Winter is the trickiest time to style dresses, especially maxi ones. But I am a die hard maxi dress lover, so I did not let the snow keep me from wearing one right away. Summer is still too far away, you feel me?

I tied up the hem of the dress, threw on a sweater and a belt (gotta give you that hourglass, even with all these layers!), and my favorite pair of booties and voila! 

And in case you recognized that bag, it is the exact same one I have in white and have been wearing basically all the time! I loved it so much, and that burgundy/wine color is so stunning and such a great statement with an all black outfit. I am going to be sharing with you a discount for it in my next newsletter so make sure to subscribe!!

    I love the idea of dressing up a plain maxi by tying it to the side! The belt and blouse make it a completely different outfit!
