Long Live The Little White Dress

DSC02840
This post was inspired by the Lucky Community prompt.  Fortunately, I just scooped up this little white dress at Banana Republic last month, and I hadn’t worn it until now…

I’m a huge fan of white dresses, especially in the spring and summer months when it really doesn’t feel right to wear black.  However, my big thing with white is always adding a pop of color.  I can’t do all white…it’s too bland for my taste.  For a flirty white dress, I’m inclined to wear red heels and a red lip, to channel that classic retro vibe.  For this look I also added an emerald green clutch, and kept the rest of my accessories simple.  This particular dress could go for day or night, but here I wore it for an evening dinner in historic Claremont village.

Shoe Love Is True Love

If there’s one fashion item I’m obsessed with most of all, it’s most definitely the shoe.  Shoe’s are sculptural, and I see every style like a work of art.  Plus I’m a shortie, so I rely on heels to make me taller 99% of the time.  I’m constantly trolling the latest styles (both designer and affordable) so I think I’m going to start doing a Tuesday Shoeday segment each week to highlight new finds and top picks.  In this case, I didn’t want to wait because Nordstrom is having their semi-annual clearance sale and one of my favorite (affordable) brands, BCBGeneration, is on clearance.  They make SUPER CUTE shoes for the price, and right now you can score all the styles below for around $60 each.  I have my eye on the red and yellow pairs, but I haven’t splurged yet.

BCBGeneration

Shop these bright spring styles at 40-50% off online at Nordstrom!   

On a side not, I adore Nordstrom because they offer free shipping, free return shipping, and they have a very lenient return policy.  Once I bought a pair of heels so uncomfortable that even I couldn’t bare it.  I brought them back to Nordstrom and received a full refund regardless of the fact that they had been worn.  Their customer service is generally very good.
