What I wore - fashion giveaway - Mikarose

(giveaway below!)

Oh nelly! I'm getting fancy on you today! I often share my style tips when I share my "what to wear" posts. A lot of what's in my (tip #1) closet is some basics that are versatile and wearable wear round.
Yes I have bold pieces and patterned pieces and items that I switch out with the seasons but I love a wardrobe that's easy and affordable too. One that I can keep adding too (ha ha ha). 


And one of the basic pieces is the little black dress. We've heard it all our lives as women. And honestly I didn't ever really own one until a few years ago but I did have some great black skirts that fit well (tip #2 - a great option for the little black dress) and I could pair several tops with those skirts (again with the versatility).


This dress is new and it's from MikaRose. And guess what?! you get the chance to win a $50.00 gift card to their shop!(you'll find the giveaway at the bottom!)

I love the 3/4 sleeve and I love that it's long enough and not too short. It's got some great detailing like gathers and pleats without being too over done. 


I paired it with black heels and really wasn't sure what type of accessories but soon realized that (tip #3) black is perfect backdrop to really make my accessories POP! I went for glam pairing it with some shiny gold and pearl combination for a necklace and large crystal earrings. 
Then I changed it up layering on some silver, adding a leopard clutch and a feathered headband (tried something new). (tip #3 - think of all the color options for heels and accessories you can play with because the black is a blank canvas)


MikaRose is modesty reinvented. So many times I have to layer under what I wear so it's not sleeveless or cut to low. Plus I have a terrible time finding dresses and skirts that are long enough and not too short. MikaRose has "fixed" all those problems and offers many styles and items that I can wear without all the trouble. Can I get an Amen to that!? tee hee hee...

Enter below to do some shopping with MikaRose!

  6. I've bought the basic tees before, they are great to make the arm holes modest and covers garments. But all their dresses are wonderful too.
