Neutral





Dress (AGB find at Marshalls); Necklace (Consignment Shop); Shoes (Tahari find
at Marshalls); Sunglasses (Charming Charlie); Earrings (Nordstrom)

When I got this dress I was so excited to add a pair of fun colored heels or a bold neon statement necklace... but every time I've worn it I've paired it with other neutral colors and minimal jewelry   And it's okay.  Overthinking things always leads me down a path best left alone... and this simple dress with it's 20's inspired flair is also best left alone.  Speaking of the 20's - did anyone see The Great Gatsby this weekend? I hope the movie lived up to those amazing previews!

Beautiful dress! I'd say less is more, going neutral with your accessories works well!

We avoided Great Gatsby this weekend because I am always scared of the crowds when movies get released. It's on the calendar for next week since I have to go Star Trek the following week. :)

Love the dress by the way!!

Neutrals are always a winner! This dress is seriously cool and I love how the shape looks on you!

Trenchcoats to Tiaras said...

I love this dress. Like can I steal it and marry it? :p Well, maybe not marry it, but wear it to death. Same thing, right? I haven't managed to see Gatsby yet, but everyone I know who's seen it can't agree whether it was brilliant or terrible. Hopefully I'll be able to see it this upcoming weekend...

Haven't seen Gatsby yet! I loved the 70's version with Mia Farrow. She was perfect in that roll.

This dress is amazing! Does it have a striped liner? The color beneath looks different at different angles. Just wondering.
