STYLE | LBD (little blue dress)

By now, we all have a little black dress in our wardrobe, so I wanted to mix up my basics with a little blue dress that I could wear to many different occasions. I feel like midnight blue is a versatile as black, but can make you stand out in a room. The sleek silhouette of this look makes it perfect for a dressier event like a wedding, but the simplicity of the solid color and shape allow you to wear it to dinner with your girlfriends without looking over-dressed.

I kept this look simple to bring the attention to the dress. My only accessory is a cage bracelet that I designed. The bold lines on that make a statement without having to wear any other jewelry. I love how comfortable the leather straps make the bracelet. I initially designed it as a statement piece that I would only wear periodically, but it’s so easy to wear that I find myself in it almost everyday! The leather is mixed with laser cut wood and an inlay of brass.

This slits on this dress give it a lot of movement, even when standing still. I feel like they also keep the look from feeling too formal. Because it’s such a dark color, the slits break up the solid color with a flash of leg and make the overall look lighter and more fun.

I can imagine walking through a room and turning heads with the way this dress clings to the body and flows as you move.

I wore it with my usual black booties to toughen it up a little. They pair well with the black leather cage bracelet and make it so easy to stand in all night. I would definitely be able to dance the night away in this look!

OUTFIT | black tie-front skirt

It’s an incredibly gorgeous weekend here in Flagstaff. I’m stuck inside the store for the day, but so thankful that we have huge front windows. We can see the mountains from the front of our shop and I love watching them change throughout the day.

This black tie-front skirt that I’m wearing is perfect for an active day at work. It has some stretch, so it is so comfortable. I love that it feels casual enough for day with this striped tank, but I could definitely wear it out for dinner tonight with the booties.

I’m loving this necklace from Eisentraut Jewelry. It’s from their Mount Alice jewelry collection, named after a peak along the Continental Divide. The brass pendant has a piece of reclaimed Colorado pine inlayed into it and is a beautiful combination of metal and wood.

These booties work well for when I need to be on my feet for awhile. I did stand allllll day in them two days ago and could not wait to go home and take them off, but for the most part they are easy enough to wear for 5-6 hours straight. Here are a few booties that are similar. I tried to find pairs at a variety of price points, and I think the Modcloth pair is actually the best match to the booties I’m wearing – and is only $79.99!

The hat is by Lack of Color, a brand we just got in to the store this week! I discovered them because of their lookbook from this past Spring/Summer. I loved the photography and desaturated colors throughout the images. At the time, I had no idea that I would be opening this boutique. I am so excited to be able to bring them in and support their brand! I’ll have these available soon on the website, and they’re already available in our store in Flagstaff.
