So THIS is the dress that I’ve instagrammed and tweeted about – THE leather dress.  Did I mention that I want to wear everyday because I feel like a bad a$$?  Although it’s probably inappropriate for my age, I HAD to bring it home with me.  I feel so rock and roll.  Thank you again Last Call!  {Remember, it’s a love/hate thing.}  It’s easy to take it from dressy to casual.

Alexander Wang racerback leather dress via NMLC // DRESSY // thrifted necklace {similar} // thrifted Givenchy earrings {I like these} // Nordstrom cuffs  // gifted mother-of-pearl clutch // Etsy Oui ring // Prada heels {similar} // Karen Walker sunglasses // CASUAL // Lululemon rehearsal top // thrifted brass necklace {similar} // Repetto booties {different Repetto version} // Bulga bag
To glam it up, I wore gold accessories {my safety net} and leopard print heels.  Casual is easy with this dress too.  For summer, strappy flat sandals and a larger shoulder bag make running errands a cinch.  And for fall, I threw on a sweatshirt and booties +/- tights for warmth!  I literally threw on the top and booties in no time while Mr. S drove us to a new location.  See, every gal needs a leather dress in her wardrobe.  It’s so versatile.  At least, that my rationale.

The Style Rx {and my personal prescription for you}: GET a leather dress!

I’ve been enjoying time with my family in New Jersey.  SO.EXCITED. about the upcoming LuckyFabb Conference!!  Happy Monday and enjoy your week!
