OutFIGHT of the Day: how to wear a beach dress in the city
Last week, right in the middle of a cold front, I was invited to a dinner party to celebrate the Pink October edition of Lounge magazine. It was going to be a laid back night with some fun girls, so I decided that a dress was the perfect fit for the occasion. Except I’ve been feeling very dress-deprived lately, and when I realized all my options were exhausted I had a brilliant ideia: why not wear a beach dress, one of those we put on over a bikini, smack in the middle of the city? A challenge, sure, but I love challenges and that’s what the OutFIGHT of the Day is all about after all!
To get the idea going I chose a crochet dress from Galeria do Bikini. It’s the perfect choice because even though it’s made of totally see-through crochet, it comes with a black slip, so I could totally pull it off without flashing my boobies. LOL.
To get a better idea of how the dress would look with an urban feel I decided to go straight for some heels. I put on my strappy gold sandals from Animale and loved it. Obsessed.
And since this was not your average Brazilian cold front (temperatures actually hit 65! LOL), I decided to bring out my faux fur vest from Bebe and get two combos that I absolutely love in a single look: black + brown and light texture + heavy texture.
Everything was going unusually well until it came time to pick out a bag. Sure, a touch of color is always welcome, or do I prefer to keep the black + brown theme going? ? Major doubts between the yellow 284 bag and the brown Chanel.
In the end I decided to go with the Chanel and finish off the look with all gold accessories, to keep the whole thing coordinated. Check out the details in the gallery below:
The final look came out like this:
