off the shoulder midi dress with frills

A true statement piece, this dress includes the biggest trends of the summer. It is a very eye catching piece, definitely something that a fashionista or ladies who love to experiment would appreciate. I find the fabric (combination of cotton and polyester) very comfortable and I appreciate the neutral color paired with the bold frills on the sleeves.

I cannot wear this dress without a belt though. The A-line, roomy design and the length don’t flatter smaller, curvy frames in this case. Plus I wanted add some accessories without making the full look too busy, so I figured getting creative with the belts and adding those heelusions would add personality to this dress without being overwhelming.

    Wow Bogi! I just think you look fab in everything you wear. This is no exception.
    Of course I love the bell sleeves, the ots look and subtly patterned shoes. The magenta is so pretty with this! I might style it for fall as well with some lace up boots and colorful statement necklace. I know it’s too hot to be even thinking of that

    This dress is out-of-this-world ! I like the way you styled it, especially the double belt. How/where would I wear it ? Hmmm… for once, I could easily be wearing it tonight to a post-vacation-girls-get-together at a Ladies Night in a posh hotel restaurant/bar. With sparkly earrings and belt and very high-heeled strappy sandals. Or for brunch, without a belt, with sneakers and a satchel. But to a posh place too. There is just no way you can wear this dress somewhere less than 5 stars, it’s too over-the-top for a normal place. I love it !

      Thanks, Julia! I agree, this dress is such a statement maker that you need a “5 star” place for it.
