Today, I am interrupting my coverage of NYFW to share this recent shoot featuring the beautiful Willa Staats. Willa is from the great city of Austin, TX where I recently attended The Austin City Limits Music Festival. Willa is styled in a Glitter and Gold OOTD which was built around a fabulous Green Sequin Dress that I was gifted by Motel Rocks (and Bollare’s in LA– Thanks Analise and Zach!) I was first introduced to Motel Rocks while attending Lucky Magazine’s FABB Conference for Bloggers last year in NYC. Their playsuits, dresses, and vintage are incredibly curated for the young and chic.
I think this Glitter and Gold OOTD is particularly appropriate as, like it or not, we are rapidly approaching the holiday season. (Can you believe Halloween is just two weekends away?) But sequin mini-dresses, like this one, can be worn year round over tights or under a leather jacket or feathered bolero (as shown here). Breaking down this look from the top, the feather bolero was a killer find from TopShop while I was visiting London last January (you may remember it from this OOTD featuring my London bestie, Gemma). I chose to accessorize with gold jewelry: vintage, gold snake earrings, a gold and lucite necklace (also from TopShop), and a funky ring by Rachel Zoe. The look sparkles from head to toe thanks to the Swarovski crystal-encrusted Christian Louboutin Volcano Shoes. Finally, I love how the gold of the handles and the green of the alligator skin on her vintage purse pull together all of the pieces of this look.
Check out this dress along with the rest of thier Party Wear Collection for this Holiday Season at this link: Motel Rocks Party Wear for the Holiday Season. Also, be sure to check out their current mid-season sale for up to 70% off here:
Thanks, again, to Bollares and Motel Rocks for the Dress!
