Alice + Olivia Floral Embroidered Flare Dress
Allow me to tell you a little story about this dress… When I saw it online at Shopbop, I immediately clicked at to cart for three reasons. First, I love the bold colors – of course! Secondly, I love flowers – duh. Third, I was drawn to the easy-to-wear flowy shape with the flare sleeves.
But, little did I know, that was only the start of my love obsession with this dress… As it turns out, this dress is even prettier in person! In fact, I’d definitely characterize it as one of those online purchases that exceeded my expectations!
Why, you ask? Well, let me tell you… It’s all in the details! The florals on this dress aren’t printed. They are each beautifully embroidered with reflective centers for each flower, creating a really eye-catching design. Actually, I wore this dress to the Louis Vuitton x UNICEF fundraising event last week, and I received so many compliments!
Plus, I love that this dress works now, will be great for Valentine’s Day, and will then transition into spring.
A side note about Shopbop… In case you don’t already know this, Shopbop is affiliated with Amazon now. What that means is that you can log in to Shopbop via your Amazon log-in. And if you’re an Amazon Prime freak like me, you get the same Amazon Prime benefits on Shopbop as you do on Amazon! That’s right, my friends – free two day shipping. Or, if you are ever in a last minute crunch, you can get next day shipping for just $3.99! I lean on this more than I care to admit. 😉
As a reminder, this is the week we started double posting on weekdays. So, yesterday we shared both a fashion article and a Houston City Guide. Be sure to read more about designer Markus Lupfer and learn about our top three Houston nail salons!
