Shop your own wardrobe – Party Dress!

Posted on: August 12, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

I attended a VERY important event last Saturday night and wanted to share my outfit. Everything was from shopping my own wardrobe (AKA using what I had). I have found similar online for you in case you want to shop this look for yourself!  If you want a load more #Shopyourownwardrobe inspiration, read my previous post about a shopping ban for 2015 HERE.

So how does YummoMummo start putting an outfit together? What goes on in that fashion passion head of hers? Truth be told, what helps me fall asleep at night is co-ordinating outfits in my head. For reals!

I started with THE DRESS. Love this dress. It was gifted to me by a dear friend so I always think of her when I wear it. It’s a navy blue lace dress over a nude slip. I love the color, the femininity, the waistline and the length.

After I have chosen the dress, the centerpiece, it’s time to start to hone in on the finer details. The accessories! I was very bold in my necklace choice by mixing lace and cheetah. When I’m in the mood to be a bit more daring with my necklace, I go for it! I liked it and that’s what matters most! Gold and navy blue always go so great together. The cheetah is surrounded by gold and the gold helps break up (vs putting the cheetah straight on navy lace).  Another suggestion could be to also add a leopard clutch. Fun!

The earrings. Since I had such a bold necklace, I chose a very simple gold hoop. Very classic. Gold hoops are such a staple! (Update: I lost one hoops tearing it up on the dance floor – Boo to that!).

The shoes. These pumps are so comfortable and my best shoe choice when I know I am going to hit the dance floor. They have a wedge heel so this provides a lot of support.

The bracelet. This was gifted by another dear friend so again, it reminds me of her when I wear it. I have some nice friends, hey! And my friends totally get my style!

The nails. My pop of color was this “Electric Red” by Sinful Colors.  For my previous rave about Sinful Colors nail polish, click HERE. The best $1.99 nail polish around town!

I have created a set on Polyvore so you can shop this look yourself. Details below.
