There is something about a simple silky slip dress that I have been forever in love with - in fact my first formal dance as a teenager my mom custom made me an off white floor length slip dress...that I probably should have saved given that now it would be completely back in style. That damn hindsight.
Anyway...the dress. I have struggled to find one that fits and is of the right material. Either it's too clingy, too sheer (or both), the wrong length or the wrong color. I honestly gave up looking years ago, and like always, as soon as I stop looking I find things. So when I saw this dress I knew I must give it a try, and let me tell you. It fit like a glove.
The outer shell was fairly sheer but the dress had a thin lining which provided the perfect amount of coverage while giving the piece just enough structure to not cling to every curve. The side slits allowed for it to be a little flowy and made for walking in heels and squeezing into our tiny 2 top table for dinner a breeze.
I also liked the midi length - which is honestly growing on me lately - and with these rose colored suede block heels I was definitely loving the entire ensemble.
In fact, these shoes are my new obsession - AND - I almost didn't get them. Shocking...I know. But I wasn't shopping for them, didn't need them and they weren't on super sale (usually my must haves for shoes). However, breaking the rules for these bad boys was totally worth it and I can easily see them transitioning into the fall season.
Another snazzy detail? The back cut out. I die for a good low back or cut out...
Overall this ended up being an easy to throw together dinner look for our stay in Boston last week and paired with a denim jacket was just right for the fall weather that has seemed to be rolling in.
Even though it's Thursday I am pretending like today is Friday...who else is with me?!
