dress the shoes X the pants

I love the design of this vibrant red dress, but I would love it more with a few more inches in length. As I am no longer comfortable wearing mini dresses, I turn them into tunics. The white cropped jeans make the dress more vibrant and add some effortless flare to the full look.

 The leopard belt and heelusions were quite a coincidence that turned out to be a great finishing touch to the outfit. You can never go wrong with a hint of leopard, can you?

    I do the same thing with mini dresses, Bogi. Love the crisp and striking look of red and white. So chic yet sexy. Love how you transformed those gorgeous pumps with the leopard insert. So fun!

    Welcome by later and linkup with me this week. The linkup will be live tonight at 8.00 PM Eastern. Come share your fabulous style with my readers, beautiful!

    This is a technique I do with most of my mini dresses. Love how you belted it at the waist and those leopard pumps!

    I hear ya, I just can’t bring myself to wear mini dresses anymore either. I usually at least pair them with tights if I do wear one. The way you paired this one with white pants looks so polished and gorgeous! I love it! And the belt and heelusions could not be more perfect! And the fish lips photo next to the mermaid is too cute. :)

    Hope you’re having a great week!

    Great way to change up the look of that dress. Must be cool where you are, though. Way to humid and hot here in central Canada to wear that many clothes. Much as I’d love to. Getting very tired of tanks and my meager collection of sleeveless tops:)

      I hear you, Susan! I am not a big fan of tank tops or sleeveless tops! Luckily we do get occasional cool days allowing me to layer a little bit. Hope you are having a great weekend! Bogi

    Swoon worthy stilettos! I just may have to invest in these.

    Such a cute outfit! I love that you turned it into a tunic, I never would have thought of that but it works SO well.
