From Day Into Night With A Shirt Dress.

September 13, 2013
Hey everyone.
How gorgeous is this brick red/burgundy shirt dress?
I got it from a great online store called: Not So Basic
A Portuguese brand that loves to create women’s fashion appropriate for day and night.
Their materials are rich and luxurious, yet come with an amazing affordable price tag.
The material of this dress is really thick and heavy, yet sleek and ultra soft, with a beautiful lining.
Not So Basic are proud of the fact their clothes are made of beautiful and high quality fabrics.
They are all manufactured and designed in Portugal.
I was very surprised when I opened the box when it arrived a few weeks ago.
 It was great to find out the quality of this dress is impeccable and is so extremely comfortable to wear
A combination that is always a winner with me.
The color is absolutely perfect for this fall season coming up.


 I want to show you how you can easily transform a daytime look in to a night time one.
 The fun thing was because of the classic and simple design, I was able to completely style this dress in any way I wanted.
For a corporate daytime look 
 I chose a lace blazer and cute studded bow heels for some classic chic.
I added a black croco print leather bag which easily carries all work related items you might need through out the day plus the accessories you need for your night out after work .
I kept jewellery and make up to a minimum and rocked a braided hairstyle to make the outfit appear trendy and fresh.
I could have gone with a tight hair bun too, but I wanted to make sure it could be easily transformed into a night time hair style.
I chose to wear the same gold plated belt for both day and night time.
I think you want to keep your night time accessory changes to a minimum, so you don’t have to carry huge amounts of stuff to work.


For a night time look:
Which possibly means heading straight to a fun restaurant or heck a wild bar after work.
You can just take out your hair braid, then flat iron your hair to fix unwanted kinks from braiding it in the morning and walking around with it all day.
Sweep on some red lip gloss, add statement earrings and a dazzling clutch.
Change the heels and you are good to go for a night out.
in ten minutes
Statement earrings add so much drama to an outfit, you don’t even need to go heavy on the eye make up.
Saving you lots of time when getting ready.
