No way to kick off the start of a new week quite like with a hot pink ruffled dress, am I right? Just setting the mood, y’all. Summer’s right around the corner! :)
When I first shared a peek at this glamorous magenta and gold ensemble, I got so many questions about the hot pink dress. I had purchased it from Shopbop about a month or so ago, and it had sold out quickly. But I have the best news… I’ve found it fully in-stock in all sizes from one of my favorite retailers HERE!
Fun fact: It’s designed to tie at the shoulders, but I tucked the back two straps into the dress and tied the front two around my neck for a halter look. Love that you can create two different looks this way!
You can’t tell in these photos, but the ends of each tie end in a gorgeous gold beaded fringe. (Seen here.) I had fun playing into that detail with a few more gold accessories of my own, including the elegant Greta necklace, super popular Nadene earrings and the Rumer ring from my collection with Accessory Junkie.
One final random but fun note about this dress… I was wearing it at about 10am (casual, casual) at the Four Seasons Orlando photographing a few pieces from my collection when I ran into two of my long-time favorites… Sarah and Keil Patrick! At first, I didn’t recognize them because of the masks and because, well, the last place I expected to see these New Englanders was in sunny Florida! But when I put everything together, I nearly lost my mind. :) SUCH a huge treat to meet two of the first bloggers/Instagrammers I ever followed! You’ll find Sarah’s blog here and Sarah and Keil’s fashion brand here!
Love from the Sunshine State,
