Yesterday I paired a bright maxi dress from Oxygene with a cropped white, one button blazer (an old piece of my wardrobe that I have NO recollection of where its from). The dress and blazer lengthens my legs and makes me look leaner. I had my Aldo 6" wedges underneath as the dress is very long.
I kept the makeup simple because my hair was a little crazy from being done the day before. A natural look can be best with a bright, highly patterened dress.
