Not So Plain Jane Pleated Color Block Dress

This pleated color block dress easily transforms from day to night. Simple, yet chic.

Yesterday I was going out to dinner at SOCO straight after work to celebrate my cousin’s birthday, so I chose this pleated color block dress since it can easily transform from day to night. I spiced it up a bit with my accessories, playing on the colors in the dress, and added some leopard calf hair strappy sandals. I guess Jane doesn’t have to be so plain after all!

I absolutely love the simplicity of this dress. Understated yet chic. It’s another one from my Spring/Summer 2012 Haul Video. It’s by a brand called Bebop and I purchased it from the Macy’s Memorial Day Sale for about $15 #winning! Btw, I spent the day at the beach on Sunday. Can’t you tell?!  Finally got my summer tan 🙂

SOCO is a pretty popular restaurant in Brooklyn that serves Southern Fused Cuisine. It has been open for a little over a year and I am glad that we finally had a chance to drop in since the food was ah-mazing! I had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Red Velvet Waffles…

Soco Fried Chicken and Red Velvet Waffles

The chicken was juicy, seasoned well and barely greasy while the waffles were nice and fluffy with a mild red velvet taste. The syrup was infused with something that I can’t quite explain but it was very deelish. The meal was the perfect pairing with my Soco Caramel Martini with Toasted Marshmallow…

OMG this was so good!

    1. Lmao hilarious. OMG, I apologize. When ppl stare at me I wait to see if they give some kind of indication that they know me, if not I get very annoyed. Especially on NYC trains with all the weirdos. I give my “don’t even think about it” look. I am so sorry, I am such a meanie.
