The Best Dance Dress
Today I am wearing one of my favorite dresses, The Best Dance Dress by Rebecca Beeson. I believe this dress was sold in Anthropologie stores but I was able to snag mine off of eBay for under $50 a few months ago.
This dress is full of amazing embellishments like criss crossed lace, blue velvet trim, a cluster of yo-yo flowers with brass studs and a chiifon under skirt. What more could you ask for?
Over it I threw the short story sweater from DownEast Basics in Navy. I had never thought of pairing the two but the embellishments on both pieces seem to flow together without going too overboard.
Here is a better look at the way the laces crosses under the cardigan:
I have always felt like the fabric bunches a little on me between the x and the cardigan really helped cover that. I should probably see about getting that tailored one of these days.
I hope you all enjoy your Veterans Day. Hopefully some of you have the day off!
p.s. I have some news regarding a Pre-Sale coming at Macy's for the Family & Friends Sale event.
