Love and Springtime

Head to Toe: Dress, C/O dresshop.ca; Blazer, Thrifted; Cuff, Loft; Shoes, Nine West - Thrifted.

May is almost upon us, and that also means the dawn of wedding season. A surplus of photo-heavy events leaves us with the burning question: What to wear? I love this dress for its surprising versatility. With a colorful blazer, like my pink one, it's perfect for a daytime wedding or shower (The color is more of a champagne, in case your gasping about wearing white to a wedding...If you're still gasping, it comes in a lot of other colors). Style with a black blazer or wrap for a nighttime event, and switch the pumps for slingbacks.

On another note, if you ask any stylist what the key is to a good silhouette, they will say good tailoring. I am embarrassed to admit that I had never had anything custom-fit before this dress (all of Dresshop's styles are custom made to order). This dress literally fits like a glove, and even has a bra strap built-in so no hiking necessary. I am officially a tailoring convert!
