Rosy Dream


Hello! I pulled one of my favorite dresses out for a recent photoshoot with Richmond photographer, Rachel Dwyer. I've already worn this floral embroidered little black slip dress several times since receiving it a few weeks ago.  Its classic silhouette, versatile black hue and dreamy rosy detailing have all earned it a special spot in my wardrobe. 

I dressed it up for this look with an eye-catching black beaded jacket. I discovered this vintage beauty of a jacket sometime last fall and immediately fell in love. I think I briefly listed it in RaddayVintage, my Etsy shop at the time, before deciding to hang onto it for myself. It instantly glams up any look. 

I wanted to highlight the pretty pink and green hues in the floral embroidery of the dress so I accessorized with coordinating colors. I played up the green coloring in the embroidery with a green vintage purse (passed down from my grandmother!) and vintage green heels. I slipped on a trendy pair of green shades with the look for several shots as well. I emphasized the rosy pink coloring in the embroidery with a peachy pink pair of cat-eye sunglasses and a Barbie pink shade of lipstick. 

Trendy statement earrings, a couple golden necklaces and several rings perfected the look.
