HOW TO WEAR A COCKTAIL PARTY DRESS – PART 1

HOW TO WEAR A COCKTAIL PARTY DRESS – PART 1

Hello everyone! Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? I’m so happy now that the weather is nicer! For real, it brings me joy even though I’m not at my finest moment right now. I started playing tennis again this past week and it’s been amazing to get back to the court, and most important, to share this passion of mine with my love.

Anyways… Wedding season is around the corner and I wanted to share with you this super cute dress designed by Betsey Johnson that I got on sale at Saks 5th Off. I love weddings and to buy cute cocktail dresses, but they always end up in the back of your closet because it’s hard to wear a dress of this kind on a day to day basis. So, since this blog is about how to recicle what you already have in your closet and wear different pieces in many different ways so you can take the most out of every single item you own (Duhhhh… Ways of Style), I decided to create a couple of posts with ideas on how to style a cocktail party dress.

So, for today I’m styling the dress in the traditional way. With sandals, a side ponytail, a bold lipstick and pearls.

What do you think?

Come back on Wednesday because I’m sharing a look with this same dress that you can wear for the office! Yes, the office! So stay tuned and see you back in a couple days!

Have a beautiful week ahead and thank you so much for stopping by!

XO,

Hola! Como estan? Como estuvo su fin de semana?

Yo super feliz porque el clima ha mejorado muchísimo y eso de verdad me ayuda mucho ahorita que no estoy en mi mejor momento. La semana pasada empece a jugar tenis de nuevo, después de 14 años y eso me hace muy muy feliz! Especialmente porque juego con mi chico.

Bueno, como ya saben la temporada de bodas esta por empezar y ya seguro que tienen varios vestidos en su shopping cart y se que a veces es frustrante porque gastamos dinero en cosas que jamas volvemos a utilizar y se quedan agarrando polvo allí en el closet. Quiero que sepan que no están solas, y por eso decidí crear un post al respecto.

Este vestido es de Sak’s 5th Off, diseñado por Betsey Johnson y solo me costo $69 (link aquí) y para hoy lo estoy usando de  la manera tradicional. Con una cola de medio lado, perlas, un labial colorido y sandalias.

Que piensan?

No dejen de visitar el blog el miércoles, para que vean como pueden usar el mismo vestido para ir a la oficina! Si, a la oficina!

Bueno mi gente, un beso grande y mil gracias por visitar el blog!

XO,

    Hello my friend. I told you earlier that you are the spring queen, you truly are. This dress is so cute and the cutout at the back makes it even more adorable. I love your heels as well! You matched everything to perfection. I’m so glad your back to pursuing tennis again. What a fabulous passion! Keep it up my friend! Rooting for you always.
    Love,
    Dom

    I’m glad you picked two “old ” things up. First of all, it must be great to be back on the courts playing tennis, especially if you’re doing it with your partner and second of all, as your (and my) closet is full of beautiful pieces already, why not recycle them for another event. This cocktail dress is absolutely adorable and totally gets to me!

    Que gusto que vas a iniciar con el tenis de nuevo, es uno de mis deportes favoritos. Yo tambien jugaba mucho, pero por circunstancias lo fui dejando por otros deportes. Como bien dicen: ” Lo que bien se aprende nunca se olvida”
    Hablando de tu look, dejame decirte que el vestido esta super lindo, me encanta el detalle en la espalda que lo hace muy femenino y original, perfecto para lucir hermosa en cualquier boda o evento.
