the off-shoulder bodycon dress

if you're not doing something that scares you everyday, you're not doing it right.

#word. this is the tightest dress i own. yikes.!! if you follow this blog, you already know that i rarely/never wear tight clothes. however, i just can't get enough of all the off-shoulder looks so i bought this dress knowing it was going to be out of my comfort zone. the thought was also, 'this would be a fun, flirty, won't-totally-freeze NYE outfit without all the sequins/feathers/fringe etc...' (ok, confession -- it's because i don't own anything sequin/feather/fringe... LOL. i'm so afraid the sequins are going to fall off by the hundreds knowing my luck). bodycons can be worn in a classy/elegant way. you just need to opt for longer lengths. i kept it simple with nude heels to help elongate my short legs since the dress falls at an awkward length on my 5' 2" shorty-self. the rest of the look is pretty simple since i felt the dress already made quite the statement. and finally, my Chanel boy WOC debuts. she's a beauty.

talk about a feel good song! heard it at barre class (been trying it out lately, it's awesome) and it makes me so happy killin' it at the barre to this jam. #cantstopwontstop
