Pretty Dress

I love pretty dresses.  I mean, we all love pretty dresses but I really like them.  I spent a lifetime in boring menswear so I view dresses with great fervor.

I'm entranced by the colors and print of this beauty.  It mesmerizes me.  The dress is so special by itself that, other than adding a scarf as a belt, I present it without adornment.

What do you think?

  2. Love it! I think you did the right thing by keeping it simple. Take off the tights, though! We want to see yer fab legs.

  3. Ally! This dress is fantastic! You've been really on a role lately with your outfits, I've been loving them all! I love the colors in this - greens, browns and oranges - could it be more perfect for Autumn? Love.

  4. This is a fabulous silhouette; I love where you've positioned the sash and I love the flare of the hem. I like the hosiery (sorry Ashley :-) along with the shoes, too. Delicious colors top it off. Sweet!!!

  5. Polka dot trend right on !
    I learned to love dressed about 5 or 6 years ago, before that I'd never be seen in a skirt or a dress... i was a just jeans and t shirt person.
    I think i would like to see you in a long gown... hair up do and a tiara- i think you would rock it.

  7. I love this dress! Very cute. It looks great with the scarf; I thought it was part of the dress until I read otherwise. An excellent pairing :)

  9. Love the colors in this dress. It does look great on you, especially where the sash is positioned. the only thing you would need to finish it off is a beautiful handbag.

  11. Ally, you look so pretty and like you'd be enormous fun at a party. I love the wide empire waistband, as well as the sheer tights and matching shoes. I'd also love a closer look at that wonderful cuff. You know I like my bling :P

  12. I love the colors on this dress and love that you added the sash! It's a super-flattering cut on you as well.

  13. The colors are so gorgeous! I probably would have run right up to that dress in a store and snapped it up. I love brightly colored modgirl prints. The scarf works great as a belt. I should try that with some of my scarves.

  15. What a fun print! Your lipstick is a very complimentary shade (love that close up) and the bracelet is beautiful with it as well.

  17. Pretty dresses are awesome! I love throwing one on and you're done. You're right that your dress doesn't need a necklace. It's pretty enough on it's own. Yay orange!

  18. This dress is totally beautiful on you, Ally! You are correct that it needs nothing further than the scarf and bracelet, which do a wonderful job of lighting it up, it's a really special piece. Nicely done!

  19. Adorable dress! Love the colorful polka dots. I'd pair it with colored tights, boots and a denim jacket for fall.
