The Power of a B&W Striped Maxi

Not sure what to wear? Put on a black & white striped maxi dress.
Simple & easy, yet it still makes a HUGE statement.
Not to mention that black & white is a huge trend for this spring and summer, and will be sticking around for fall. (Though this color combo will always be a classic.)

Sergio Rossi Inpsired

I die.
A couple weeks ago I was browsing my regular online shopping sites and came across a pair of shoes that I absolutely loved. (Surprise, surprise)
So today, I spotted these Sergio Rossi heels on Damsel in Dior's wish list.
I knew right away I had to post this.
Get the look:
Now, I know these aren't the exact same as the Sergio Rossi's...but for 31 bucks and some change?!
Not to mention, these knockoffs will give you a pop of fun color.
I might as well rename this blog to something about shoes. That seems to be pretty much all I post about, huh?! But, who doesn't love shoes?
Sorry for this....
I promise-more outfit posts are coming soon!
There are a lot of new and exciting things going on in my life right now, and I also just finished my semester yesterday. Thank the good Lord!
So with that said, please stay tuned and keep coming back!
Thanks for reading!
