The Perfect Date Night Dress


I sat here for about two hours last night on Lightroom trying to figure out the perfect way to edit these photos. I tried preset after preset and nothing was working. So then I decided to go check out my favorite bloggers sites and try to edit my photos like theirs and it was wrong. I like to call myself a wanna-be fashion blogger because I'm over here doing my thing, but it's not my career. I love writing about topics that I'm genuinely interested in and sharing fashion that I love. I'm my own person and I want everything about A Small Town Fashionista to reflect that. So with that being said, bare with us as we find the perfect angle for A Small Town Fashionista. Which means lots of different photo edits, like these 😜 

. . . .

Wooo, now that that's out of the way we can get into the real reason you're all here.. for the outfit deets. Am I right?! I purchased this dress a little bit ago when it was on crazy sale and I've been dying to get it live on the blog for you guys ever since.. but the cold weather wasn't allowing any of it. With Valentines Day slowly approaching us, this is definitely an appropriate time to share this beauty because it's for sure the perfect date night dress. Seriously every detail of this thing is gorgeous and so flirty. The best thing about this dress is that you can style it a variety of ways to fit your personal style. 

If you want to keep it simple and flirty, stick with just that. Add a pair of heels and you're good to go! If it's cold add your favorite leather jacket or if you're like me and can't stop wearing a certain velvet blazer, that works too. You guys sick of seeing it yet?! Lol.

If you want to add more glam to the look, style a black fitted tee underneath and style it with some booties. 

Lastly, you can layer this with a pullover sweater for a casual twist to it.

So if you have some fun V-day plans coming up and are unsure what to wear, snag this dress up quick!
