Real Charm

Pretty bold. The sketched ring print on this dress is an attention-grabber, but the dress’s more subtle details bring the real charm. Features like cool cap-sleeves, flattering shirring at the bodice and waist, and a sweetheart v-neck line are quite appealing. The dress is worn casually with burnt orange peep-toe flats.

    You’re right, great details.
    I love those little details that give a piece it’s own sytle.
    The orange shoes are a good splash.

    Don’t you just love spring time. being able to wear open-toe shoes and dresses without having to hide your outfits under a coat. This looks great. Also I love how you have continuously incorporated the orange shoes. Not many people can pull that off with so many outfits.

    Seeker: Thanks. It’s all about the detail, right.

    Enc: I appreciate that. Thanks for the recommendation way back about posting close-ups.

    Diva: Oh yes. And, I am so happy to welcome spring (after all the weather ups and downs) and spring clothing. Those orange shoes have so become my new neutral shoe 🙂

    Nic: I almost missed out on it too, for I was waiting for a markdown. Luckily there was one left in my size when it went on sale. It is so easy to wear. Thanks for coming by!
