The Lace-Up Dress

I've been loving lace-up everything this fall. I actually saw a sales associate at Forever 21 with this dress on and I knew I had to have it. It's just a tad short, but wearing it with flats makes it more appropriate (it also doesn't hurt that I'm also short). It'll be fun to pair with tights and booties this winter as well. I've been eyeing this Topshop dress, and was crossing my fingers it'd go on sale soon. However, this is a great look for less with the lace-up detail. I've linked to some more great lace-up items below.
