DETAILS. DETAILS. DETAILS. Details are what turn an average black dress into a "WOW"! This dress has lots of details that I love. First? The scalloped edges. This dress is pretty basic in terms of shape, neckline and colour but the scalloped edges make it stand out. A scalloped edge is fun and flirty and makes an otherwise casual dress instantly dressier! I love that I can wear this dress to church, to work or dressed up to a casual wedding. Second? I love the material. This dress was super cheap but you wouldn't know it from the fabric. It's very smooth, super black and has just enough stretch to hug the body nicely without making me look like an encased sausage! Third? I love the length. Even though I'm only 5'4" tall, dresses that I I order from online manufacturers (like boohoo, romwe etc. ) are often way too short for me! This dress was a pleasant surprise. It hits above the knee, but not too far above that I'm afraid of it riding up or looking slutty. SCORE! :)
I paired this dress with my silver sandals, a long necklace from Banana Republic (to create a long line down the front of my body) and my classic pearl earrings! The dress and necklace are feminine and pretty but the shoes- with their chunky low heel and metallic colour- provide an edgy element that I love! I think this dress would look just as great with a cropped denim jacket and converse shoes OR with an accent choker necklace and nude stilettos.
