All Saints Libretto Dress







| Dress: All Saints Libretto Dress | Necklace: Vintage belt worn as a necklace via Treasury (similar necklace) | Pumps: Christian Louboutin Filo Pumps | Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli bag (options one, two & three) |

The Dress

I took a few pictures before and after a fashion show capped off with a night out in Times Square. I picked up this dress on a shopping trip with a few bloggers, editors at Lucky Magazine, and friends from rewardStyle. I was attracted to the color, but was hesitant to try it on because of the loose, parachute shape. I am so glad I did because it's a dress that stands out without being too loud. I would have never picked it out online which reminds me that I need to remember to actually go to stores to shop more often. 

The Necklace

Which brings me to my next piece- the necklace- which is actually a vintage belt from Treasury boutique near U-Street in D.C. I clasped the belt around my neck and let the chain cascade down the back of the dress. This is a case where I think the accessory made the look!

  10. I love the gorgeous silhouette and how the dramatic flare, especially in the first and second photo. I really like how you added that awesome gold chain necklace (which only serves to remind me that I need to get my own!). Love this gorgeous and glamorous look. :)
