Thinking of holiday parties and extravaganzas put me in the mood to style another dressy outfit. This one consists of a silk shift dress, which is definitely an essential piece to have in your wardrobe. I kept it simple, but the possibilities for styling are endless. Accessorizing the look with Chanel cuffs and Chanel earrings amped up the sparkle and shine. The oil slick stiletto sandals were the finishing touch for this ensemble.

We took these photos on a freakishly warm day here in Denver. I wish the weather was still this great, but it sure beats Fargo weather. I am wearing this cool chain tank by Alice + Olivia that I snagged in Shopbop's 70% off section. The chain detailing can be cold against your skin, but I like it nonetheless. I wore these McQ leather shorts again. I am building quite the collection of leather shorts much to my boyfriend's amusement. This pair is the most high waisted of the bunch and the shortest. Last but not least, I snagged these Alaia cutout gray suede wedges during the Outnet's Alaia pop-up sale. Somehow they always have my size on sale in shoes I want. I love these wedges, but my boyfriend did not really like them until he photographed them. Now he thinks they are pretty cool. He wasn't sure about the 'notch' or cutout as I call it. It looks like a dog took a bite out of them already!

I snagged these McQ leather shorts off theOutnet's UK site just so I could get them in my correct size. Sometimes the same stuff pops up on the US and UK sites, but in different sizes so it is smart to check both. I keep getting more leather shorts with different details, but they are all I want to wear right now. This Alexander Wang pullover is nice and warm for fall nights and I like the different take on the nautical trend. I have two pairs of these Jean-Michel Cazabat booties because they are very comfortable to walk in and this snakeskin pair happened to pop up on Gilt. My other pair is in suede and more of a stone color, while these are a really dark gray, almost blue color. The best tights I have ever found are from Express in the mall. I go through a lot of tights, but I still have the same pair I got from Express and I have worn them a million times and never gotten a hole or snag in them.
