So when the Altuzarra for Target line launched there were a couple things I wanted, and one of them was the maxi dress. My store didn’t have it, so I tried on another dress and just ordered this one online in the same size. It fits perfect and I quite enjoy wearing it. I wore this both out for dinner for a friend’s birthday, and to work a few days later. The outfit was essentially the same, but for work I tossed on a cardigan because I always freeze in the office. This pin was directly responsible for this outfit. In fact, I’ve had it pinned for ages and was thrilled when I tried this dress on and realized it would be a perfect dress to duplicate that look with! Here’s my take on the look…
Altuzarra for Target Maxi Dress with Cutout Booties
So in addition to the dress, the booties, and the cardigan, I added my black glasses, my burgundy clutch, and a few little baubles to glam it up. Everyone at work as all “ooh you fancy” but I didn’t care! I loved this look and would wear it again in a heartbeat (which, really, I did since it was just a couple days after wearing it the first time). I had something after work this particular fall day that made dressing up necessary, and I haven’t had a reason since. But I’m looking forward to playing with it over the next couple weeks as we get into the holiday season.
I couldn’t resist showing a little leg (and my undercut) off for a shot.
Here’s a closer look at my boots… a pair of knock-offs. They’re made to look like the Balenciaga cut out booties that are something like $1200. I picked these up online at GoJane (where they’re sold out) for around $30 I believe. I love them, and kind of regret not getting a matte black finish also. But the burnished burgundy filled a void in my closet, and if i had two pairs I’d likely only wear one of them all the time.
My accessories include some pieces from Stella & Dot, including the gold Christina Link bracelet. An all out arm party would work well with this, but I can’t deal with that much going on on my wrists at work. It bugs me.
My necklaces are a mix of an old piece I got at a garage sale as a kid, and two Stella & Dot pieces. Once I discovered how nicely part of the Aria pendant and part of the Trinity pendant layered, I wore them together often.
As I mentioned above, I loved this look and can’t wait to wear it again… again. I’m also thinking this dress will be great with my navy Monroe and Main boots, and with a pair of flat burgundy riding boots I have. Or perhaps with glittery silver tights and black dress shoes. Lots of options, I think!
