You have NO idea how excited I am to share today’s find of the day post. I recently got this stunning maxi from Red Dress Boutique, and it was honestly love at first sight. Everything from color to design was very me, and I loved that it was sexy yet elegant.
I knew it’d be great for an editorial-style shoot so I hit up two of my very talented friends for a collab. A HUGE shoutout to Sandross Alim for the bomb photography and Valerie Hammer for my makeup/hair styling. I really can’t recommend them enough!
$66 may seem expensive for a dress, but this special occasion piece won’t really ever go out of style. I own it in both black and pink so that should say something! Standout features include a plunging v-neck, double slit, ruched bodice, mesh overlay and adjustable criss-cross spaghetti straps.
It’s made of 100% polyester, and it’s available in a slew of other colors as well. I personally also like teal, white, navy and burgundy so maybe I’ll get those in the future? Which color do you guys like best? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
I love everything about this dress, but there is one thing you should be aware of: length. It’s very, VERY long – even with sky high heels – which makes walking difficult. When the pandemic ends, I’m planning on taking this to the tailor, but sometimes shortening a dress looks funny so we’ll see what happens.
For today’s look, I threw on a lace duster on top and accessorized with embellished heels and a layered necklace. Bold jewelry would also look amazing though so feel free to experiment. It all just depends on the vibe you’re going for.
Alright friends, that’s a wrap for today! I’ll be sharing a bunch more from said shoot so definitely stay tuned for more. I also have a Richmond travel guide scheduled as well so that’s something to look forward to. Sending you guys big e-hugs! Have a great week, friends.
