Outfit of the Week: Spring Fling

With formals and proms right around the corner, I volunteered to accessorize my most favoritest dressy dress, the Dancing At Tiffany’s. (Sorry everyone- as of today it’s sold out, but I’ve got a secret: it’s coming back soon in a new color!) Being a bit well-endowed around the hips, I’m always in search of dresses that compliment my figure. Not only does this dress have a flattering cut, it also has shaping seams inside the bust to keep everything perfectly in place.

I debated about whether to accessorize with floral or peacock-inspired accessories. But in the end, I decided to go with flowers for Spring! I love the way the Porch Swing Peep Toes in Blue match the dress and also add a bit of color to the ensemble. I added the Bestest Buds for a little floral shimmer and the Debutant Ball Gloves for a touch of formality. Finally, I matched the splashes of orange from my shoes with a blue and orange Ariel Comb and the Summer of Love Necklace.

Even though I’m too old for prom, I’m going to wear this dress to my friend’s wedding this summer for a fun and unique look!

    Crystal, you are very cute but I have to tell you – that dress does not look good with those tights and shoes. Or that necklace or those gloves. You should wear a big chunky red necklace and red shoes or something. I am not sure but I do know that the stylist who put you together owes you an apology. Reconsider those accessories before you head out to that wedding.

    I disagree with Goldie…I think this look is great for dressy Spring or Summer events. It’s very playful and fun !

    I agree with goldie that those accessories do not go well with the dress. They take the attention away from the amazing dress, and I’ve never been a fan of white tights. But I do not agree with the red option. The dress should be worn with black patent pumps and delicate accessories. Then the focus would stay on the intricate detail of the bodice.
