There is something so dreamy about this dress which was dubbed a “wedding dress” by my girls when they saw it. Perhaps it is the tiers of lace and ruffles that make it such a beauty, but I’ll have to admit, I did feel like quite the princess bride wearing it. I love the shorter front skirt of this dress because as someone who is height challenged like myself, this hemline creates the illusion of longer legs. The length of this dress is perfect, even in flats, because it barely skims the floor so you won’t get it dirty as you glide into a room.
Surprisingly enough I opted to not wear heels with this dress because truth be told, I was dying to break in these new gladiator sandals from M. Gemi that I just got. This dress could be worn with heels or with sandals like these, and either way it would look amazing. The dress itself has a lace up front and while one may think you can’t double dip on the lace ups, the design of the sandals and the flow and ethereal style of the dress complement each other well. Donning these lace up sandals I definitely felt like I was ready for a garden party (minus the bra which I should have taken off – oops). With wedding season upon us, this dress would make the perfect shower, brunch, or tea party look.

Style Tip | An asymmetrical hem or long slit always helps to create the illusion of longer legs. Also, lose the bra if you’re wearing a plunge neck lace up top (lesson learned the hard way).
