Wardrobe Wednesday: #IFBcon Wear

Planning my outfit for IFBcon was the most stressful clothing experience I've ever had. I wanted to be trendy and cool, but still remain true to my personal style. After digging through my closet, I made a last minute trip to the mall and picked up this dress from Forever 21. It was the only one in a giant pile - it was practically calling to me. Immediately, the outfit ideas began forming in my head...

I almost felt like I was channeling a 60's vibe with the platforms and square pattern shift dress. I brought out my (way too long - definitely reaches the dress's hem) brown braided belt to incorporate a little brown into the ensemble to match my shoes. I tried to bring a little preppy feeling into the outfit with a borrowed Ralph Lauren blazer. My trusty Kate Spade pearls, a cameo necklace I found at the Brooklyn Flea this summer, and a thin Sequin bangle were all I donned accessory wise - with the pattern and the belt and the blazer I didn't want things to get too busy! All in all, my day was made when a street style photographer asked to take my photo - life goal, accomplished.
