Fit and Flare Dress

The funnest part about fashion is indulging in versatility. One day I'm in a casual safarish outfit and the next I'm prim and proper in a fit and flare polka dot dress!

The back story: I had ordered a cute Dorothy Perkins dress for my friends' wedding but due to it being international shipping (which I didn't know at the time) the dress didn't make it in time! What to do? I ran into Forever 21 like a maniac and I magically came across this dress. When I tried it on I was sold! It's fitted (check!), elegant (check!), polka dots (double check!) and has pockets (bonus check!). The fit-and-flare dress has a flattering and elegant silhouette and it reminds me of something Betty Draper would wear.

About the Outfit:
Dress: Forever 21
Cuff: Ann Taylor
Clutch: DKNY
Because of the pattern, I kept the accessories to a minimum with these pearl string earrings and this cuff from the Ann Taylor event goodie bag.
 ☮ & ♥,
Pau
