Colorblock Dress


Colorblock cutout dress c/o Sway Chic // H&M collar necklace, t-strap heels

This dress is probably the only colorblocked garment that I own. And now that I think about it, it's also the only piece I have with cutouts! Haha, late to the scene but at least I made it? :) It's such a bold dress that I didn't feel the need to add much else. (Plus, it was sizzling hot and I wasn't quite in the mood to do any layering. You should have seen how relieved I was when I finally found an area with shade!) Also, I wanted to create a sleek ponytail for this look; I figured that it wouldn't be too much more difficult than a regular ponytail. However, the hair styling gods were not shining down on me, and I ended up failing miserably. Well... at least it was better than my braiding! But other than my failed hair endeavors, special thanks to the lovely people at Swaychic.com who were kind enough to send me this stunning dress. Sway Chic offers a great variety of clothing and accessories at affordable prices, and everyone should definitely check it out!

xoxo, Elly

    This look is amazing:the shoes match the dress divinely to create a perfect harmony of bright colours, while the golden necklace tops it off providing just the right dose of sparkle. You look great! Let's stay in touch dear!
