Last Friday I stopped Topshop during my lunch break. The original plan was to get a party dress for an event I had planned to go to that night, but unfortunately I didn’t find any that fit the bill. Of course, it being Topshop, there was no way I had a strong enough will to leave empty handed. No matter how much I told myself to stay the course and look only for formal dresses, my eyes kept wandering and found other goodies in the store to try on, like this gorgeous cut-out mid bodycon dress. I love the simplicity of the dress, which will make it easy to layer and mix and match with other pieces I already own. The addition of the cutout to the dress gives it the perfect amount of interest that it can hold up on its own.
I must admit, when I first got the dress I felt pretty foolish. Not only did I get distracted and bought something I don’t need, I didn’t think I would be able to wear the dress for at least another month. Last week was still considerably cold in NYC, and it even snowed one of the days. Since I’m short, I cant really wear tights with this dress because it will “peek” through the cutouts.
As it turns out I got it just at the perfect time since the weather turned warmer on the weekend, giving me a chance to wear the dress to brunch sans tights. I just love when things work out like that.
Outfit Combo: cut-out mid bodycon dress from Topshop, boots and jacket from Zara.
