Unapologetically Brazen

"There's a silent place, in the tragedies,
  Water washes clean, until they're dry.
  Turn your shattered dreams into rhapsodies.

  This is where I keep you in my mind.
  I need you to be free.

  So this is where I leave you,
  Sitting in a palace covered in gold inside my head.
  This is where I see you,
  On a bed if roses when I wanna kiss your silhouette." -- Palace, Hayley Kiyoko

Styling Note: This look was a little out of my comfort zone for a couple of reasons. You may have noticed that while I love color, I am not as big into bold prints. I like them in theory, but execution is a little tricky. Also, this dress is a sheath dress, which means it has very little extra room in it for the "fluffy" days. I am not a fan of that. Having said that, I loved this dress when I saw it in the store. The scale of the print and the coloring was perfect. I was determined not to let my own insecurity stop me from branching out. Stepping out of the bubble was actually pretty freeing.
