When I say “this is my favorite dress EVER” that is not an exaggeration!! I was shopping with the three littles and my Mom one afternoon while the husband was out of town and we were literally getting ready to walk out of the mall when I SAW THIS!!! I could not stop staring at the details on the back of the dress…the braids, the bows and open back.
It was love at first sight. Dramatic I know, but I knew I had to have it and, honestly, as much as I love clothes and fashion, I know I can live without them all. BUT, I hadn’t seen anything like the back of this dress before and I knew I would have major regret if I didn’t get it. PLUS, I had the perfect event to wear it to…I had a wedding coming up at the time and I wanted something special to wear, this was it 🙂
I wore it to that wedding and truly felt like a million bucks. I cannot wait to wear this dress over and over and over again!!
I wanted only the back of the dress to stand out, so I chose neutral accessories. I adored the Stella & Dot Chantilly Lace cuff and earrings with it…enough shine to be seen, but not too much to be the superstar. And, I feel like the beige/taupe/natural heels and clutch complimented the dress perfectly.
I found this dress at Take 5 Boutique in Tyson’s Corner Mall, in Northern VA. The customer service at this boutique was incredible…by the time I left, I felt like I had made new friends with the husband and wife owners. And their two young daughters help keep my kiddos entertained while I tried on this dress and a couple more. Amazing selection!!!
