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.

Awww, the dress is so cute! I just love it when something has a bunch of interesting elements on it. The flowers are so much fun! I really like the cardigan too!

Speaking of Veteran's Day, I don't have the day off, but I can see and hear my city's Veteran's Day parade from our office! Very cool!
