Modcloth, Dress - Modcloth, Necklace - Whimsy & Grace, Shoes - thrifted.
Back in February I was a bridesmaid at the wedding of one of my best friends. We were given a brief for choosing our own bridesmaid dresses, and I picked this Modcloth beauty. I was willing to pay a little extra on a dress that I thought I would wear beyond the wedding, and I thought this one was super cute.
This was my first ever Modcloth purchase, and I was pretty happy with it. I liked it just as much in person, and enjoyed wearing it at the wedding. Buuuuut, since then I have definitely associated this dress 100% with all things wedding, and have never even considered wearing it again. A few days ago I realised how silly this was, and so I've been working on finding new ways to style the dress, that don't make me feel like I'm playing dress-ups in a bridesmaid dress.
Chucks and a cardigan made a perfect casual/pretty combo for a Friday night Potluck Dinner Party with friends, and this is definitely the sort of combo I would wear again. And considering I have a drawer full of cardigans, and several different coloured pairs of chucks, I can easily mix it up a bit. I am still determined to find more ways to wear this dress, and get my moneys worth out of it (US shipping is not cheap).
