All Dressed Up



When it comes to dresses, I typically gravitate towards fit & flare styles, simple sheaths or classic shifts.  But when I came across this midi-length dress, something about the straight modern silhouette appealed to me.  It's completely different from any other dresses I own, with a very sophisticated feel to it.  And thanks to a subtle side slit, it was the perfect choice for a date night in the city on an unusually warm fall evening.





What I'm wearing:
c/o Ann Taylor trench (similar), c/o Sheinside dress (here), Ralph Lauren pumps (via Marshall's; similar), Expressions NYC minaudiére (similar), Ann Taylor cuff (similar), Target sunnies (similar), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Fairest Nude, Nails: Sally Hansen White On

Definitely a unique dress, and I love the sheer bottom and slit, it helps the midi length not feel so overwhelming.
