The Black Midi Dress

 













 



Shop This Look:
Dress: Urban Planet ($15) Poncho: Marshalls Hat, Tights and Faux Fur Gloves: Ardene Boots: Michael Antonio via Beyond The Rack

Total Cost: Approx. $57.23

Just in case you can't tell, my housemate and I had a blast shooting this outfit! As I said in my IAB feature, I'm a very shy person, so it's normally an issue for me when we have to shoot in a public area. This time however, the roads we quite empty so I opened up and just had fun!

I feel like I'm beginning to discover my personal style; you know: what works for me, my body type, my personality and my confidence. I wore this outfit to church yesterday and I felt awesome inside-out! It wasn't because I was really dressed up, but I just felt extremely comfortable!

I have a question for you guys. When shopping, online or in-store, what matters to you more in each of these categories: Quality Vs. Quantity; Price Vs. Brand Name! I'd like to know, so let me know in the comments!

Would you like to get involved with IAB? Send in your answers to the questions! :)

  1. You're not over-dressed at all. You look lovely! :)

    I do look for quality, but name brands don't matter as much to me, as it might to others. It's not all designer items that last 'forever'. They also have their limits. When I do buy designer items, I either go to outlet stores or thrift stores.

  3. It largely depends on the accessory/ material. For clothes, I definitely prefer quality over quantity any day.
    but with style I prefer quantity. Il rather have 10 pair of shoes than have one pair (same combined cost of 10) that is quality. Brand name is not so much an issue with me. If I get a branded purse or something for a reasonable price, I am probably the happiest person :)
    I am such a huge fan by the way

    1. Thank you Funmi! I so agree with you about the shoes! I love shoes soooo much and so I'd pick quantity + less price tag than quality + big price tag ANYDAY! lol :)

  4. Those boots are so fabulous! Love this look! For me, it's usually about quality... Buying good quality items can be such a big investment!! And just because it's good quality doesn't necessarily = expensive - shop outlets, clearance, sales and thrift!!!

    1. Thank Kenya! :) True... you, know when people speak of quality, I wonder what they're talking about. I've personally never bought something that's 'low quality' even though I own a lot of things with a very low price tag and all these things have lasted up till now!
