I’m girly girl all the way when it comes to fashion. One of the things I have always had a penchant for are dresses. To me, I don’t believe anything exudes femininity any better than a modest yet sexy dress that has vintage appeal. As Sophia Loren once famously quoted: “A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.”
I immediately fell in love with the Border Print Dress by Ronni Nicole ($49.99) at first
site sight. The colors and the pattern are bold, vivid, and indirectly pay homage to the fun and free-spiritedness of the mod 60s. This wrinkle-free knit dress is made from soft, lightweight, and non-clinging material to ensure a proper and comfortable fit. Some of us may not have Jillian Michaels abs, but this dress is non-clinging with a bold design that will make those body flaws pull a Houdini.
Shoes: Ms. MaryMac “Tange” Pumps – these “one of a kind” shoes were just made for me!
Hat: Kardashian Kollection Floppy Hat – originally $67, I bought this hat for just $7 at Sears.
Sunglasses: I’m unsure of the brand, but I bought them on sale for $8 at Target.
Handbag: Gida Bavari “Kayla” Crossbody Velour Suede ($280)
The Crochet Back Tank Dress ($49.99) is a flattering piece that hugs the figure appropriately without being tight and uncomfortable. Featuring a sweet and simple black bodice, the beautiful crochet detailing on the back and flowing tribal print rayon skirt are the obvious headliners. It’s great to wear for casual stroll at the park or a night on town with statement accessories, such as a bold cuff and wedges.
Shoes: Carlos Santana “Groove” Parrot Blue Open Toe Suede Platforms Sandals Shoes – Depending on the retailer, these pumps normally retail for $40 – $100, but I bought them at TJ Maxx for $15.
