I love all the new trends that show some skin, but not too much skin. I feel like it just looks so much sexier when showing skin is not overdone. That is why I am obsessed with open back and shoulder baring looks, and I am so happy that because of this new trend, my favorites have been easy to find. I fell In love when I saw this dress at Lulus.com I wore this dress to a wedding and I really wish I had more places to wear it to! The minute I saw it I knew I had to have it. I love that from the front the sides just look like a simple cut out, but then when you turn around it is more revealing. The split is amazing as well, I mean who doesn’t love a split? Personally I think it is there so that you can show off your shoes. I feel like when we wear long dresses, our shoes get lost underneath the fabric and I don’t know about you but I put a lot of effort into my entire outfit so it is important that every little detail shows. Speaking of shoes, typically I go for a strappy shoe, but this time I wanted to do something different and edgier. I went with these suede Steve Madden bootie style shoes. They are so gorgeous and versatile, I loved the way it looked with this dress but it also looks great with jeans and skirts. So keep an eye out for these two because they will definitely be making more than one appearance on the blog.
