Although I have previously professed my love for little white dresses (here), I only had a white sheath (worn at our vow renewal ceremony). While I loved the one I already owned, I was craving a more casual sundress style. And I kept coming back to this picture of Eva Mendes in her eyelet lace Dolce & Gabbana version.
Knowing that July brings major markdowns on summer inventory at most stores, I decided it was the perfect time to search. This silhouette is a little more “sweet” than I normally go for, but I knew I could add a belt & some edgy accessories to help balance it out.
