Green Envy: Sack Sheath dress + Iridescent Statement Necklace

 





I wore this dress two weekends ago for my brother in-law's pre wedding party.
I must admit I was a bit nervous about purchasing this Vince Camuto Sack Sheath dress online. Reason for this is simple...the words 'sack' and 'sheath'. Sheath dresses have not always worked out well for me in the past especially with what I call a set of voluptuous thighs :-) I thought to myself ... well certainly a "sack" sheath dress will look terrible... right? Well the green color on this dress drew me in and the price was hard to resist. So I took a gamble and I must say it was worth it. Every now and then I purchase those items that are a big mistake. But this one turned out to be an absolute stunner. Very simple and chic! I thought the best way to show it off was with a statement necklace. I love this iridescent necklace as it allowed me to pair it with any other color of my choosing. In this case I chose gold/bronze with the clutch shoes and vintage bracelet. Yes... I know, I know! it seems I'm a sucker for gold as that's the color I tend to gravitate towards more often. I decided to go with MAC lipstick - Viva Glam Gaga, a perfect way to pull in the pink color.
I was thinking of another way to style this dress and I thought an alternative is to choose this metallic green shoes (listed below) and introducing a new color with the clutch. The styling options are limitless with this dress.
What item have you purchased (outfit or accessories) that was a pleasant surprise when you got it in the mail? I'd love to hear all about it :-)
