This dress is so simple, I think I take it for granted, but it really is perfect. I've had it forever. As long as B and I have been together, in fact. For that amount of time, you'd think I would have worn it a million times. In reality, I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I've taken it out. Maybe I should start treating this underrated piece with a little more respect...

There's something that strikes me as very Greek God-like about these shoes. Kind of makes you feel like you're rocking the wings of Hermes when you're wearing them around... Fierceness abounds.

Those shoes are awesome, but they look like 5 minute shoes. Shoes for sitting!

Love the back of the dress, it's really sexy

Gorgeous!! I love that you totally make the outfit with the accessories.. I'm pretty sure I want to sneak into your shoe closet and cross my fingers we're the same size :-P

There is such beauty in the simplicity of the LBD. And your sandals do emulate the wings of a Greek god, they look remarkable!

Ohmygosh, your shoes..! They are so magical. I could stare at them all day long...

And your dress is so naturally elegant and so YOU. I need one like that! I haven't had the best luck with LBDs though. Le sigh.

What a beautiful dress! I still have the jumper I was wearing when I first met my boyfriend (six years ago!). It's worn out but I can't get rid of it because I'm so sentimental.

LyddieGal said...

Sometimes its the simple, elegant pieces that get ignored because we are always seeking things that are over the top. It's good to wear a pretty dress and just let it be a pretty dress.
