Holy moly, this dress called to me in a way I can’t even explain when I saw it.  It was part ModCloth, part Anthropologie, part JCrew and frankly I couldn’t pass it up…. especially for under $35.  It comes in 5 colors and patterns to fit so many different people’s tastes but the key to how amazing this dress is is the fit!!

This super cinched and fitted waist line is EVERYTHING!  It will give you the Monroe hourglass shape of your dreams.  It nips in at literally the perfect spot to make your waist look as small as possible, then flares out with out giving the horrible maternity look everyone dreads and does no one favors.  The sweetheart neckline compliments the neckline giving the correct emphasis without showing off too much but still creating the ideal shape.  The what seems to be 1/2 circle skirt floats away perfectly from the body hiding any hips or tummy area  that anyone might not love so much and creates a fun, femine and girly shape and feel.  It’s the perfect dress and shape for twirling.

I can’t talk about this dress and skip over the fabric.  It’s so incredibly soft and flowy that it deserves a mention in itself. The fabric choice adds perfectly to the feminine draping and flow of the skirt giving it that great feel that any other fabric might have detracted from.  Overall the dress itself is a SLAM DUNK and a must have.  I would have been kicking myself if I left without purchasing it. I get so many compliments and people thinking it’s far more expensive than it actually was every time I’ve worn it.

When I styled this dress I wanted to keep it really simple and girly.  These wedges are hands down my favorite pair, no question.  They are super comfortable and then style makes your legs look a million miles long so they are a win in my book.   Wedges vs heels keep it looking more casual but more upscale and dressier than just a basic sandal.

A nice pink pop of color with a fun twist bracelet and fan earrings completed this look to balance out all of the neutrals, and FYI that are both well under $20!  A perfect and practical woven bag and this outfit is ready for any event this summer.
