frugal friday : emerald shift dress

frugal friday : emerald shift dress by ohvadarling featuring kate spade

If you haven't heard, the color of 2013 is emerald green.  So, for this Frugal Friday I wanted to incorporate this amazing color into 2 different looks.

A shift dress is such a great piece to thrown on in a rush but still look cute, not to mention they are usually super comfy.  This shift dress from ASOS is a great color and cut(available in 3 other colors) and you can easily transform your outfit from running errands to a hot night out.  

For the casual look, really anything can go.  It may be March 1st but it is still winter and chilly out so adding layers and boots to the dress really can make it winter weather appropriate.  The emerald will peek through your big neutral layers and go well with any brown boots.

For the dressy look, I love gold accents and really wanted the dress to be the statement (as well as the legs), so kept everything pretty simple.  The emerald color is so beautiful and wanted it to be the eye catcher.  I think you can really get a lot of bang for your buck with this dress.
