Elegant, beautiful, able to dress up or down – for me, those are the keys to a great dress. It’s also my personal opinion that the right dress should completely transform you. You know, take you from the house cleaning kind of Cinderella, to the girl that is ready for the ball. The right dress should do just that, making you feel like a princess – or, in this case, a goddess. This dress is that kind of dress. The second I put it on I just had this sensation of glamorous fall over my body.
The vented front hem gives it sort of a grecian look, and it has the prettiest sheen! The deep slits up either side of the front make it uber sexy, while the conservative neckline adds balance. I styled it with crystal earrings and black heels, but could easily see it with a panama hat and slider sandals.
I’ve been shopping at Banana Republic for quite some time now, so I was thrilled at the opportunity to collaborate with them. (It’s almost entirely what Brandon wears!) I actually stopped in the other day to check out a sale, and fell in love with so many pieces! I picked up this sweater and am totally eyeing this fringe sweater that is currently on sale for $46 bucks!
The sloan pants are some of their best fitting pants, in my opinion. (They make the bootie pop, if you know what I’m saying!) I own them in black and wear them all the time.
Honestly, when it comes to good fitting clothes and even better quality, #itsbanana.
I hope you guys have a great weekend! Brandon and I are having a little date night, and I can’t wait. It’s funny, we go out with friends all the time, or meet each other for lunch, grab dinner together, etc., but it just feels different when you call it a “date night”. Do any of my married ladies feel me?
