Belle of the Ball


I can't even explain to you how long I've wanted to wear this dress! I've been super obsessed with it forever so as soon as the Fall weather began making waves I had to slip into it. What better place to wear a beautiful dress than to D.C's very own Botanical Gardens? This piece of paradise downtown is the perfect place for a city girl to escape into to see a little more green for a change! 

This dress gives me soooo many Old Hollywood vibes with the ruffles and high slit. I also initially bought this dress because I'm obsessed with oxblood but in the right lighting you can see it's actually more of a jewel tone. I think that's the direction my A/W color palette will be taking. Jewel tones just looks AMAZING against darker skin! So, you'll definitely catch me in this dress again as many Fall events are coming up. It's also a great option for a NYE party. If you can still track down this dress, trust me when I say it's a must-have. You will be the belle of the ball!
