Sooo Forever 21 has recently taken their amazing array of awesome and affordable pieces and looked to designers like Philip Lim, the legendary Chanel, and my personal fave, Betsey Johnson for inspiration! Among many fun and fab Betsey reminiscent pieces- this bright, bold, rose pattern on a rich palette of black, touched my soul in a way the other pieces just couldn't compete with. I loved the way the big, bold flowers (that reminded of Beauty of the Beast) added such a pretty, doll like feel; and of course I was obsessed with the sewn in tulle detail!
This summer I found myself consistently drawn to this dress, despite the occasion. From low key lunch dates to decadent dinners, this gem of a garment took me from day to night with ease. It seemed to channel within me, an equal contrast of femininity and power. For dinner I decided to playfully pair it with my black, over sized Hello Kitty bow, which totally amped the whole Betsey Johnson vibe!
