#TheMessyProject ------>>> Coco Chanel



ah!



can you believe it?!





who knew a year ago when I started this little project by mentioning it on twitter a few times that in a year it would have grown to be so big & popular.




I cannot thank you guys enough for all the support with the project! It wouldn't be anything if I didn't have you guys, so THANK YOU...& a HUGE thank you to everyone who was apart of a past project




It has been such a year of different outfits..some we loved, some we did not....SO I thought I'd take you down memory lane, starting with the very FIRST project that launched back in July 2012. 




I can't thank these girls enough for being my test babies with the project. They really helped me bring it to life....& who can forget the adorable coral polka dotted first piece!?






Jenna @ Yours Truly
Kelly @ Modern Camelot




& now a year of outfits



august, september, october, november....ooh the sequin shorts that was a risky one


december, january, february, march.....ah the MC hammer pants...not a fav of mine


april, may, & then 2 rounds in june 



my favorite month?



November......the sequin shorts, hands down. 




what was your favorite month? 









& now onto the 1 Year Celebration Outfit







SO since it's the 1 Year Anniversary of #TheMessyProject I had to do something special. Since the past year has been a mix of crazy & fun pieces I thought I would bring it back to the beginning. the basics of fashion. 



the classics. 




Black & White




& since the only way I know how to celebrate is to dress up...I did just that.




Front & Back



I loved how the back of this dress was low cut and the lace was sheer. It added such a fun twist on such a pretty & girly dress.....& if you can tell since the back is low wearing a bra with this dress was a little hard...& considering its white I had to wear something right?! Thank God for my mom & her old school ways...i just put some bandaids over the nips & that was it....
{too much information?...sorry guys}




I am lucky enough to be surrounded by 5 star hotels so this photo shoot was done at The St. Regis Monarch Beach Hotel  & couldn't have been more perfect for the look I was going for ----









so as you can see I added a black belt with some diamond accents to the dress. But you will be surprised to know that the belt you see is actually a headband that I put around my waist. This dress felt so Coco Chanel to me so I went with it and added just a few classic black pieces & some diamond jewelry to go with the diamonds on the 'belt'. 







My black Mary Jane's were the perfect shoe to wear with this girly ensemble...& as you can see I didn't add a necklace because the belt was enough....& i am not much of a dangling earrings person anymore so I stick to my simple diamond studs. Remember less is more




dress: h&m
purse: chanel
shoes: charlotte russe
belt/headband: jolie usa
hat: kmart
bracelet & round diamond ring: forever21
black diamond ring: nordstrom 
nail polish: opi 'black satin'



i'm not gonna lie, i LOVED this dress and I loved this look. it couldn't be more me. 


So what do you think of using a headband as a belt? How would you have worn the dress? 


Now go & check out how the other fabulous girls have styled the dress.....& incase you haven't noticed yet, each one of the girls in this round are from a past project! 





Melis of MRD Girl Musings


Jessica of Jessica Who? 









oh wait! one more thing.....



you didn't think I would leave you hanging without some type of giveaway did you!? Whats a celebration without presents....am I right?! 





SO today I am giving away a spot on #TheMessyProject for NEXT Month!!!!!

Good Luck!

What an awesome giveaway! I love the idea of challenging myself through #themessyproject. I have a really hard time stepping outside the box, and tend to dress in a very simple and understated way (see: boring). My favorite was the striped skirt- I love that everyone did something very different with it to create 4 very different looks and styles.

Jessica Raquel said...

November is my fav month as well!

Katie Keltner said...
