Happy Thursday, everyone! Most of you know that I love almost all clothing. I believe in trying out new trends and styles because you never know when something is going to look better on than you think. But, when my friend Jennifer reached out to me about doing a post about something that we would never wear, I realized that there were a few things that I still refused to try.
So, today, Jennifer, Cindy, and I are all styling a one-shoulder look. This look is something that I’ve not styled before, even though I love off the shoulder and cold-shoulder tops. One-shoulder tops have always reminded me of watching Tarzan swing through the trees, and I just couldn’t shake that image. ????
HOWEVER, the other day, I was looking at the Lilly Pulitzer website, and this gorgeous dress caught my eye. When I got the message from Jennifer, I immediately thought of this dress and knew that it would be perfect. I put it on to take photos, and then I finally got up my courage to go and ask my hubby for his feedback. He said that he thought it looked great and that he loved it. I told him that I never wore one-shoulder tops, and he said to me that I should start. WHAT?!?
This dress looked so pretty and elegant that I decided to give it the works with my jewelry. I took advantage of the Lilly sale the other day and bought some jewelry. This Kismet Pearl stretch bracelet was one of the items that I purchased, but since it was on sale, it has sold out. I did find ONE on eBay, and I’ll link it here, but you know that it won’t last long. Lol! At least the rest of my jewelry is available. The Hilty gold hoop earrings have the cutest pearl dangles, and I love the way that they sway when you walk. They are quite the statement piece but are lightweight to wear.
The long necklace is the Beckett statement link necklace and the Beckett link bracelet put together. Instead of wearing them separately, I decided to combine them for a longer length necklace. This set was something else that I resisted ordering because I thought that it would be too big and look like a Mr. T chainset. But, I LOVE it, and I wear it all of the time now. And, the last piece of jewelry that I have on is the Fallyn link cuff bracelet. I’ve had this bracelet for a while, and I love it.
I admit that a back view is not a look that I love showing. Lol! It is a view that I don’t see often, so I didn’t think that you would need to see it either. Lol! For sizing references, I am 5’6″ tall, and I usually weigh anywhere between 155 and 160. I typically wear a size 12 in a dress, so I ordered the large, and it fits me perfectly.
Because I know that a lot of you will want to know about a strapless bra, I’ll let you in on a secret. I don’t have one on! ???? This dress comes with padding in that area, so for me, I didn’t need to add anything additional. Most of the time, I usually wear Hollywood Fashion secrets silicone coverups, and they work great for me. However, a regular strapless bra should work with this dress.
Okay, I made you wait long enough for details on the dress. It is the Mooney One-Shoulder maxi dress, and it is perfect for the summer. No one does summer prints quite like Lilly, and you can’t go wrong with their clothing. The dress has a ruched waistband, and it ends with a tiered ruffle at the midi-length hem. I was afraid of the waistband, but the dress flares out some to help create a thinner looking waist. The dress is a lightweight rayon spandex jersey fabric, and it is machine washable in cold water on delicate. It is truly gorgeous in person.
Instead of having images of Tarzan in my head, I am now going to think of a Grecian Goddess. That is MUCH better!!! Be sure to check out Cindy and Jennifer’s looks to see what they are wearing. And, for those who are visiting from their blogs, I want to extend a warm welcome to you!
