Sparkly, bejeweled & flouncy, everything I could want in a dress.  Thanks to DressLily for making my dream dress come true! When I was choosing the dress I wanted to review (which was a very difficult task as they have hundreds of adorable pieces), this dress caught my eye because of the subtle glimmer, embellished collar and bell skirt.  I didn't read the dress description closely enough so when I received the piece in the mail I was disappointed there was no lacy long sleeve. Until I remembered I had a black lacy leotard that would do the trick!

This is my new career to cocktails dress because you can jazz it up (like I did here for dinner & drinks with friends) or wear it with a blazer for the daytime.


  1. oh wow Emily
    I am in love with this dress
    I see why you chose this one!!

  2. This dress is so much fun! I love it paired with the lacy sleeves and bow belt. Seriously, it's about as much fun as a dress can have!

  3. I love the shimmer of that dress! It's so enticing!

  7. I could not love this ensemble anymore. You are really tapping into what look awesome on you, Emily. Eclectic and fab. How about a giveaway for your blog? I know that the distance will mean more shipping money for me but I can work it out. let me know. No pressure.

  8. Sirens! I'm on the hunt for a lacy long-sleeve top for this very reason, to jazz up sleeveless dresses and vests without bulk, so I was curious where you found yours! It's a great accessory.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
