chiffon tiers






Outfit Details:
Jill Stuart Dress - Beacon's Closet
blazer - c/o Elie Tahari
pyramid bracelets - Forever 21
bow bracelet - Guess, gift from my sister and brother in law
Carol Marie hinged bangle - c/o Carol Marie
rings - Forever 21
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac - c/o Rebecca Minkoff
DVF Opal Platforms - c/o DVF

When not belted, and worn on a breezy day, this dress can make a person look pregnant. It's probably my subconscious reason for wearing it to my best friend's baby shower, right? To feel like I fit in? Regardless, I love this dress - it might be the best $29 I've spent in a long time, because it's my go-to for easy breezy dresses that can be worn in a lot of different ways. I've never been one to dress according to what's conventionally flattering, so despite the fact that people might assume I'm expecting when they see me in this dress, I still feel good in it. There's something about flowy chiffon tiers that makes you feel pretty great.

  1. I had a similar realization the other day while thrift shopping. I always avoided even the prettiest empire waist tops because I felt they make me look pregnant, despite my sister's assurances that they don't. This past weekend, I found one I love and bought it anyway. Cheers to fashion that makes you smile! =)

  2. i absolutely love this dress, and i'm not a maxi-kinda gal. it could be the print? and the general beautiful flowiness?

    i feel like you may have worn it before in another style post... or perhaps it was another one. either way, i love it! x

  22. Lovely and floaty! It looks fantastic - but I know what you mean about the pregnancy look - I've unwittingly done it many times. The photo viewing afterward only reveal my folly.

  46. Hi! I've just discovered your blog, which is full of such fabulousness! Would it be rude to ask where you got your glasses from. I've been hunting everywhere for some specs exactly like this but to no avail.
    Thanks!
