just saying: luxury garage sale

i wore: black on black + neon, austin

i needed an all-day to night-out outfit; in my opinion sometimes nothing is as chic (or easy) as accenting a basic black outfit.

i wore: it again

i love this dress – it was perfect for the austin heat, easy to pack, and i can get dressy with it. we had a little date night in austin and i wore it to a fancy mexican dinner.

i last wore it (here) in nyc the night we got engaged, i just styled it a little different and off to dine we went!
