A few weeks ago, I wrote about one of my best friend’s wedding weekend. In it? The debut of the little black dress that has stolen my heart!

Let me introduce you to a designer I have been following for a little over a year now, Alexia Maria. Odds are if you have an affinity for all things classic, feminine, and fun, you are going to love her designs.

From ball gowns with stunningly-timeless silhouettes to cocktail dresses with gorgeous detailing and even convertible jumpsuits fit for a princess, her collection is fresh and absolutely fabulous. I am truly obsessed!

After a lot of scheming and a bit of saving, I finally decided to splurge on the juliette dress in a classic black. I didn’t have a formal little black dress in my wardrobe, and with lots of rehearsal dinners ahead I knew I would get plenty of wear out of it. I can truly say this Alexia Maria dress now one of my very favorite pieces that I own, and I’m just itching for an excuse to wear it again!

Here are two photos from the first time I wore it…

Do yourself a favor and check out the entire collection here!

Love from Texas,

    I think this dress fits you SO PERFECT. I love it on you. Can I ask where that black bag you have in the last pictures is from? I’ve been looking for a small bag like that and have some weddings coming up!
