Not going to lie, I still don’t know how I feel about this dress.

When I first saw this dress online, I thought it was so perfect. Yeah…for a girl that’s probably close to 6 feet tall. For whatever reason, I decided to hold onto it, ya know give it another try. I really love a good paisley print, especially for fall. This colorful print caught my eye with the deep burgundy color (which has really been the “it” color the past few fall seasons).

Also, have you noticed the new piece I’ve been wearing? Trust me, you’re going to see this choker again…and again and again. When the whole choker trend became a thing, I was reluctant to try (I was also nervous to try this trend) it out. When I went to the Shopstyle Social House during NYFW, I headed to the Baublebar table and there was no shortage of chokers. I picked up this micro choker for my first time trying the trend and now I want SO. MANY. MORE. But seriously eyeing this one.

But hey, isn’t this is what having a fashion blog is all about? Trying out new trends….and banking on YOU to tell me if it works or not. (Right?)

    Actually love that Choker! I’m really not feeling the 90s black choker trend coming back, but with the gold it actually looks really fun and fresh!

      Yeah, I can’t get on board with the straight up 90s chokers coming back BUT I’m glad I tested the waters with this micro one! Xx

    Love this dress and print…looks great on you! I’m on the shorter side and used to feel like I couldn’t pull off something so long, but now I just go with it. What counts is that you feel good in it 😉

    I honestly think the dress looks better on you than it did the model on the website. Love it!
