A Paper Doll Once Again

The last Paper Doll Project was so much fun that I had to sign up again. This time, I was paired with the lovely and fabulous fellow mommy, Tyesha from Diary of a Chic Mommy. Looking through Tyesha's outfit posts, I loved her style, and I was excited to work with her.

I chose my newly purchased Rodarte for Target dress because I wasn't sure how to make it work appropriate and not look like I'm going to a wedding or funeral or bedroom or something with the black lace pattern (wide range of possibilities there, eh?).

Here's how she styled me!

Dress: Rodarte for Target; Cardigan: Gap; Belt: from a Kohl's shirt; Necklace: gift; Bracelet and Boots: Target

I really like how the look is basically all black and gold/tan with a pop of color. Tyesha left it up to me whether I wanted to wear heels or boots, so I went with boots since it's always chilly in the office and since the dress is pretty short for work.

She suggested either black or gold accessories, so I chose a gold bracelet and a gold layered locket necklace that was given to me by my in-laws when Bridget was born. Actually worked out perfectly since they're in town visiting right now.  As for the bracelet, I thought this gold one was cool because it kind of looks like zippers.  I thought maybe it would add a little bit of edge to the ensemble.

Be sure to head on over to Diary of a Chic Mommy to see how I styled Tyesha, also in a Target dress, and check out the rest of the Paper Doll Project participants by clicking on the badge.

  1. Such a great outfit! The gold accessories really do add that extra bit of edge- the snake-skin pattern of the bracelet+the boots = love.

  2. The bracelet does look like snake skin! I never noticed that before. Now it's even cooler, heh.

  3. Fun! I like how she styled a colorful cardi with the dress, it made it easier to pull off for daytime.

  4. You look great Rebekah and I just love the pop of purple. I'm glad you decided to go with the boots instead. I think it gives the look that extra edge and I love it. LOVE the accessories..cute!!! Thanks so much for styling me as well, and I definitely enjoyed working with you :-) I'm following you to keep up with new post.

    Enjoy the Rest of You Week :-)

  5. Thanks, Tyesha! It was a lot of fun, both styling and being styled!
