Do you remember that magical time before Facebook when you could wear the same dress to five separate events without fear of anyone noticing?
Yeah, I barely remember that time either.
One of my closest friends is getting married in a few weeks, and I decided to (finally) spring for a new dress for the occasion. After scouring the usual suspects for a few hours (Revolve.com, ShopStyle.com, ASOS.com…), I finally found this bold blue little number.
The detail on this dress is beyond beautiful. I love the tactile, slightly fluttery flowers, and the open weave at the midriff and hem keeps things from being too sweet. And the color...the just-bold-enough hue of electric blue makes just the right kind of statement.
I really love the ultra-feminine cut of the dress, too. The slight fullness of the skirt provides a little extra glamour, and the ever-so-low cross-back straps show just enough skin.
This bold pink trench complements the hue of the dress just perfectly.
