Do you ever go window shopping with no intention of buying something just to browse for inspiration and then stumble upon a magical dress for the right price? Well, that’s just what happened with this plum peplum dress which was from Eva Longoria’s Limited collection. It was only $30 because the store was closing, so it’s unfortunate that it closed, but I’m lucky that I found it 🙂 It really is a magical dress because once I’m zipped up, it hugs everything in the right place and the perfect amount. I never wear body forming dresses, but I decided to take a fashion risk with this one and it worked in my favor.
For a brief moment, it was safe to wear this dress with no tights, but it’s back to wearing tights. And since it’s since technically winter, I wore a moto leather jacket to make the dress a bit more funky. I really like the side asymmetrical peplum of this dress because usually peplum goes all around the waist and this one is different, which I like. I also can’t stop wearing these ZARA heels. For their height, they’re actually quite comfortable and basically match my entire winter wardrobe.
On another note, I have a fun girls’ night dinner planned tonight (maybe I’ll wear this ‘lil number again) and I can’t wait! It’s basically the only thing getting me through this dreary rainy day…

Yeah it’s finally Friday! What a week. We had two cold days from school this week after just starting again from winter break. I’m not complaining because it’s been really really cold and I’m still getting over a cold. Quality time with my bed and lots of tea definitely helped the last two days.
On that note, since it’s already the weekend I’m ready for a night out on the town. I don’t really feature a lot of “night” outfits because obviously the best lighting is during the day, but I just had to take photos of one of my favorite winter night outfits. I scored this awesome DVF polka dot mock shirt at Crossroads Trading last month when I hosted an event with some fellow blogger ladies. I could not believe my eyes and price ($30)! Also, can you believe I’ve had this leather skirt since 2001? Crazy. Note to self: invest in more leather.
Here’s to the weekend and staying warm as possible.
