Dress – c/o Simply Dresses  //  Shoes – Call It Spring  //  Necklace – F21
There was something very appealing about choosing a Simply Dresses dress that contrasted so much in design and color.  The design is bold and sexy, and the rich chocolate color I chose is so demure that I think the whole piece strikes a great balance.  As always this dress is impeccably made. The material is so rich and the layers underneath fill everything out perfectly.  I particularly appreciate the bust support added to the front.  I’m not superbly endowed so I don’t have to have a special undergarment, but the touch of padding to shape the dress is an appreciated touch so as not to show too much.  It’s the little details like this that make me love the dress.
From the front, the dress is deceptively ladylike, and it’s not until you turn around to walk away that you leave a bit of sass in your wake.  I’d like to think it’s a great reflection of the sides of myself, ladylike and demure with well, another side to me as well.
And as always, you have to have a great cover all and shades for the after, after party.  Where ever that might be.
