Dress of my Dreams

Dress? Vintage Scaasi, Antique Avenue (awesome store in Hamilton) Jacket? Club Monaco, thrifted (similar here) Shoes? Ralph Lauren, DSW (here) Belt? Thrifted Clutch? Hilary Radley (similar here)Bracelet? My Oma's

I want to wear this dress everyday. And that is saying a lot, because usually at the end of the day, I am finger snapping at my closet and yelling 'next'... But this dress just does it for me. If I didn't want to avoid hurting some feelings, I would call this dress my new favourite. ' Favourite' is a strong word though...

I love how the demure neckline and sleeves are a contrast to the loud print and the flirty hem. But mostly, I love a piece that I will be excited to wear for years, as I am with this dress. I mean, I get excited over trends but one day, I'm going to laugh at 2012 Jentine who was loving neon and busting out the leopard print skinnies but I am never going to laugh at 2012 Jentine for wearing a pretty pink silk dress. I would however, tell my past self to get my roots touched up and maybe get some more sleep to combat those undereye circles...

I completely agree with you on the neckline/flirty contrast, it's awesome. And that print... man, I'm pretty sure that's the epitome of what I want in my summer 2012 wardrobe. Great dress!

Scaasi?!? That's SCAASI??? based on my dim memories of his 70's horrors I would that your dress is not only the prettiest thing he ever made but probably the only pretty thing he ever made. LOL. Well, I might do more Scaasi research to be sure. :-) But really though, that is absolutely stunning, and perfect on you. Such a score!! Congrats!!!

The one thing I hate about going on vacation (trust me there's only 1 thing!) is getting behind on reading my favorite blogs. I LOVE your dress..the colours, the print, the shape...perfect! And I super love the contrast of the black studded belt!

What a wonderful article. Now many Alfred Angelo 2347 styles, each one has its own design concept and unique style, but the brides also have very high requirements for their Alfred Angelo 2349,before they may just want a suitable for own Allure 2555, but now they hope that is perfect and unique. In recent years, brides are becoming more and more interested in colored Allure 2556, gorgeous color, every bride can't resist their charm. a kind of new popular trend, is sexy black Allure 2557.
