With wedding season in full swing, ball season starting and for all those summer events, we seem to always be looking for a dress to wear! We want something chic enough for the event but comfortable enough to wear all night! Sexy enough to feel feminine but elegant enough to emanate sophistication! And we want that little something extra to express our one-of-a-kind personality! Decisions! Decisions! Decisions! Women! Women! Women ;)
The outfit I am posting today is just about that! It’s one of my go-to dresses for this busy period of the year. The first attribute that attracted me to this gown was the playful summery peach color! There was my pop of personality :) Even though it’s a hot shade, it has a pastel tone to it, which I believe brings a touch of softness. The light fabric is perfect for sunny summer days and the flowy cascading silk crepe ideal to twirl in on a hot dance all night kind of evening! I also very much enjoyed the graceful asymmetrical cut. I find it makes the dress more versatile. You can wear it to a fancy charity event or to a rehearsal dinner without feeling overdressed! And ladies, the loose fit allows you to indulge in your favorite sweets all night (I know i will!) without feeling compressed in your dress ;) Amen to that!
When wearing a bold color, I like to keep my accessories neutral and in metallic tones. You can’t go wrong with gold or silver! For a warm color like orange, I personally prefer to focus on gold. Can you mix metallics? I have no problem with that, as you can see! I believe it's a myth to think you can't! Nowadays, there are no fashion rules! To accessories this simple dress, I opted for three statement pieces. It's all about balance. An Aztec gold/silver necklace with small gold crystal earrings. A modern laser cut gold bracelet with delicate chain bracelets and rings. And strappy gold stilettos for a sexy shiny kick. By the way, those are my most comfortable sandals of all time! I can dance the night away wearing them and still want to go on :) And... They are simply gorg! Don’t you think?
I am ready to party! Let’s enjoy those last summer days! Look hot doing it! And, love and live life to the fullest!
