Side Slits and Turtleneck

It has been a while since I have been looking for a dress that I can wear now in the winter. I wanted a dress with a turtleneck, I wanted the length to be below my knees, and I wanted the material to be some sort of a knit. I went to a bunch of stores when I was in the King of Prussia Mall and I surprisingly couldn’t find anything like the dress I had in my mind. I was almost giving up the saga of finding the dress when I finally found this one at LAMODA101.

At the end, this dress is even better than what I had in my mind because ofthe keyhole at the front neckline, and especially the side slits.

The side slits worked great with my new wooden lace up sandals from Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn, which I am obsessed about.

Lately, I have been more into longer dresses than shorter ones. Suddenly (or maybe not so suddenly) I feel more like a woman and I want to show that through my wardrobe. For this year that just started, I want to buy more clothes that make me feel elegant and powerful, without losing my personal style. Just like this look does.

Do you have any plans about giving a little change to your wardrobe in 2016? Leave comment ;)
