There is so much that just one dress can transform about a person's look. A ball-gown seeps elegance, glamour, and sophistication; a pleated mesh dress from CaraMabes can morph a 15-year-old fashion blogger + student into feeling as if she too is donning an elaborate couture gown. Although this dress does not ooze intricate, ornate glamour (as a Balmain or Dior concoction might) it does have a soft, free feeling to it that instantly extracts a sense of luxury. In a stunning indigo hue, with a subtle heart-shaped neckline, the dress truly did give me a sense of transformation. My wardrobe is not entirely devoid of formal clothing, but my home's weather conditions does not always allow me a chance to slip into such a beautiful piece of clothing on a regular basis. Upon wearing the dress, which I paired with striped wedges, the feeling of constantly dressing in shorts and a t-shirt entirely disappeared. If only I could walk around in such a beautiful dress like this everyday.
Due to the dress exuding simplicity, I opted for minimal makeup and accessories. I dabbed a bit of my favorite Armani lipstick, which was the only dash of color I included in the look other than deep blue hues. With my hair down and wavy, the photo-shoot inspired a vibe of nature – clean and minimal. Taken in the memory garden in my school, the background was adorned with subtle greenery and plants galore. Sunshine and wind were both unrestrained and I often had to shield my eyes from the unrelenting rays of the sun.
