Blood Orange

This bandage dress from the lovely Bqueen is a reddish orange, and reminds me of the delicious Blood Oranges, have you tried them? I love fruit. Pineapple, kiwi, apples, honeydew melon, etc.


New dress in Small – c/o Bqueen, heels and ring – Aldo, purse – Style&Co., necklace and sunglasses – c/o LYLIF

This is really more of a night time look, and I will admit I felt a bit silly as I did not even realize I was right next to a church just as people were arriving for their 5 ‘o clock service. Oops! Anyways, Bqueen has so many awesome dresses, this was one of their more simple styles, but really, check them out 🙂

One of my favorite accessories you have probably noticed I’ve worn several times in the last few weeks is my LYLIF necklace. It is just so cool.

And oh dear, dear, dear. These photos just made me realize I need a tan. NOW.

What’s funny is I’m always tempted to talk about food when I write my blog posts. I cook and try new and delicious recipes (99% of them are healthy too) fairly often, so perhaps I will start to incorporate that.

    AWww Jess! This color is wonderful on you!! And that dress is so amazing with the back cut out. I don't think you need a tan at all! Your complexion is great the way it is!I have never tried blood oranges. But I like regular ones! :)And I think it would be awesome if you incorporated food/recipes. I could always use healthy recipes and new ideas!!

    You look like a million bucks!! great color. I really like that purse, but I'm sure I already said that! hehe. That's funny about the church thing. Thanks for your comment 🙂 I started doing runway just for fun about a year ago. It was one of my attempts to try something new and get out of my shell. Those events definitely force me out of my shell,

    That color is gorgeous on you! And I used to tan all the time when I was lifeguard (against my will, really) but I think my skin is much healthier when I don't. Some of my roommates do it religiously but I've never seen the point 😛 Everyone is beautiful as they are!YasmeenCastle Fashion

    i love the whole look. How do you pull off every single color in the rainbow?? Is there even a color you don't look good in? !! I love the back detail of the dress, and how you put an edge on the look with the serpent necklace and dark shoes. LOVE! xO!
