Confectioner's Dream Dress

I was in a pinch for a dress for family photos and so I decided to spring for this one.  It is lovely, and if you love ironing this is definitely the dress for you.  After 20 mins I got most of the wrinkles out, but once it was smoothly pressed, I noticed that the fabric was full of pulls.  I have to have this dress for family photos, so I can't send it back.  My "Plan A" dress was too big; this one was "Plan B" and I am totally out of time for a "Plan C."  So, this is a cute little number, but maybe not worth the $90 price tag.  If it I had it to do over, I'd hold off on purchasing until it goes on sale.

I only had two styles in mind for this dress, I may post more later as ideas come to me.  For the first, I ditched the lace belt, though it is cute and fits well, for a yellow gross grain ribbon.  Then added my go-with-just-about-anything Charlotte Russe peep toe pumps.  This style is by far my favorite.  I love the little extra pop that the yellow adds.

For the next outfit, I brought back the belt, traded out the peep toes for brown heels and an ivory crop cardi.  I feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland in this combo, but that won't stop me from wearing it.
