Dress – c/o DressStore // Necklace – eBay // Scarf – Unknown
Just recently I was contacted about doing a few reviews for the DressStore website. It’s a site the specializes in formal, prom, homecoming, and fancy cocktails dresses. I liked the idea of playing with gowns that I don’t normally get a chance to wear. For my first piece I selected this lovely claret chiffon gown.
The quality is to die for. It has boning and so many layers. It feels like a really durable piece. Further, I love the color. I think I may have to wear this color always. I may even have to get every dress I ever own in this color. I just love the combo of the red with the flowing nature of the dress.
Obviously, I’ve styled this down in a breezy, almost casual, way. It’s certainly not a casual dress. It’s something I can imagine wearing on a red carpet. What I like about it is that it’s glamorous and red carpet worthy without being over the top. Over the top has it’s place, but when I saw this dress I imagined a wilderness shoot, so flowy and delicate were on deck.

The gown, and the way you wear it, is glamorous while STILL being freespirited / pastoral / wild. If I were to encouner a nymph or elf-maiden somewhere in the wilderness, I might imagine her dressed like this.
