Chartreuse + Cobalt

If I had to pick my favorite color, I would say chartreuse in a heartbeat. There is something about this shade of yellow/green that I adore. It just makes me happy! I always like to pair bold colors together so I wore my T+J Designs cobalt bib necklace to accessorize this look. Since I’m going all out with color here, I decided to keep the shoes and bag simple and classic black. I know I am wearing my new mules again but seriously, they go with everything! They are from Zara – and for those who have asked me yes they are super comfortable, I tested them out on the town with the girls recently and there was no barefoot walking at the end of the night – I highly recommend them.
I bought this dress a while back from ASOS for a steal – like $30 on clearance steal. Then I spent about the same to get it tailored and I ended up with the perfect fitting dress. I am so so late to the game on getting things altered but I recently took a few items (some that I had for years, I kid you not) and I am so happy I did! I have a pear-shape and every mass-produced thing I buy is meant for someone with a much bigger waist and absolutely no hips – So, I go a size up and tailor the waist – done. Victoria Beckham was right – that extra half inch really does make all of the difference! 
Do you get things tailored to fit your body or do you just deal with ill fitting clothes because you think they don’t look too bad? Do tell!
