Versailles Lace: Dress Review

    I love Anthropologie's lace dresses.  So far they've never let me down and this dress is no exception.  I found this at a discounted price, though it was still more than I normally spend, I couldn't resist.  I really do recommend that if you're going to splurge, it should be on something that gives you an instant "Wow!  I'm in Love!" sort of feeling.  I'll wait for the sales if it's anything less than that.   
        At the time of this post, this dress is still in stock online in petite sizes.  Check your local shop for availability.  It is still at full price though, so decide for yourself if you'd rather chance waiting for the sale.  The fit is wonderful.  The bodice has two layers--the top layer of beige and white lace and the under layer of light weight fuchsia fabric.  
        The skirt has an additional two layers to give it some flounce, but that also makes it a little too heavy to be a summer dress in my opinion.  It is a tad longer than I normally wear, and thought this might make it a little frumpy.  I prefer dresses to stay at knee level or slightly above, but I actually like that  little extra length in this dress.  
        It gives it enough of a boho feel to make it perfect for pairing with flats and a chunky cardi or heels and a blazer or slim cardi to dress it up.  I do feel like it needs a belt and since the pattern is so bold, I chose a wide belt in a neutral color to define the waist line without making it look too busy.
     Overall, I highly recommend this dress.  It's very striking and unique and I think it has lots of possibilities for ways to wear it.  For this post, I'll show you the progression of starting with the basic dress and then adding things to create a complete look.
