Plato's Closet: Style Remix

Hello! Today is my second week of Style Remix Wednesday. This outfit was chosen because I have worn this dress a bunch of times and did not know what to do with it. Truly it is more so one of my fall pieces because it is easier to layer in the cooler months. But since I am wearing my end of summer and pre-fall items I figured why not do a fall preview. They last time I wore this I wore opaque green tights with brown lace up boots, cardigan, a scarf and a knitted hat. This time around I chose to pair it with a sequined blouse worn beneath the dress with T-strap Mary Jane pumps for a more vintage feel. I feel that when wearing a classic vintage inspired ensemble, less is more. When accessorizing go for the bare minimum. Some rings and things, a small necklace or a head scarf(which I chose not to wear because I wanted to show off my faux beehive). Here are details from the rest of my outfit.

Outfit Details:
Salmon Chevron Rounded Collared Dress: Plato's Closet Greenway
Sequin Collared Blouse: Rue21
Squirrel Necklace: Handmade
T-Strap Mary Jane Pump: Mia Shoes via Plato's Closet Memorial City
Love Punch Belt: Thrifted
Rings and Things: Shasa
All Day Disco Sunnies: ModCloth

I also was lucky enough to plan out my day to capture the best lighting during the magic hour. To be honest my photo shoots with Dan are getting better and better every time we go out to shoot. I am so glad he is learning so quickly. As I am learning so many new things about the wonders of photoshop filters and text within frame. I feel like my work is becoming more professional and for that I am proud of my progress thus far. I can wait to dive in this semester with Illustrator and such. Here are the close up details of my outfit.
