Dress: J.Crew / Hat: J.Crew / Clutch: Anthropologie (also love this and this) / Heels: Saks Fifth Avenue Black (on sale $50)
Your eyes have not deceived you. In somewhat atypical fashion, I'm wearing a punch of bright orangey color. I saw this dress hanging by it's lonesome in my local J.Crew store (and on sale) and thought to myself, go try that on.
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the fit of this dress, which is why I try everything on. And I mean everything. The tea length gives this dress a really elegant feel, however it still has a cool understated vibe. I'm thinking about wearing a belt with this next time to cinch the waist a little. Either way, I'm happy that I ventured out from my maxi dress safety zone. Go try this one on—you might fall in love too.
By the way, these heels are on sale for $50. Fifty dollars. This is the shoe that will save you when you can't find anything in your closet to wear with "that dress" in your friend's wedding. You know what I'm talking about.
