Remember when I told you guys that I was all about adding neutral ivory pieces to my wardrobe.  Well, that statement still holds true.  Just like everyone needs a LBD (Little Black Dress) in their wardrobe, I’m going to be so bold to state that you need a LID (Little Ivory Dress) in your wardrobe as well.  This one I found was from Kintage, and I’ve styled it up in two ways.

Dress c/o Kintage | Shoes: Seychelles from Modcloth | Necklace: Petitor | Earrings c/o Jac & Elsie | Bracelet: From Arm Party swap partner, Underscore Bethany

For the above outfit, I decided to go with more of a Summer look for the outfit.  I used browns throughout the outfit to tie everything together and added pops of color in my bracelets and shoes.  You’ll see more close ups of the gorgeous colorful bracelets I am wearing in tomorrow’s post, but for now, can we stop for a second to talk about my shoes?  They are Seychelles and I am in love and I used my Modcloth gift certificate that I won from Fashion Space to purchase them.  So free teal shoes that are THIS gorgeous, how lucky am I?

Dress c/o Kintage | Cardigan: Maurice’s | Shoes: Blowfish | Necklace: Red Velvet | Bracelet: From Arm Party swap partner, Underscore Bethany

For the second look, I tried to give it more of a Fall twist to it.  I added in a cardigan and boots to give this a more grungy and not as feminine look.  I still stayed in the earth tone family and used the flaps of my boots to give the outfit a bit of pattern and color.

    I love how you styled the dress! A white/ivory/cream colored dress is always a staple to have. :)

    I’d be too afraid of an ivory dress for fear of stains ;). Like both your ways of styling! I’ll take my cues from you!
