I've always been a really big fan of wrap dresses. Created by the ever-so-fabulous DVF, this dress is perfect for all women. There is something so flattering about a wrap dress that makes me want to live in them.

What's not so great is the price tag for some of those little numbers. While I own a few, it's not a normal thing I like to buy. Because of that, I'm always looking to save money here and there. 

When I was shopping online, I found this amazing dress and I thought it was worth a shot. Sure, it's a little more than some might spend on a dress but compared to the usually higher prices these dresses run for, it was a steal.

The moment I tried it on I knew it was mine forever. Even Andrew walked in on me wearing it and was like, "woah." He told me it was his favorite thing I own so you know I had to keep it! 

What I love about it is how versatile it will be in my wardrobe. It's a dress perfect and classy for work (to wear with heels or flats) but also great for a night out with my girlfriends. It's just the right amount of sexy and sophisticated. It'll also be a great transition piece because of the sleeves and fabric. 

Fall will welcome it with open arms because of the print and style but summer is still holding on strong because of the fabric. It's very breathable and the stretchy material doesn't wrinkle. Really, it's the perfect dress.

It's also comes in maternity sizes (hellooooooo Dittie) that I thought my sister -- who is reading this right now -- might enjoy!

  4. OMG Krista, these pictures are beautiful! And I agree, I love my DVF dresses, but they aren't something I "shop" for. Love your alternative!

    PS: What camera/lens do you use? (Sorry if this is mentioned somewhere else)
