A Classic + A Giveaway {Closed}

I have got a real treat for everyone today! I'd like to introduce Muse Apparel, an amazing online modern dress boutique. Their dresses are classy, chic, and just simply beautiful.

{Dress: c/o Muse Apparel, Blazer: Zara, Shoes: H&M (similar), Necklace: Francesca's Collection (similar), Tights: Target, Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21}

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my dress. The quality is amazing and the dress looks so beautiful in person. I've been wanting to get myself a classic dress and this definitely is it. I feel like I can wear this dress for so many occasions, to a work meeting, to an interview, to a cocktail party, to a wedding, and to a nice dinner with my husband. This dress is definitely timeless and I know I'll be wearing it over and over again.

Today, Muse is giving away a $150 gift card to one lucky Always Maylee reader!  So generous right!? This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The winner will be chosen on February 8. Good luck everyone!

I'm getting ready for our crazy giant blizzard today with lots of snacks. It was worth making my husband wait 45 min in line at the grocery store last night to get that last box of teddy grahams. He appreciates it, I'm sure. 

It's also Chinese New Year this weekend, so for those who celebrate, Happy New Year!

Yi-Chia, you are incredibly stylish with this outfit. You're certainly "maylee" with this outfit. It is more of the blazer along with the dress that makes it so stylish. Same goes for the stylish pumps and the charming necklace. Wonderful outfit!
