outfit post: hot pink dress, black heels, black belt


Inspiration - Jennifer Lawrence

Friday night in Vegas I wore this dress that I recently bought from Loft. I love the vibrant pink color. I dressed it up with black sexy shoes, lace clutch and a belt, accessories that really contrasted, to give it a more nighttime, going-out feel.

But I think this dress is going to be a wonderfully versatile purchase - I could see wearing it with nude heels/cute wedges to a wedding/babyshower/date night or throwing on a jean jacket and flat sandals for a casual look. Yay for fun dresses!

(If you notice the little black mark on the belt on my left side - it's a black hair tie. I cinched the belt to fit my waist but didn't feel like doing the whole loop-di-loop tie thing with the end of the belt. So I improvised and made an impromptu belt loop to keep the extra length from flapping around all night. Not the most amazing solution but functional.)

    1. Another great take on the inspiration! Keep repeating myself but...I like your version better than the inspiration ��! Not crazy about the clutch though. Great posts on your getaway to Vegas. Fun to see what you put together for day/night & from a suitcase. So enjoy your posts. Where do you find inspirations online? I used to love MarieClaire & other magazines but so disappointed in their fashion editorials. Remember "101 Ideas" in Marie Claire? Wish they still did that but I'll be spending less on those & will also have less clutter / fewer magazines at home.

      1. I love magazines too! I think InStyle might be my favorite but MarieClaire & Vogue & the rest are all pretty fun to read.

        Thanks!

        I get most of my inspiration from Pinterest. I have a job where I'm on the computer all day and often on multiple hour conference calls. I have to pay attention but have enough leeway that I can casually scroll images while I listen to the conversation looking for anything that reminds me of clothes I already own. So that's where I grab most of my pictures.

        Although occasionally I will search google images directly if I know I want to wear something specific. This post is a good example - I googled "celebrity hot pink dress black belt" and found the image in this post.

    2. Very cute, I can see how this dress can be very versatile. And I totally do the hairtie-belt loop thing all the time!

    4. Pink + black is one of my favorite combos--like you said, great for going out. I really like that lace clutch too!

    5. The hot pink is AMAZING! The black totally sets it off. You look fantastic!

    6. Great idea with the black hair tie. I do that too! For most of my belts, actually because I am horrible at looping the ends! You could also use those clear rubber band to hold the belt up and if it is long enough, move it more to the side to hide it. :)

      That color pink is really pretty. Would you say the actual color is more vibrant like your picture or a little duller like LOFT's picture? Great outfit.

      1. Thanks!

        I'd say the color is somewhere in between the two. It's pretty bright. The Loft picture looks a little dull. When I walked into the store I immediately thought, 'ohhh fun bright dress!' But it's a little less then my photo. :)
