This is by far, my dress of the summer. I purchased it at Victoire, an Ottawa boutique, a few months early knowing that it would come in handy. I have worn it to two different weddings this summer, and hope to get some more mileage on it at work. It’s just so… Darling! Well, it is after all a Darling dress. It was from the same collection as this little number.
The floral details are crisp and bright. They hit the nail on this one. The bright colours and the cut of the dress are absolutely flattering on any skin tone. The pleated front of the skirt, including shallow pockets, offers a nice distraction and helps to hide my “post-pregnancy” pooch. The caps on the sleeves add a lovey structured but feminine touch. The skirt hits me just above the knee, which is the optimal spot on my legs, and helps to make me look tall and slender.
I paired the dress with some navy heels from Winners and my favourite silver Ela clutch, purchased on consignment in a Vancouver shop called Mine and Yours. I did my own up-do and had a really good makeup day. My Laura Mercier Paint Wash lipstick in ‘Fuchsia Mauve’ really tied it all together! My last accessory was my handsome date/husband/arm candy of the evening.
I have my 4th wedding of the summer in September, but I have another trick up my sleeve for this one, so stay tuned! Wholly weddings, Batman!!
