Taking out the Trash


H&M Dress, Forever 21 Ring, Vintage Bracelet and Belt, Nine West Booties

Every so often, I spend an inordinate amount of time fawning over the women of Stockholm Street Style, leaving me utterly inspired and in desperate need of edgy pieces for my wardrobe. When I first saw this dress at H&M, I was enamored with its oversized pleats, fitted top and billowy bottom, only to find that at the office, it was not as admired (a male co-worker asked why I wore a garbage bag to work). Regardless of his opinion, I still think it's a perfectly offbeat twist on a classic item that can be dressed up or down with a jeweled cardigan and flats or a sleek trench and pumps.
