There are times this blog has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. Sometimes it works out well and I am able to incorporate a piece, trend, or type of outfit into my rotation. Sometimes I decide it really isn't my style. Either way, I appreciate that I have found more confidence to try new things instead. No matter if it works out or not, I still learn from it. This gorgeous grey lace dress was one I spotted on Zaful and it's style was a little out of my comfort zone. The high neck and tiered look I wasn't sure would work on me. But how would I know unless I try? Because it was absolutely frigid when we took photos, I opted for dark tights, heels, and a necklace that adds to an overall vintage vibe. What I think would be even better is bare legs, blush heels, blazer and longer earrings for spring. Although this outfit wasn't my favorite, I still think the dress is gorgeous and can't wait to try it again!

  2. Oh love the layers on your dress, what a nice piece! :) I agree and think it will look beautiful with pastels in spring, but it's still good here with the black tights and fun red bag.

    Hope you are having a wonderful week :)

  5. You are absolutely right Laura!! I know people will say "that's not my style" but sometimes I think "our style" is just what we get used to wearing. I love that you stepped out with this dress....and I think it's fabulous!! (I'd wear it too, and I'm usually a sporty girl)

  6. Well, this outfit and this dress is one of my favorites. I am so glad you went for it. The color, details and tiers are beautiful. But your description of the Spring outfit with it, sounds great too!

    I am so glad you decided to be part of my special one-year anniversary for Thursday Moda today. Your blog is one of my favorites and I can always relate to your style. Thank you so much for supporting me and my blog over the last four years or so. Our blogs have grown together and our little girls have grown together during this time too.

    You look gorgeous and of course I had to include you in this special collaboration. Thanks again and enjoy the weekend, my friend.

    <3 Ada.

  7. What a gorgeous dress! I agree that blogging sometimes allows me to step out of my comfort zone with outfits and I love it!

  8. Sometimes it's great to step outside your comfort zone, and it's nice when you can find a piece from one of the inexpensive sites to try it out with. I do love the chiffon dots, but I'm not crazy about the neckline. I would like to see if I'd like it more styled the way you imagined it.

  11. This dress is so cute with the high neckline and ruffles! I hope you share it again styled for the Spring! It definitely is a bold outfit, but I think you really pulled it off great and look adorable in it!

  14. I love these 20s inspired tiered layered dresses. They make you look like a cupcake in the most adorable way. I'm happy you are getting out of your comfort zone and trying new trends. Fashion is all about taking risks. I try to remind myself of that all the time :) lol

  22. Beautiful dress Laura, the fabric looks very much like the "Swiss dot" or plumeti we were commenting on last week. Nicely worn.
