UNDER 100- HOW TO ADD SOME EDGE TO AN UBER FEMININE LACE DRESS


Would you believe if I said that this outfit ( except for the bag ) is under a $100???? 
Yes ladies, I own this one- this outfit does total up to under a $100. Well, how??? - keep reading to believe it !

If you remember the dress, last seen here in a more girly-girl avatar, so I didn't want to limit it to wearing it just as is, repurposing it was just what I intended for today's look. 
  • A very uptown chic way of doing that would be by juxtaposing styles- masculine and feminine. A printed bomber jacket is a fun effortless way to add some edge to any feminine look and give some visual-appeal to any plane-jane dress too. 
  • A killer pair of spike heels in a spring-worthy hue would be another way to add that edgy glam to a lace dress. 
  • Textures would be another easy way to take a lace dress up a notch- in my case it's the bag. The quilted pattern on it definitely does the needful. 



dress- Ann Taylor ( short sleeve option )
bomber jacket- Shein, buy same  ( similar, another gorgeous option )
heels- Rachel Roy ( a splurge
all jewelry- c/o Your Bijoux Box 


Now for the fun part : let's talk $$$.

The dress originally was $198. I wasn't willing to shell out $200 just for one dress so I staked it for a while before it was marked down to $75, a weekly special on all dresses. So I headed straight for my nearest Ann Taylor store to grab it before the promotion expired. The SA insisted I get an Ann Taylor credit card to avail further discounts, which I did and ended up paying only $47 for this lacy beauty. Now tell me wasn't that a king of steals ???? So in this case patience and a good credit score paid off.
