A Perfect Navy Cocktail Dress

November 9, 2014


Based on the response on instagram yesterday I think it's safe to say this navy dress was a good buy!  I literally popped into the store just to try it on in person after eyeing it for weeks online and fell in love!  And then I walked away.  Down two flights of stairs to be exact.  Because that's what I do.  Even when I fall in love with something and I have a specific occasion to wear that something too, like a fancy cocktail party + a wedding, I can't always justify the cost.  I really don't take big purchases like this lightly.  But I couldn't get it out of my head so I walked back up and tried it on again and knew it was a too good to walk away from a second time.

I can't wait to wear it to an upcoming wedding in Charleston!  It's so lady-like and the silhouette is incredibly flattering.  I'll be able to eat and dance and bend over to tend to my littles and still look incredibly polished.  Plus it has pockets that can hold a cell phone and lip gloss without interrupting the lines of the skirt. That's genius.  I'm not usually one to post instgram photos on my blog but it might be a while before I can photograph this beautiful dress properly and I didn't want to wait on sharing this goodness!

  6. Wow, it looks much better on you than on the model. I would have skipped over it if I'd seen the Nordstrom pic first. Such a pretty dress!

  8. The last 3 dresses I've bought have been by Eliza J - from Tyson's Nordstrom, too. I bought that one and then returned it because it didn't look as cute on me as it does you (I'm a bit more hippy). I'm a big fan of the quality of her (?) dresses for the price point. That dress - the fabric, details and construction - is as nice as dresses twice the cost from Neimans. Good buy!

  9. So incredibly flattering on you! Next time, think of your time as equally valuable, and when you know it looks this great (and you are shopping for that specific occasion!!)-- buy it then. It's a no brainer when it looks this good.
