Shifting Side Suede Dress from Tobi
Today I wanted to feature a cute dress from Tobi.com. It’s a one piece genuine suede dress in a grey-ish blue shade. When I met Chriselle Lim last September in New York, she was wearing this stunning suede dress after her first fashion runway. I remembered making a mental note to myself to find something similar and this dress really reminds me of it.
And by the way, Chriselle was so nice in person and I had a great couple minutes chatting with her about her first runway show for Rebecca Minkoff. She said she was so nervous, but Chriselle, you totally got it!
How I Styled It
I think I was really captured by the stone blue color and thought it was a nice dress to wear for the fall/winter. I styled it with a white moto jacket from Zara (I love moto style) and added a pair of my favorite pointed toe bootie from Marc Fisher. You can wear any piece of statement necklace for this dress, maybe a silver tone to stay in that cool tone.
Tips on How to Make a Big Dress Work for Petites without Sewing
So because I am a petite, the dress was too big on me even in the smallest size. One cool tip is to use a belt to tighten the waist area and making it a bit form fitting for myself. I would use the belt as I would if there were belt loops and then pull up some fabric up from the dress to cover the belt (no sight of belt seen). It’s a really neat trick without getting it altered and it’s free and pretty easy.
