[On Julia: H81 dress, Tory Burch Reva Jelly Flats, Tiffany Pendant Necklace, vintage bracelet]
Out with it: I have an obsession with Forever 21, I admit it. Many friends and concerned loved ones have tried to break me of it, but I just can’t stop going back to the site or store, especially when I find amazing vintage-inspired looks such as this dress! The color is quite phenomenal, and the fit is rather flattering.
Even though the skirt portion is short, it’s got a nice, comfy elastic waistband, and graciously bubbles out a bit, with the chest yoke, ruffles, and buttons helping to draw attention upward. I couldn’t find the exact version online, but came close — the H81 Side Button Dress, $22.80, in a chambray-like fabric is equally as chic. As you can see in the pic, I go for drama with the bright flats, but play it more simple on top with a simple, heart-shaped pendant necklace. Skip the statement jewelry with this dress, and merely let the dress’ bodice details do the talking.
