recycling in beige

I originally bought this dress while I was in Korea from A-land to wear to a wedding. But I didn't go to said wedding and so I've been trying to find an occasion to break it out. Gilt City is launching in Atlanta, and Jinah and I got our names on an RSVP to the premiere of "Crazy, Stupid Love." (This doesn't guarantee a spot in the theater, so let's see how many women we're going to be fighting to see this film.)

When you first see this dress, you see capped sleeves and think, "No, this is NOT going to work." (Because capped sleeves are NOT your friend.) But once it's on, it transforms into the most spectacular dress in the world for two reasons:

1.) the capped sleeves are not really capped sleeves.
2.) there is more than enough room for stomach elasticity in case you decide to wear this dress to a massive buffet.

  1. Cute dress! And I like how you wore the belt as a necklace.

    "Crazy, Stupid Love" looks like a funny film and I can't wait to watch it either.

  5. That dress is really beautiful on. I love how it's fairly simple yet stands out at the same time. Capped sleeves can go either way. They work on you :) good luck fighting the crowds at the premier!
