Better Off Lace Up Shift Dress
The Lace Up Trend
To be honest, my first lace up piece was kind of a disaster. You see, after going through two pregnancies, plus breastfeeding for a year with both girls, I’ve actually been pretty self-conscious about showing any skin in that area. Over my Christmas break, I blogged about finding a one stop shop for show stopping dresses. For some reason I felt compelled to try out a front lace up dress. I couldn’t resist just how stunning it was, and just hoped that the lace didn’t run too low. Once I tried it on, I was so happy I took a chance. Just like I hoped, the lace didn’t run low, so I didn’t have to worry about being self-conscious–especially because I could still get away with wearing a supportive bra.
How to Rock the Lace Up Dress
Today’s Tobi dress, the ‘Better Off Lace Up Shift Dress,’ is that perfect date night, or dinner dress if a girl wants to stand out of the crowd a bit. It comes in three colors, a mauve–which is what I have featured here today, but it also comes in classic black, and a beautiful olive green. As far as shoes, you have tons of options. A strappy or even simple heel would really make this dress pop, but lately I can’t get enough of my over the knee tan boots which not only look amazing with almost everything, but they also keep my legs warm in the cold.
Tobi, All About the Glam
Last week I introduced an online retailer by the name of Tobi to my blog. From the moment you click on their site, you’ll see that this brand has glamour written all over them! With each piece, I find something very unique. Like stated on my last Tobi post, their designs take place in the heart of Los Angeles. They take inspiration from the LA city life, and channel them into beautiful and affordable clothing. “We design and develop all of our products and collections out of our headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Our design inspiration is LA itself; the girls, the city, the energy, the attitude.” (Tobi.com).
