Wearing: BB Dakota eyelet dress
H&M black fitted blazer
Nine West "Mainstay" booties
Estee Lauder "Stay Scarlet" lipstick
I don't know if I'll ever wear this dress without a jacket over it. I bought it two years ago and I should have returned it...but couldn't. I liked it too much to return it. The dress fit me horribly and it still does. It fits too loosely at the waist and makes me look blocky from all sides. I believe it's supposed to be a shift dress, but the construction and fit are a little awkward looking to be one. Regardless of the flaw, it's still a gorgeous dress. The lace is thick, the length isn't too short, and it can easily be dressed up or down.
Anyway, this is such a girly dress than I thought I would wear some leather booties to toughen it up just a little. It's fun to add a tough element to such a frilly feminine piece. Eyelet may be a spring trend but a little leather can turn it into a year round staple.
