Blue & Silver Vintageortacky for Simply Be Lookbook

blue prom 2Hey Guys & Dolls!

Blue and Silver is such a great combination for holiday parties! It’s a great alternative to red and green, which while festive can look a little “been there, done that”. This dress is interesting because you get arm-coverage for those of you concerned with showing your upper arms, and you could also wear tights like I did in the Holiday Go-Lightly look, or go bare like I did here. Note- this was hella cold, so maybe tights are a better idea. The silhouette the dress creates with the sweetheart neckline and the flared shirt and so flattering, and while it’s short, it has enough weight to lay-down so I didn’t feel exposed- I even walk back up my stairs at the end of the video and you can’t see my bum!

This look reminds me of getting ready for school dances. Maybe it’s because I filmed it in front of my Mom’s house, and she was telling me how to pose. Unfortunately it got dark right after filming, so these photos are with flash. boo! I did grab a cute prom-esque photo for you guys at the end of the post.
