in your face

hellllo lovers! so I'm super happy - alllll my shows are pretty much back & boy do i love my tv shows - but the one I was the most excited for was How I Met Your Mother - or as the fans say HIMYM. I seriously could watch nothing but this show for the rest of my life....& it lived up the premiere! so who else is a big HIMYM fan & what is one of your favorite episodes?

 so i was sent a dress a few weeks ago from the adorable brand Kiki La'Rue. I actually never heard of the brand until I started blogging so of course I was excited to find a new clothing brand! When I opened up the package to see the dress I was sent, I'm not going to lie --- I was nervous. 

I was nervous because this dress was something I would never buy or even try on if I were in a store. Not because I don't like it, but because it just isn't my 'look'. I think what I was nervous about the most was the pattern. If you have noticed I don't wear a lot of patterns. And this dress has A LOT going on.....But I was excited to try something completely new. 

So I tried on the dress......& I LOVE it. I didn't think I would love it as much as I do. So because there is already a lot going on with just the dress I added simple accessories to complete the outfit ------>

Dress: Kiki La'Rue Heels: Steve Madden Blazer: Thrift Bangles: Nordstrom Earrings: Forever 21

This dress is not only so adorable but so comfortable to wear. I felt like I was wearing nothing....& it turns out I actually adore the print of the dress & all the fun colors.
 So to complete the look I just added a black blazer, black heels & simple gold jewelry - gold hoops & bangles. I wanted to make this more of a night time outfit so I decided to make my eyes darker than usual by just using a simple black eye liner to outline the eye & then a brush to blend the black & give me the smokey eye. 
So what do you think!? Would you try on a dress with this much going on? How would you wear it?
so because Kiki La'Rue is basically aaamazing they have offered to give you messy readers a chance to win a $50 giftcard to their shop & free shipping using the code MESSY ---> so you know what to do & if you're new around here I highly suggest being logged into your facebook, twitter & gmail
