My Style Challenge: A Denim Dress

Inspired by Jeninne of The Coveted and Wendy Brandes, I decided to dip my toes into denim. Obviously I wear plenty of blue jeans (all skinny, all dark), and even the occasional jean skirt or jacket, but I can't help but harbor a secret hatred of the material that makes me think of cowboys, the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, and ugly, Holly Hobby arts & crafts.

So, time get an attitude adjustment!
This is another piece I stole from my mom's expansive closet (which has taken over both my old room, my sister's old room, the basement... yes, it's where I get it from, I know, I know!). It's just a super simple denim shirtdress. It's a little loose, but I've discovered a belt fixes this problem easily... yes the belt was stolen from my mom as well :P
I paired with my pewter wedges that I love and my circle sunglasses since I'm always wearing my other pair by Oliver Peoples. A perfect casual Friday outfit! And later in the night I swapped out the shoes for some edgier platform heels and I was ready for a night out on the town!

Cute dress! I was trying on a denim dress by Stella McCartney last week but it looked shiteous on me!
