Crystal Headband: Claire's
Lace Dress: c/o Motel Rocks
Wedges: Colin Stuart
I was very excited to style this dress when it came in the mail from Motel Rocks! It really gives off the figure-skater or ice princess vibe :) I styled it with this crystal headband because it looked like an ice crystal crown to me. For the shoes, I kept it simple and neutral with the wedges.
The lace work on this dress is very well done. It's not scratchy like other lace garments can be, instead it has a softer, fluffier texture. The sleeves are stretchy too so they will fit both thinner and more muscular arms. The back has a lovely circular dip as well. This is a dress that is warm, but not too warm. So if you throw on a thick cardigan over it in the morning you won't be freezing, but if it suddenly becomes hot in the afternoon, you won't be sweating either. If you need to find a bodycon dress, definitely look at Motel Rocks! They are quite well balanced in the stock they carry. There's always a broad selection of colors and prints, and they are pretty well known for the amazing detail work they have in the backs of their dresses :)
Aside from being really pressed for time with early finals and AP exams, I can't wait to see The Avengers at midnight this Thursday! Even though I have a lot to do, I think it's still important to set aside time to do things you enjoy so you don't go crazy later on. Anyways, I also happened to receive this really beautiful red dress from Akira and I found a way to incorporate my Iron Man obsessions into the styling; so I'll be wearing that on Thursday to school to celebrate the long-awaited release of The Avengers! ;) I can't wait!
