Paper Doll Dress Up with Fashion Momma

This outfit was put together by Kimberly from Fashion Momma as part of the
Paper Doll Project by Miss Vinyl Ahoy blog!

And I had the privilage of styling her in this lovely dress: 
She told me she would like to wear this dress for her last day of work. We sort of did this literally last minute so not much time to go through everything we owned or discuss possibilities. I did see her use this necklace, belt combo in another post and thought it would be great pop up color with this dress.

I gave her the photo of the skirt on the left.
The skirt on the left is from Saks Fifth Avenue. The one on the right is mine from Forever 21. 
Can you see how similar it is with you know a few hundred dollars in price difference of course!

Kimberly chose a white tee (tucked in) with a chambray shirt (open and untucked) on top. She told me use a brown, black or cream woven belt. I figured this tan color one kind of does the job. She also told me to wear my gold flats which I did but for the photos I went with my brown wooden platforms. The skirt is quite long so with heels it is easier to wear. I had to pretty much hold it up when wearing flats.

The skirt comes with a built in attached biker shorts so you don't need to wear anything else. I love how even though it is maxi it looks sexy due to its sheerness and yet very easy to wear even with kids! 

My other denim shirt is at the cleaners so I pulled this old one out of my son's closet. It is thick denim and size medium so quite baggy but works great as a jacket... 

It was fun dressing each other up. Next time I will definitely try to get in touch and work on this a few days in advance and not last minute... 

White Tee - Express (from a Bazaar in Turkey for $1)
Denim Shirt - J Crew
Skirt, Shoes and Platforms - Forever 21
