Best. Dress. Ever.
This has to be the most favorite piece of clothing I own, hands down. (Sorry, wedding dress.) The moment I walked out of Anthropologie, I began dreaming of giant baubles, flirty peep-toes, and the perfect French twist.
A dress this elegant calls for a modern retro look, and I started with the accessories. Instead of a cocktail ring, I went with the cocktail earring. (Is that a thing? It should be.) Vintage-inspired and with a subtle tropical flair, the stones remind me of leafy palm trees. A simple sequined clutch, satin bow slingbacks, and a bold orange lip tie it all together.
I envisioned a graceful updo, but something a little less polished. Dare I say it, even a little messy. This updated French twist has all the drama and none of the fussiness of my grandma’s era. A melon manicure polished to perfection keeps the retro vibe in full swing.
And you know, it just doesn’t get better than sequins and stripes.
