh. For a date night, I absolutely love the dramatic look of the earrings, clutch, and black shawl. I actually received these chandelier earrings for Christmas and they have a very subtle elegance about them that are quite unique; yet, they can actually be worn with quite a lot. The shoes can be worn with either look, and the heel is short enough that it wouldn’t kill your feet at work yet tall enough to look elegant at night. This outfit simply makes me happy. What about you? Happy Monday!
