A couple weeks ago, I saw MK of The Gold Hatted Lover wearing a leather jacket over a black dress. I loved how it looked and knew I wanted to try it! However, none of my black dresses really looked right. They didn't have the right fit to go with the leather jacket. Well, over the weekend I received this dress in the mail from Choies. After taking it out of the packaging I knew exactly how I was going to style it! Thanks for the inspiration, MK!

If you follow me on Instagram then you already heard the news, but I was featured on Lauren Conrad's website as Chic of the Week on Friday!! It was the most exciting thing to happen to me with this blog. Please go check out the post! Thank you, Team LC, so much for featuring me!

Lastly, today is the final day to enter to win the sunrise statement necklace from Viva La Jewels! I styled it on Monday and Friday. Enter using the rafflecopter below!
