A Fancy Dress & A Fancy Dress Giveaway

I played dress up on Sunday to style this fabulous cocktail dress I picked out from Clarisse. I haven’t had an event to wear this little number to, but I’ve been staring at it in my closet for a couple months and figured out how I would style this when I wear it, most likely sometime this winter when I have more formal events to attend, by more, I mean one that I can think of! I like that the straps are removable, which makes it a little more versatile!
If you’re interested in winning a similar version, see the giveaway details at the bottom!
[dress c/o clarisse,  bracelets c/o kristin hassan, heels by kelsi dagger, bag by marc jacobs]
If you dig the Clarisse dress like I do, I have it an extra version in black and in a size 4! Just comment with your email to win! I’m wearing it in a size 4 and I’m 5’4″ and 125 pounds and it fits perfectly, just to give you a better understanding of what the size fits like. Giveaway ends Tuesday, October 4 at 9 p.m. CST.

    I never shop for cocktail dresses until I have an event that I must have one for – then I can never find one that I love in a quick timeframe. Murphy's Law in fashion, I guess…
