Lady in Leather

{The original inspiration piece: alice + olivia dress}

Very few people have that ideal body type that can be dressed in any style and pull it off without a hitch. We normal folk have to accept our bodies, embrace them, and dress accordingly. I have short legs. To create the illusion of longer legs, my wardrobe is composed primarily of high-waisted skirts, straight and wide leg pants, high heels, and maxi dresses.

This maxi dress by one of my favorite designers caught my eye a few weeks ago and different takes on the style have been popping up left and right. I love how the soft, flowing skirt is contrasted by the fitted leather bodice, giving the look a bit of edge. This strapless Forever 21 version doesn’t quite hit the nail on the head, but at just under $30, it’s difficult to pass up.
