The Sparkliest Dress

I recently discovered (and fell in love with)¬†Frock and Frill, a womenswear brand filled with beautiful, feminine dresses with vintage vibes. Each dress is prettier then the next with gorgeous and intricate beading and their latest collection of dresses come in the most dreamy pastel colors and I want.them.all! Blush tones, mints, lilacs, icy blues, it just doesn’t get better. ūüėČ I can’t wait for warmer weather so I can have the chance to wear this dress outdoors! Also on my wish list are¬†the pink embellished skater dress, embellished lace mint dress, and¬†the baroque blue sequin shift dress.¬†frock and frill dress frock and frill frockandfrill frock and frill embellished dress frock and frill dress1

The Ultimate LBD and A Giveaway!

I don’t believe I’ve worn this¬†Ted Baker dress¬†(currently on sale!) on the blog before. It’s¬†one of my favorite little black dresses¬†and the gold lace is a beautiful touch. This adorable embellished transparent bag¬†is from Crazy & Co, a fun boutique filled with unique, quirky, and often one-of-a-kind pieces curated from around the world. I love that the jewelry, accessories, bags, and home decor from Crazy & Co are pieces you wouldn’t find anywhere else. They’re fun, playful, and colorful while still being sophisticated and I love that they support artists around the world. I am so excited that Crazy and Co is offering a giveaway for¬†my readers!

Blush Lace Tulle

I have officially found the prettiest tulle skirt in the world (thank you Bliss Tulle!) and I’m completely in love! I paired this blush tulle skirt with a blush jeweled sweater and this might be one of my favorite looks on the blog. Do I have an occasion where it’s appropriate to wear this? None that I can think of but it doesn’t make me love this look any less. ūüôā Where would you guys wear this??

I’m away this week with limited access to internet but looking forward to reading your opinions and comments when I get back Friday!

Navy Peplum

Pairing navy with hot pink is one of my favorite combinations (proof¬†here) so when Piperlime sent me this adorable navy Waiting 4 U Dress¬†from Keepsake, I knew I needed to pair it with my hot pink moto jacket. This dress is now on sale for more than 60% off! The peplum flared bottom is so fun and although the dress is shorter than I’m usually comfortable with, the opaque navy tights keep it from looking scandalous. ūüėČ

Navy Lace Dress

This was the other dress I scored at the Shoshanna sample sale (you can see the first Shoshanna dress here). It¬†wasn’t a sample dress so it wasn’t as cheap but the 70%¬†off made it a really good price;¬†I had two family weddings coming up so I bought it. The sleeves came unlined like most lace dresses¬†so I had it lined for modesty reasons. It seriously pays to find a good tailor; she even found the fabric for me!¬†It was a perfect match and she did an amazing job as you can see; even slightly lengthening the sleeve so I could feel more comfortable at the very religious weddings I would be attending.
