19 May Fancy Footloose + Free
Isn’t it always the case, that when you need a fancy dress, formal gown, or dressy number that there seems to be NOTHING that speaks to you. So frustrating 😡
With that in mind, you can see why I justified purchasing this beautiful off white, flowy goddess dress without any upcoming function or event on the horizon🙈
I stood in one of my favorite local clothing shops (Art of Style) for 45 minutes taking pictures, rationalizing, and asking girlfriends if this was a good buy. It was finally Dustin (the always has my best shopping interest in mind), that gave me the push to go for it.
So 5 months later, there she sat…. burning a hole in my closet. I had gone to several events, all of which had been weddings. And everyone knows, if you show up in anything remotely close to white, you might loose a limb via the bride. Finally the event of all events came down the pipeline….I had been invited to my friend Lucus’s Wedding. He and his now husband, Chris, didn’t give a flip about old “never wear a white dress to a wedding” traditions… And I love them for that! I was suuuuper excited to have an excuse to be extra fancy amongst friends.
If you’ve never shopped at The Art of Style, and you are a local here in Raleigh, make sure to skim through their new spring collection. It’ll make you swoooooon.. Their flow is a mix of on trend geometrics, with a soft twist of free people flow.
Dress is Sold Out, but check out their new collection here.
