Michelle Barstad, from the St. Albert Leader, brightened our boutique yesterday with her infectious energy. The beautiful sunny weather had her gravitating towards two beautiful dresses, so we decided to soak up the sun and style her to match the incredible burst of sunshine we've seen lately. Buzz kill: nights will get chillier in October, but don't fret - both dresses can easily transition to fall by adding tights and a cardigan or cropped jacket!
Outfit #1 | Comfortably Classy
Michelle’s first look is elegant, yet unpretentious. The dress, by Angel Eye, is made with ultra soft jersey cotton using contrasting black and berry panels in asymmetrical patterns. We love it because the colour contrast highlights her waistline nicely, but it has stretch, so its super comfortable. To complete the look we kept it classic with pumps by Nine West and a Deux Lux wristlet clutch and a gorgeous Michael Kors watch. This look is great for work or an evening event!
- Angel Eye dress $82
- Michael Kors watch $300
- Nine West “Danee” pump $120
- Deux Lux Atlantis wristlet clutch (on sale!) $57.00
Outfit # 2 | Rose Walk
Her second look is a classic, a line silhouette dress with a bold graphic floral print. Note how the playful open back is designed with a higher neckline in front to keep it balanced. We selected the nude pumps to elongate her beautiful legs and keep the attention on her confident smile, and finished it with a sequinned clutch and necklace that sits perfectly at the collarbone to frame her face.
To adapt this look, try pairing the dress with black tights, ankle boots and a leather jacket.
- Angel Eyes “Ellie” Flower dress $82
