Men Amaze to Win the Palm, the Oak, the Bays


Most of the time my clothes receive approval from my friends and family, while occasionally they remark, "I wouldn't wear that, but it's cool enough." Sometimes however an item gets more head scratches than bemused acceptance. This dress falls into the latter category. People thought it was a bit too ruffly and wondered if the pink trim matched the blue and white print. But ahem, see how perfectly the dress matches my accessories? If it wasn't meant to be why would I already have the perfect shoes and purse to wear with it, hm? My favorite detail about the dress however is the way it moves. It makes me want to go dancing.

I actually really love that dress!! The ruffles and how it flows are fantastic. Your shoes and accessories are awesome too. I'd wear heels (same colour) and nylons with it, but that's just my style.
I love your style and totally envy your varied collection of dresses. You're pretty awesome!

I've also worn some head-scratchers haha so I can appreciate that. I think maybe it's that this dress wants to be strapless. If the ruffled bit were the top, it would have a perfectly vintage silhouette. I can appreciate that they were trying to do something different though. Also, I'm a bit late to the party, but I've just been catching up on your blog and wanted to say congrats on your engagement! Hope the wedding planning and move to Ireland both go smoothly! :)

Oh my gosh, I love it! It's so beautifully feminine. See, you can't always listen to friends and family ;). I often go through the same thing, but in the end I wear what I like.

I don't understand why this dress wouldn't get rave reviews. I think that it looks amazing on you! I also personally love ruffles, and I especially love the way that it moves.

Haha, oohh, people and their silly desire for everything to "match". ;) The blush color looks beautiful with the blue/white I think! I adore this dress and how you styled it!

I always get bummed out when people around me say they don't like a certain item - it makes me doubt my taste and I wish it weren't so. Good for you, wearing whatever you like/think suitable!

I think that dress is incredible! and it looks fantastic on you. I love its flouncy-ness. :)

my family, especially, is the same way when it comes to my "style"; they're more jeans-and-tshirts people. but if everyone dressed the same- whether in jeans or frilly dresses- it would be a lot less fun, right??
