a magnificent magenta

The color of this dress.

I feel like I could end the post there. It’s THAT amazing, is it not?! I think this may be the most universally-flattering color I’ve yet to come across. It seriously looks incredible on everyone!

DRESS   magenta halter dress   |   SHOES   nude ankle strap wedges   |   EARRINGS   gold lisi lerch earrings   |   CLUTCH   nude tassel clutch   |   BRACELETS gold bamboo bangle (old, similar linked)

From the deep, beautiful hue to the dramatic, billowing cut, this dress is one that leaves a mark. I was pleasantly surprised to find it sitting at just under $100, too! The sweet halter neckline and ruffled, dipped hem all make for a dress that is just plain fun to wear. And in my opinion, dresses that are fun to wear are the only ones worth buying!

On an unrelated note, I had to spill really quick about my new-found favorite accessory line. (This is completely unsolicited – just wanted to share!) You may know Lisi Lerch by the incredibly popular tassel earring you’ve been seeing everywhere lately (I’m wearing them here, here and here to name a few) but I have fallen in love with the elegant statement pieces included in the rest of her line! While I am not a huge accessory girl, as I often find loud jewelry can really take away from a chic ensemble, I’ve found so many pieces of hers that make a statement in a way that only add to the outfit – like the gold drop earrings I’m wearing in todays post!

Wishing everyone a lovely Thursday! The weekend is just around the corner and I can’t wait!

Love from Texas,

Kate
