Secret Garden

I've been stepping out of my color comfort zone of black and white lately, and trying to wear softer, more feminine tones.  I found this wonderful floral dress at Forever 21 last night and couldn't wait to wear it!   It's definitely a 'spring' piece, but I decided to warm it up with tights, boots, and a touch of fur to make it wearable for now.

Dress, Forever 21.  Boots, vintage.

I finally put one of my favorite vintage bags to use.  It doesn't get much attention because of the limited about of brown in my wardrobe, but it was the perfect complement to tonight's outfit.

Although I absolutely love the print of this dress, the cut really isn't that flattering.  The shape and fabric make it difficult to belt at the waist, so I felt like my figure was lost in floaty florals.  Enter the cropped jacket!

I featured this vintage fur jacket here as well.  Since it hits right at the waist, it creates the same illusion that a belt would.  The solid, light color focuses the attention and breaks up the boxy fit of the dress. 

I added a vintage cameo necklace and vintage lace up boots to complete the look.  

All of the pieces in this outfit cost me less than $25 each!  It's proof that if you have the right shopping skills you can look extra chic for super cheap :)
