Happy Friday! For many of you your workweek is ending and you’re looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I however, have a huge work event this weekend that I’m so excited for, but know I’ll be absolutely exhausted by the time the weekend has come to an end.
Anyway, let’s talk about fashion! I purchased this Betsey Johnson dress about two years ago, after wearing it in a fashion show. At the time, it was around $200 full—price, which was way out of my budget. I waited until it was more than 50% off before purchasing. I’m so glad I did. I’ve probably worn this dress 20-25 times. I love it.
At that time bell sleeves were a risky, yet confident-in-your-style kind of decision to make. I enjoy taking risks with my style, in hopes of showing other women pieces they can add to their wardrobe. Now bell-sleeves are all the rage! This Spring and Summer was huge for the style. Every fashion blogger was wearing them and they were in every store I walked into. Isn’t it funny how trends from the 60’s and 70’s are such a hit this year? Although my dress is no longer available, I have linked the cream version here and I’ve added similar styles below.

Summer Kimono Wrap Style Floral Dress
Happy Memorial Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend. I’m writing this while packing for a quick getaway to the family lake house. I picked this wrap kimono dress up from Dolce Vita a few weeks ago. The beautiful colors in this wrap dress are PERFECT for summer. This dress would be a hit for weekends at the beach or lake, a summer BBQ, or a brunch date! I’ve never worn a kimono dress before but love the way it fits. It’s ties around at the waist and effortlessly flows throughout the shoulders and arms as well from the waist down. For the Tulsa area ladies, you can pick this dress at Dolce Vita (just reordered!) and for the not-so-close girls, I’ve found some beautiful similar pieces here, here, and here that would be gorgeous choices! If you’re looking for shorter wrap kimono dress options, try this or this!

My Spring-Style Floral Skater Dress
I never wait this late to write a post! It’s 10pm on a Sunday night and I just got home from Hop Jam, where we got to see some friends play, along with the folk/hippie band, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero’s (so fun). My feet are swollen and I’m covered in a layer of sweat, SO gross! This weekend was full of festival fun.
I’ve been waiting a few weeks to share THIS DRESS (similar here) from our local Dolce Vita with you guys! Ahh, another one of those pieces I fell in love with so so quickly once stumbling upon! This floral print skater dress makes any body type look great; it hugs and flows in all the right places. This was my first skater-style dress purchase and I have to say I’m hooked. The closeness of the waist and the flowing bottom (my favorite) make me feel all the more girly, while the back makes the dress so unique for skater-style dresses. If you’re in the Tulsa area, stop by Dolce Vita and give this beauty a try-on! I’ve linked a couple very similar ones I love here and here.
See you next week loves!
