Dress Lover

You might have noticed by now that I have a love for dresses. This was not always the case but as I have gotten older and more confident in my style the more I have grown to love a beautiful dress. I used to feel like I was too dressy but now I think that’s why I like them. I have such an appreciation for beautiful clothing. It really is like artwork! And you have to admire all of the hard work that the designers and seamstresses put into their creations. That’s why I have a serious obsession with Christy Dawn. I’ve talked about their designs here but I could not contain myself when I saw this beautiful dress on their website.

Something I think Christy Dawn does so well is making dresses that women of all style backgrounds want to wear. They are soft and feminine while still being edgy and cool, which is always a difficult thing to achieve. I really love how unique each piece is. It’s the reason I love fashion. When an outfit makes you feel something, you know its special. It goes back to me feeling too dressy or like I stood out too much if I wore a pretty dress or a flowy skirt just out to run my errands. Yes, clothes are practical but fashion is fun! Now I love feeling dressy because it makes every day feel different.

Clothes can give you such confidence so why wouldn’t you want your wardrobe to be filled with only the best!? For me, I am always comfortable in a wrap dress. It’s such a universally flattering silhouette. It highlights a natural waist (for an hourglass figure like me that is always important) and elongates the legs. The flow of the fabric along the skirt and the ruffle sleeves are such fun details that add just a little more femininity to the dress.

Christy Dawn uses all deadstock fabric which is fabric that is left over from larger fashion houses so that the fabric is not left in a landfill. All of their selections are beautiful! Each print is so unique and fits the dresses perfectly. I also love this dress in the black floral.

My trusty Cuyana bag and lace up sandals complete this look for my everyday errands but I can easily pair a great heel like these (on sale) with the dress for one of the many summer weddings I have coming up.
