How to Style an Upscale Dress

Love the dress, but don't know where you'll ever find an occasion to wear it?

For Love & Lemons creates feminine & delicately crafted dresses, that for some, may seem "too dressy" or elegant to wear, for a day that calls for casual attire. For example: When I first put this dress on at home, my boyfriend gave me the look of... but are you really going to wear that now? When, if ever, can you wear your favorite pieces without looking overdressed!?

These flirty dresses can be worn almost anywhere. It all depends on how you style them. A simple way to be a showstopper, at an evening event or dinner, pair with a set of strappy stilettos or your favorite heel. That's the easy part, now how do you dress it down? Meanwhile, making it your own style for daily attire. If your feeling a little too dressy, but can't stand to leave her in the wardrobe, do something about it! Check out how I styled this dress below. It can be worn casual, while still making a fashion statement. 

I personally styled, For Love & Lemons Dotty Midi Dress, with a black long-sleeved mock neck top, sold by Anthropologie. Yes, the turtlenecks are back in style, my friends. I also paired my outfit with, Stuart Weitzman over the knee, HILINE Suede Boots. The accent handbag, Sweet Charity Mini  is designed by Christian Louboutin. My Carnation Earrings, are also available from, For Love & Lemons. You can shop in person, at their pop up shop in Los Angeles, but only for a couple of months.
