Dress to Impress

Everyone's social calendar tends to be a little fuller in the summer.  If you've got places to go and want to dress to impress, but haven't a clue what to wear then this blog's for you.  Some occasions call for an outfit to really wow'em. Below, I throw a few clothing curve balls, then give you the dress to knock it out of the park!

If you want to....SHARE IT ON INSTAGRAM

There are cute selfies...and then there's taking a snap worthy of OOTD (that's "outfit of the day" in online speak).  Slip into this eye-catching body-con dress and drape a yellow mesh bomber jacket over your shoulders.  Then strike a nonchalant pose, as if you have no idea how stylish you look.  Instaglam! #nofilterimgorgeousalready

If you want to...WOW THE EX

Nothing like taking the high road and looking fabulous doing it.  You don't want to reconcile, just give them something to think about.  Everything about this dress commands attention- from the crimson color to the deep V-neck and assymetrical hem- yet nothing is overdone or fussy.  Keep it low key with a casual zip-up vest and a simple clutch.

If you want to....HIDE AN EXTRA 5 LB.

Illusion is your friend here.  A sharply tailored blazer or an artfully tied scarf can do more for your shape than a three-day juice cleanse.

If you want to...CHARM THE PARENTS

You've chosen their pride and joy, so they know you've got good taste.  Now show them what a catch you are.  Nervous? Never! Go the more traditional route with a form-fitted bodice and gathered skirt.  Too buttoned-up for the real you? A peekaboo eyelet plus bold heels and accessories keep this from veering into Stepford wife territory.
