Dress Week 3: Cutouts and Polka Dots

This dress had me at hello.

Dress:  eShakti (Available here)
Shoes:  Target (Available here)

Sometimes clothes just speak to me, and in this case, the dress was yelling, “PICK ME! PICK ME!”  Okay, clothes talk to me a lot – it’s a problem.  LOL

I love the cutout detail of this – it shows just enough midriff without making it the central focus.  It also gives the dress a modernity that blend really well with the 1950s shape and cut of the dress.

Necklace:  Torrid
Bracelets:  The Limited

The shape of this dress flatters curves.  The sweetheart neckline adds a bit of sex appeal which is perfectly balanced by the knee-length hem.

Rather than play up the inherent sweetness of this dress, I decided to give it a little bit of a more womanly feel while adding just the slightest touch of edge that I love.  The chain-link necklace mixed with the lace clutch is for me the perfect mix – all lady, but with a bit of attitude!  ;-D

Clutch:  Jason Wu for Target (Available on ebay here and here)

How would you style this dress?
