Wrapping it up!
I really wanted to do a post on this dress because quite simply...I love it and wanted to steer away from the comfy mom looks for a bit. I'm all for comfy and trendy mom looks but we have got to look sexy and sophisticated at times as well! So I chose this wrap dress, because seriously, who doesn't love a great wrap dress?! It's a classic piece that never goes out of style and looks great on any body type. Not to mention they make your waist look tiny whether you're a size 4 or 14. They are great for work, day and night parties, lunches, dinners...and the list goes on! Just switch up the shoes and accessories to accommodate to each event.
This particular wrap dress is from BCBGMaxazria. I purchased it last year during their summer sale. I totally fell in love and my love for it continues to blossom like a beautiful white silky rose in springtime! HAHA! Yes, I love the dress but the best part...I have never worn it!!! Only for our family portraits we took a couple of months ago. I wore light pink peep toe pumps from Bebe and a light pink bubble necklace from Palest Pink.
I'm sure you're wondering why I have never worn it, given I'm soooo in love with it! Well, the answer to that is simple...I've put it on so many times but I never feel like the event is as perfect as the dress. LOL I know it sounds funny, but it's totally the truth. I don't go out very often, so when I do, I want the outfit to be perfect, so many times I overlook some amazing pieces I have sitting in my closet. A little trick for that is to separate some of those versatile, great pieces you have into one section of your closet where you know you will always glance at. This way they'll always be visible to you and won't be lonely and forgotten in the great abyss of your closet.
For my latest styling of this dress, I used these AMAZING cream colored asymmetrical pumps which really brings out all the colors of the dress. It may look pink to the naked eye, but this dress houses lots of fun and bright colors. To make these colors really pop, I added this great peach necklace that keeps the v-neck flowing and a yellow clutch to really bring out those two colors in this dress. (I bet you hadn't noticed the yellow and peach huh?!) It's okay, I hadn't at first either!
Till Next Time!
Have a beautiful and fabulous day!
p.s. I promise I'm working on taking better pictures. For now, thanks to my hubby for taking these and my little sis for the previous ones!
