1 Dress 4 Ways {Part 1: Dressy}


Last week I received this gorgeous green dress from KAS New York. Green is my absolute fave color, and if you follow my blog you know I have an attraction to clothing with great prints, colors, or intricate detail. KAS New York is known for it's amazing prints, bright color, and equisite detailing. This dress is definitely a stand-out piece, and when I first tried it on I knew it not only was going to be a fun little dress to wear for spring and summer, but it was also going to be quite versatile. I challenged myself to style this piece four ways -- two dressy looks and two casual looks. Today is "Part 1: Dressy" and tomorrow you'll see "Part 2: Casual." Also, since KAS New York is a new brand to me, I wanted to introduce ya'll to the amazing designs and the talented designer behind the brand. So, stay tuned for another post this week that will include some of the hottest new styles for Spring 2013 by KAS New York, as well as an interview with the designer, Kirat S. Anand.

For my first dressy look I went the minimal route and paired this green KAS New York dress with a vintage Chanel chain belt (um, would you believe me if I told you it's real and I only paid $2 for it at a Goodwill in Venice, FL?), a simple black clutch, black lace-up heels, and two of my fave gold bracelets (a studded Sorrelli cuff and a vintage tiger bangle gifted from my sweet friend Dree Harper). I didn't add a necklace, because the dress has a high neck and I didn't want a necklace to take away from the beautiful applique detailing.

For my second dressy look I wanted to add a sleek white blazer to up the chic factor. I could have turned this look casual in an instant by adding some flats or a pair of stylish sneakers, but I kept the look dressy with these double ankle strap heels. I took the belt away for this look, so there wouldn't be a distraction from the applique print on the dress, and I added a white vintage bag. This girly leather bow bracelet c/o Oia Jules finished off my look.

So, what do you think about my dressy looks? If my hair was longer, I would have definitely worn a top bun in one of these looks -- that always ups the chic factor. This dress would also look equally fab paired with a black blazer. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see how I styled this dress for my 2 casual looks. Also, check out the KAS New York facebook page for a chance to win a beautiful blue lace dress!
