Bow and Crochet

Adding to my 10 ways to wear a lace dress post, look #11 is simple and girly, with all credits going to Oscar de la Renta. I've been going through a minimalistic phase, so sparse accessorizing in today's outfit worked nicely to keep other elements from competing with the heavy crochet. Sometimes less is more.

Have a great Tuesday!

  7. It's amazing how a little detail like adding a bow to a lace dress can really make the dress stand out.

    1. Combine that with the stark contrast of black on white/cream, right? I heart that color palette!

  9. Absolutely stunning. Totally pinning! Love everything from head to toe!

    Did you ever have to do alterations on this dress?

    1. Nope, no alterations on this dress. Imo, it's better suited for someone your height though because I feel the waist is a tad high on me. Aside from shrinking a few inches, there's not much I can do so I'll quit whining now :)

    1. Per Jean's post from a few weeks back, AT outlet re-released this dress in navy. I'm not sure what the inventory is like right now, but it may be worth calling around.

    1. No problem, Aubs! I think photos aren't showing up due to your browser. Firefox just went all wonky on me, but I see everything when I tried Safari. I think it's time I switch over to Google Chrome.

  17. I am trying to figure out if I ever commented on this post...........because I distinctly remember leaving a comment but I guess it all happened in a dream.

    But I had to come back and say I love this outfit. Really. It is freakin' fantastic. Dare I crown this my all-time favorite? And it makes me wonder what happened to my copy of your dress? I was digging around for it last night and couldn't find it. :(

    1. Lol @ the dream comment. I hope the comment didn't somehow make its way to the spam folder and I deleted a bunch without reading (!)

      If you need the dress, feel free to borrow anytime :)
