Battle of the Dresses No.1

weekly dress battle to cure workplace attire monotony & incite creative spirit by means of friendly competition


A little backstory from Emily about her outfit:
Dress: Old Navy clearance; Purple Belt and sparkle shoes: Target. The necklace is a very favorite of mine from my Mom this past Christmas. It's from Peru originally, but came my way via Ten Thousand Villages. If you don't know about this amazing organization and their very cool stores, you should check them out! Ten Thousand Villages is one of the world's largest fair trade organizations and features tons of amazing stuff (jewelry, textiles, home goods, art etc.) from tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Yep, totally rad.

And from me (Laura):
Shift Dress (yes, not just a long shirt): Target, super-clearance; Sweater: Target; Belt: Pac Sun (years ago); Boots: Zulily.
The necklace, for me as well, is a very favorite, from Interstellar Love Craft. I'd been crushing on Marisa's jewelry for a few years and finally caved this holiday season when I saw this gorgeous necklace--look at the angle it makes where the chain connects to the further out ties. Love it. 
Make-up: Most is just my basic stuff, BUT the light green eyeshadow is the color Liberty from Beneficial Mineral Co. on Etsy; and the darker mauve (eyelids, lips) is Unearth from SMASH Cosmetics, also on Etsy. 

And now...  please cast your vote. I think criteria for choosing can be anywhere from fashion/style only, to who rocked the look best, to best styling/accessorizing. What's most likely to sway your vote? Tell us in the comments!
