Funny story: I picked up this dress at Forever 21 thinking it was simply a beautiful, flowy black dress, perfect for summer. When I tried it on, I was surprised at the slits that ran up both sides of the dress past my hips. I was not sure how I was going wear the garment, but I knew that I had to have it. 

The great thing about this piece is that you can dress it up or down and wear it during any occasion. This look is the first I tried with the dress. Katherine and I were going out to explore my new neighborhood and grab some sushi, so I decided to dress the garment down with a pair of gray acid washed denim shorts with tribal print on the sides. I accessorized with some over sized earrings, a silver cuff, and lace-up black sandals.

The second look I created with this dress, I wore a black pencil skirt underneath and added this belt right under my bust for a sleek and elegant ensemble. 

I love getting the most out of each article of clothing I own, so expect to see the dress featured on the blog quite a bit! I love how the dress looks beautiful and simple from the front, but from the side it has the potential to be a completely different outfit.
