My Style Challenge: Wardrobe Shopping

Every now and then I try to wear something differently than I'm wore it before! I have a beautiful burgundy maxi dress with spaghetti straps that I never really wear to work due to said straps. But last night it occurred to me that I could throw on a tunic on top and give my dress a totally new look!

I considered photoshopping my tummy and realized I should be celebrating my curves!
I'm wearing: Sisley maxi dress, Rachel Rachel Roy muscle long tee, H&M belt and leopard print blazer, Michael Michael Kors purple pumps, Jill Stuart purse, Juicy Couture sunnies. Jewelry includes: cluster ring by a local artisan in El Paso, TX, necklace courtesy of Tiffany & Co., leather wrap bracelet by Juicy Coutre, mixed metal bracelet from CUSP, blue braid bracelet courtesy of South Moon Under.
Are my hand's looking a bit Madonna-veiny? Why am I so insecure today?
This ring is one of my best jewelry purchases! I love it's size and the silver, black and turquoise together, giving it an edgy summer feel. I wish I remembered the name of the jewelry designer - the shop owner told me a bit about her but it was the same day I was flying home. Nothing wipes your memory more than a long day of traveling!
New sunnies make me smirk sardonically
I was going to brag about how I was doing an outfit post not prompted by a new purchase but my sunglasses are new... aren't the fab?? I love me a strong cat eye!
