SPECIAL OCCASION DRESS CASUAL STYLE & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Wearing a special occasion dress casual style

Have you got a lot of special occasions? Events where you can wear a special occasion dress? Not me! So when I was approached by JJ’s House to write a post about their dresses I had to think about it. Because they sell wedding and special occasion dresses. I never wear a special occasion dress, and it doesn’t feel good to appear on my blog in something I would never wear in real life. What you see is what you get, with me! But…., yeah you saw that one coming, I checked their site and saw that they also had Fashion dresses. And I fell in love with this one immediatly, I showed you also on the wishlist. When I was still working, I worked in a women’s fashion store where we sold a lot of elegant dresses, we always showed how to wear a dress for a party and how to wear it in a casual way. That made a lot of women buy a dress, because otherwise they saw it as a one wear dress. I want to show you today this dress in an elegant and in a casual way!

*This is a sponsored post, but I only show what I like, words and opinions are my own!

Special occasion dress two ways

The first look is the special occasion look. I am wearing my favorite heels, the leopard print sandals. And a silk grey jacket. Perfect for a special event. Simple accesories and check the clutch! Fabulous!special occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dresses

For the second look I changed the sandals in over the knee boots in dark brown and a denim jacket. A big brown bag and some statement accesories. This is how I love to wear this fantastic dress, I would also love to wear it with a long cardigan and sneakers(although I hardly wear sneakers, but you never know!)special occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dresses

I would like to emphasize what a fantasic company JJ’s House is. And this has nothing to do with the fact they gifted me the dress and the clutch. Firstly, they advised me to take a smaller size, they found that the size I ordered was to big. The dress came into a beautiful printed box in a protective bag. The size is perfect! The quality is amazing and I am so in love with that little bag! I would really advise you, especially if you need a dress for a special occasion, to check this site.

DARK RED CARDIGAN DARK BLUE DRESS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

My somewhat unsuccessful dark red dark blue outfit.

Yes, when I received these boots, I actually had a very nice outfit in mind. The same as this one but different! I will tell you later. And now you will think: but if this is not a successful outfit than why showing it? Well, because I am not a stylist, not a fashion designer, not a model. I will have to do with the skills I’ve got. So when I show an outfit that isn’t quite what I had in mind, so be it. We can learn from our misstakes and from each other isn’t that so? So have I learned this past year to adorn myself with more accesories. Ad a colored belt, a necklace, a ring or some other colored pieces. And the same goes for colors and prints. I never really wore prints, now I still don’t wear them that often, but I wont get it out of the way. While I am writing this, Teun is very loud snorring. It’s a bit annoying! Ah, dear old cat! I also use a lot more color and it’s just a little more enjoyable. Of course I still love all black, nothing as stylish as that!

So why is this dark red dark blue outfit unsuccessful?

Well firstly I forgot to wear the scarf that I now photographed seperately. I knew beforehand that the scarf would fit perfectly with the dress. And when I had put on this outfit I thought, I miss something! I tried on several belts, but did not like that. The boots I had worn once for the size…for a minute. I did five steps when I had put on this outfit and…..the zipper broke! F.ck! Sorry, but I had so many nice outfits in mind with these boots and cardigan. Nevertheless we took the pictures, you can see it’s broken now you know it. And afterwards I threw them in the container! And ofcourse when I changed clothes later, I remembered the scarf. Well well well, what a succes. So forgive me for this not so succesful outfit, it’s also a part of life, but I hope you will in any case love the colors! What I was pointing is snow. Snow in the Netherlands! Later we got a lot more!
