MCLV Style: Ladylike Tweed + Oxblood

Two brands that I can always count on to produce dress after dress after dress that I love are Banana Republic and BCBG. In either store I’m more likely than not to: (1) Love every single thing that I try on, and (2) Leave the premises with more than I anticipated, and very likely, more than I need.

As was the case with this grey ladylike tweed dress that I swooped up on super sale during the holidays at Banana Republic. It’s a simple dress in a classic silhouette, like so many in my closet, but what I really liked about it was the versatility. It goes from a fun little weekend dress like this to a chic work dress with the right changes.

Another thing I’d like to mention is this bag – Angela & Roi is much, much more than just an online handbag shop. Not only are all of their divine styles made from vegan leather, each color supports a different cause. So when you’re choosing your color – A portion of the proceeds go to a specific charity. This beautiful, rich purple-oxblood hue supports Alzheimer’s Disease, which I chose because my grandfather was a sufferer. I highly, highly recommend taking a look at these great bags and do some good for the world while you shop!

Do YOU have a store that you always do too much damage in?

  24. Your look is so classic and glamorous! I’m sorry about your grandfather, and I adore the story behind the colour of the bag you chose. I actually don’t have a particular store because I tend to be very picky and only buy certain pieces.. it is hard to find clothing that is suitable for my shape that I can feel comfortable in.

    • I agree – You really have to work to find the right brand for your style & body. But once you find it! 🙂
