Laddered

dress: Forever21, necklace: Target, bag: Rebecca Minkoff (on sale), shoes: Cynthia Rowley (similar), tattoo: lulu dk (on sale)

I absolutely love this dress. I wandered into F21 last week not looking for anything in particular, and when I saw this, I couldn't resist. I love the side laddered detail, especially since from the front, the dress looks like a simple shift dress. Business in the front, party on the side? I also love this color - mustard is such an unusual color for clothing but I ended up really loving this one. I wore this ensemble to dinner and out to celebrate one of my best friend's birthdays and paired it with a flash tattoo. I had mentioned to my girlfriend that I wished I had a cuff to go around my upper arm, and she suggested one of my flash tattoos -- a fun addition for a night out with friends.

Don't forget that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends soon! Shop some of  my picks here, including my Rebecca Minkoff crossbody that I now over wear. Hurry! The sale ends August 2nd.

  24. Using a flash tattoo as an arm cuff was brilliant!! Love the way that looks!

    And I am totally a fan of the mustard color on you. I feel like it's hard to wear as a blonde myself but loveeee the way it looks on brunettes.
