(boots alexander wang, dress h&m;, belt h&m;, clutch ysl)

My current outfit obsession! People often ask me- from interviews, to friends, fans, etc- how important money is to me in what I wear. While I do agree that better quality a lot of the time comes with higher prices, if I like something I don’t care where it’s from (or should I say where it isn’t from). I am absolutely in love with this dress I got at H&M; for 30 dollars. I have no problem mixing a dress like this with a designer clutch and shoes. In fact I visited a showroom the other day full of designer dresses trying to pick something to borrow for my friends engagement party and I couldn’t find anything that liked more than this dress. It slighly reminds me of the McQueen dress Kate Middleton wore to the Bafta event here in LA which I was in love with.
In big stores like H&M; and Forever 21 you really can find great pieces you just have to have a good eye and patience because the problem with those stores is that they are so big you get overwhelmed and pulled in so many different directions.
Another change up was my hair. I opted for a straight side ponytail rather than my usual beach waves because I figured it was more fitting for a chic mid-afternoon/early evening celebration.
Happy friday everyone!! Thank you all so much for the continuous support and sweet words. Means so much to me. Xx

    those a great shoes, i love chunky heels. and its so true, sometimes i really don't mind forever 21 or h&m; because you can find an adorable pieces for so cheap. the quality however is sometimes lacking/: this dress is beautiful though, very whimsical.

    I'm the same way! I went looking for an engagement photo dress EVERYWHERE and came out with a $35 H&M; number that couldn't compare to anything else.

  13. Totally obsessed with your boots! Such a beautiful, classic dress, too.

    i totally agree! some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe are things i got at a thrift store for 5 bucks. i feel sometimes people get sooo brand conscious they miss out on amazing clothes at amazing prices. this dress is absolutely stunning; love the pleats and the black chunky boots you paired it with :)

    i'm looking for a similar dress!

  18. I always like the pairing of a pretty little dress with something a little more edgy like a leather jacket – or in this case – Alexander Wang boots. =)

  39. Such a stylish look and it is great to hear that you aren't one of those fashion bloggers that simply use their blog to showcase how many designer labels they own, instead you have a true love for all beautiful clothes and your personal style is inspiring. It shows that you stay true to your own look and don't try to be something else.

  47. Great dress, really original for H&M; I guess since I don't know it from anywhere! Amazing jewelry to complete the whole thing.

  48. Jaclyn says:

    Love your outfit. That dress looks so pretty and the boots are the perfect tough touch. I've been eying those for so long, think I'll have to get them.

  49. Phoebe says:

    Completely missed out on this dress, it's sold out everywhere. What do you wear underneath it? I remember it being really sheer.

    Beautiful drees!!

  53. Love the mix of that floaty white dress with the kickass boots. The low side pony is gorgeous too. Just wondering if you have ever done a hair tutorial on exactly how you get your smooth beachy waves – I am obsessed and cannot for the life of me get those waves and keep the rest of my hair sleek and smooth. Help a sistah out!!

    merci!

  54. Love the outfit! Edgy and very feminine at the same time! Pure perfection!
