Happy weekend everyone! There is something so special about a fall day in Philly. These photos were taken on Spruce Street, which looks absolutely beautiful all year round but especially this time of the year with oranges, reds, and greens surrounding rows and rows of brownstones.
I would describe this dress as modest yet flirtatious. The long sleeves and conservative neckline aren’t exactly risqué but the busy print and short hemline certainly are. I love isolating a single color from a printed dress and matching it to my shoes. This dress is a fun mix of so many different colors but it’s easy to get lost in the print. Part of my fashion philosophy is that you should never let your dress wear you. When you’re wearing your clothing, the items enhance and complement you, therefore making you memorable and stylish. In turn, you’re remembered for who you are and not for what you wore. I think it’s important for your clothing to be a tool you use to express who you are, rather than the other way around in which your dress takes center stage and enters the room 10 minutes before you do.
Anyway, back to the photos below.:) I wore this dress with burgundy stilettos for a true pop of color and an ecru moto jacket to tone it down a bit. Some other ways I styled this moto jacket are found here and here. I happened to find a beautiful house with a red door that served as a nice backdrop for the photos. Isn’t Philadelphia beautiful? How would you have styled this dress? Thanks for reading! xo, Tanya
