How to Take a Dress from Semi-Casual to a Litle Fancy

Good Day Loves!!!

With the demand on our lives to be in a  million places at once and with the crazy hectic schedule us women sometimes have, we sometimes have to consider a outfit that will transition into several events throughout the day.  Due to time restraints we are sometimes unable to make it back home for a wardrobe change for the next function. Well, have no fear I am going to show you how to switch your style from semi-casual to a little fancy with one simple wardrobe alteration, to assure you look the part!
This is a look that will work well for a work day, church service, brunch/lunch date, client meeting, etc.

Another alternative styling option is pairing a crisp white collar shirt underneath your dress.  
So, you're short on time and you're dressed a little too casual for your next event, no worries. Simply remove the denim top and Voi la! Your ensemble is now fitting for a fancier event such as a wedding, speaking engagement, graduation ceremony, formal dinner/date, etc. with just one simple wardrobe change. 
Not demonstrated in these photos but you could definitely make this look a little more fancy by adding an evening clutch and some beautiful elaborate drop earrings and a bold red lip.

How to Wear a Midi Skirt for Short Women

Greetings To All!!

As most of you know I love a good midi skirt. Some people think a midi skirt/dress is the ultimate no no for us short women and that belief is so far from the truth. Us shorties can rock midi's too and do so flawlessly.
 
 
Here are some tips for wearing midi skirts for the vertically challenged(like myself). 
  1. I typically prefer a more flared/a-line midi on a shorter frame vs. a straight midi, although a straight midi can work too if the entire skirt is fitted(i.e. a pencil skirt).
  2. Throw on a pair of sky high heels. It adds height to your frame, adding more proportion to your bottom half.
  3. Pair it with nude heels. Nude heels paired with any garment elongates the legs and gives the illusion of a longer silhouette.
 

  1. Pay close attention to the length. Anything below the upper to mid calf has the potential to make you look stumpy and shorter than you are. 
  2. The obvious tip is to have the skirt hemmed to get the desired length for your frame.
  3. Pair it with a fitted top to slim and elongate the torso and provide some balance to the fuller bottom.
  4. A high-waisted midi is also a good option as it elongates the lower half of your body.
