Zara plaid dress (similar here and here), Black long-sleeved tee, Zara shearling and suede jacket (similar here), Coach floral cross body bag (more fashionable here and Spring version here), Madden girl combat boots (similar here), Rayban round sunglasses, Dior Ambitious Matte lipstick
In general, I seem to drift to pretty, whimsical pieces and classic feminine silhouettes. But every now and again I find myself falling in love with more “alternative” pieces. This simple plaid dress from Zara was one of those items.
I also have to talk about the Dior Ambitious Matte lipstick I’ve been wearing everywhere. I am a true Dior addict- all of my makeup is Dior. But I have to admit, some of their lipsticks aren’t as long-wearing as I’d like. Their new matte lipstick line has totally solved this problem! I would highly suggest taking a trip to your local Sephora or Hudson’s Bay to try out this wonderful new line.
I paired this dress with my shearling jacket and Madden Girl combat boots that have become a staple in my winter wardrobe. I’ve worn them before (here), and you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them!
I’ve talked about the frigid cold that is Ottawa many times on this blog. So how does a fashionista stay fashionable in the cold? Layers, of course! I’ve been layering this dress over everything from a simple black tee to frilly bow blouses to chunky knits. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!
