Fab Found: Lady Like

I was shopping at Marshalls earlier this week (shocking, I know) and couldn’t help but notice all of the lady-like selections! Big bows, pointy pumps, fit-and-flare frocks, lovely lace accents, you name it.

When I found this zebra dress with a bow at the waist, you better believe I did a little happy dance. When I found it in my size, there was no question that it was coming home with me! It fits like a glove and I know it will be in my closet for the long haul. Work, brunches, bridal and baby showers, Easter*, and the list goes on.

When you have a great dress, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in the same style routine. We all do it. You have a dress that you know looks great with a certain jacket and a certain pair of pumps… And you reach for the same, safe combo every time you wear the dress. I feel like this black and white dress is a blank canvas that can be styled in numerous ways! I can easily remove the cardigan, add a different colored cardigan or blazer, layer with tights, layer with a turtleneck or button-front shirt, wear an espadrille sandal, etc. I kind of sound like a broken record.. Another versatile dress from Marshalls that will work for almost any occasion!

*If you are still looking for a dress for Sunday, I highly suggest you go take a look at Marshalls!

    Love it.

    Do you take your photos in the city before the streets get busy? I notice there are never many people around! LOL Sorry, I’m from Westchester and I know how crazy the city streets can get.

      Ha yes, it can be very challenging to find a spot at times! Personally, I think a lot of people in the background is distracting in photos so I like to find places where people are scarce. (Easier said than done!) Also, the cropping tool in my photo editor is a life saver. 🙂

    Love that the bow is in the front of this dress (instead of the back) and that even though the shape is ladylike, the print is more modern. You look gorgeous 🙂

    SO very pretty!!! Love your look & see multipme options in future Have always loved black & white & was huge for my wardrobe mid way thru last decade…glad it’s back. Love the dress & placement of bow…very flattering! Think I might need to swing by our Marshall’s in Potomac Yards. If I stay focused on one section, I can handle it… usually feel very overwelmed by the volume. Thanks for the tip! 🙂
