This is my favorite dress and if you've been reading for a while you have definitely seen it a few times. I bought it at least five years ago (maybe six?) and I paid full price for it which I never do. But, wow, I have certainly gotten my money's worth out of this fun little BCBG dress:
Everyone should have something like this in their closet - an easy fun dress with a crazy print. BCBG always does it right and their beautiful dress prints are such a favorite. If crazy colors aren't for you, this one comes in black and white. For non-BCBG options this JM Collection print dress is a good kind of crazy and I love this beautiful Lucky Brand dress. And ooh, this Karen Kane print dress would be a good fall-transition dress.
My favorite thing about this dress is that it works with almost any color bag - blue? Red? Purple? It's good to go. I still have visions of purple or blue shoes to wear with it. Maybe something like this sleek pair by Kate Spade? And oooh, I love these mary janes in the purple colorway but that might be too much print. Oh well, it'll just have to be the Chie Miharas then. (I mean, what can you do?) On to details:
I'm doing my usual long pendant necklace. This one is a gold scarab beetle from Banana Republic who's moved onto other wildlife. I do think this scarab necklace is beautiful and this one falls under the "le sigh" category. My bracelet is a Giles and Brother encrusted skinny cortina cuff. This plain gold version is on sale! Great for small wrists.
Blue bag! Mine is MBMJ and it's a good one. You can still occasionally find one on eBay and MJ does really nice blue bags, overall. This midnight blue hobo is on sale! Finally, my sandals are Sam Edelman Trina and they're easy to find on sale right now. The metallic heel just makes them special.
