Subtle Drama

     People have their comfort zones. They have uniforms they reach for daily without a second thought.

     Mine tends to be a button down with a big circle skirt or pencil skirt. The uniform is always printed or colorful. My clumsiness and cheerful disposition never seem fit for dramatic styles with darker, sexy undertones (yes, I said sexy). I was always the 'cute' one.

     This dress is my first foray into 'sexy' and Altuzurra, a brand known for subtle sexiness, was the perfect place to start.

     It's not overtly anything. With a neckline lower than I'm used to and sheer long sleeves, it has a bit of edge while still being modest. It makes me feel sexy without compromising my comfort.

And that's the best, isn't it? :)

Ever find a certain "style" hard to pull off?

  4. Yes, this look definitely ventures outside the realms of "pretty" and "cutesy" and into the boundaries of "allure." I think you did a fantastic job of keeping it still very you, but a slightly dark side of you. :)
