A simple detail...

Hello my lovely friends and readers,
Hope you all had a wonderful long weekend.
Mine was hectic but so much fun with a  party, a cultural program, a short road trip and shopping.




Sometimes simplicity steals your heart and that is exactly what happened to me when I saw this dress at  OASAP. The crochet neckline was the only simple detail in this solid navy dress and was enough to make an impression. The other interesting feature of this dress is that the moment I received it, I literally tore the packaging in excitement and put on the dress but in the rush I wore it back side front and it looked great that way too!
I wanted to maintain the simplicity of the dress and pearls are the epitome of simple elegance. Hence some pearl bracelets, a little pop of red and a neutral, less feminine satchel. It was a windy day and it was difficult to capture the flaps, in the front, lying flat. After much struggle with the gusty wind,  we some how managed a couple clicks and celebrated our triumph with some delicious Thai food and some good shopping (wink)!

Tell me, how did you spend your long week end?




                                                                        What I Am Wearing:
                                                                            dress- Thanks to  OASAP (buy it  here)    bag- Steve Madden    belt- F21
                                                                            aviators and watch- Guess    flats- Old Navy    bracelets- gift, Charlotte Russe

  6. I'm glad you had a good time during the long weekend! And you definitely have a great taste! This is such a beautiful dress: the color, the lace detail on the collar and the flaps are just gorgeous. I also love how you kept everything else very simple to let the dress shine. You look adorable, Juneli!
