Romantic Ruffles Dress

Romantic Ruffles Dress

A fantastic way to wear a dress but not show too much skin is choosing something with a high-low hem. This dress from Pink Rust Boutique is a prime example! The cascading ruffles and high-low cut of the skirt  give it the right amount of flirt and movement. It shows just the right amount of bare leg and leg behind a sheer veil of fabric. The braided empire waistline and braided sash also give this dress a Grecian vibe and a nice, refined touch. I also love that it’s a one shoulder style, perfect for showing off a sunkissed glowy collarbone and décolleté. Let us not forget the gorgeous navy color that isn’t your typical spring color, but is at the heart of all things nautical. Can’t you just imagine wearing this on a yacht somewhere? I can, dipped in gold accessories, wearing a floppy hat, with a glass of white wine in hand. I absolutely adore this piece and think it’ll work for so many occasions all spring and summer long. Be sure to follow Pink Rust Boutique on Facebook for giveaways and new adorable additions to their online store!

Shoshanna Lilac Draped One Shoulder Dress

Shoshanna Lilac Draped One Shoulder Dress

The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and dates are saved. That can only mean one thing… wedding season is upon us, bringing on the need for darling dresses to cry, toast and dance away the evening in. I am nothing short of in love with this lilac-periwinkle dress by Shoshanna. The soft draping, delicate pleating, and one shoulder are all the right feminine elements that make this one classy dress. Pairs up perfectly with flesh-toned heels and a floral clutch. Just don’t forget the waterproof mascara.

West Village Fete Dress

West Village Fete Dress

Thinking about wearing this dress on New Years Eve? Color me green with envy. It’s been a while since I’ve written about a one-shoulder dress, so let’s drool over this one together in this week’s edition of Modcloth Monday. This dress, which pays homage to one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC, incorporates a simple but chic sheath shape with a solid sequin weave throughout. The gorgeous emerald-peridot shade makes for a more subdued dazzle, whereas a gold or silver solid sequin dress may be for the more bold to pull off, but the green really gives you some room to play with shiny accessories and shoes. You may very well find me on NYE in this dress, paired up with metallic peep-toe pumps and elegant drop earrings. Only if Santa brings me a Modcloth gift certificate, that is.

Pewter Than Ever Dress

Pewter Than Ever Dress

For today’s edition of ModCloth Monday, I picked a sleek one shoulder tunic, affordable enough to justify an early holiday gift for yourself. Rock with textured tights, pearls, bangles, bouncy curls, teardrop earrings or a cropped jacket, and make this dress a versatile base garment, a.k.a. a holiday party essential. This is a new MC item, but we know it will sell out quick, so buy it now.

Ebony and Flow Dress

Ebony and Flow Dress

After slipping up a few weeks on ModCloth Monday, we are back with a sleek and always fitting little black dress to share and swoon over with you. But what’s different about this LBD is its versatile neckline which can be altered with just a flick of the chiffon panels. Tie the loose ended chiffon into a bow or twist to switch up the asymmetrical one shoulder neckline to create several different classy variations of everyone’s favorite fashion staple. Plus, you can always use another LBD.

Ascending Pleats One Shoulder Dress

Ascending Pleats One Shoulder Dress

Vintage style, flirty one shoulder dresses aren’t an everyday piece, but this one from ShopRuche is contemporary enough to keep ready hanging in your closet season after season. The funky folds on the top half give it an interesting flair, and the adorable gray micro polka dot skirt adds a dash of dainty femininity. Wear it with ballet flats, strappy sandals or a fun cork or wooden espadrille, but any way you do it, you’ll look tastefully polished.
