ribbon belt: gap
flats: dolce vita
i love the way these pictures came out. the bright purple dress looks even more vibrant juxtaposed against the brown, gray and black background. caroline came over for dinner tonight and it is so fun to have her take my photos! clearly she has a real photographer's eye.
if you are ever struggling to figure out how to rewear a dress you bought for a wedding, have i got an idea for you. make it a jumper! it's so easy to throw a turtle neck or tee under a lower cut dress and make it completely work appropriate. in this case, the length of the dress was also a bit short. i went with some very thick black ribbed tights to take away from the length and i think it worked very well. i chose a ribbon belt to accentuate my waist and give the dress more shape.
