Edge factor.

January 2, 2013

Filed Under: Style

I recently received this darling dress from Tailor and Stylist. I am obsessed with the sweetness of it and I was really excited to try pairing it with more alternative pieces. I have been loving the juxtaposition of girly with edgy and thought this was a perfect opportunity to achieve this look. I also couldn’t pass up the chance to don all black and white and then punch it up with a bold red lip!


Outfit Breakdown:
Jacket: c/o LuLu*s (Same.)
Dress: c/o Tailor and Stylist (Same. *use code sidewalkready10 for 10% off!)
Earrings: Banana Republic (Same. Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Belt: Gap (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Shoes: c/o Shop Sosie (Same.)

Curled in different directions, backcombed the back, and then pulled into a low ponytail. Let short pieces fall free.
