Preaching to the Choir

Dress: Kieu's, $15 // Bracelet: Forever 21, $9 // Earrings: Creation Station (local shop), $5 // Shoes: RJ Girl via Piperlime, $55

This dress called to me for a number of reasons: the scalloped edges, the big bow, the bright white color, the price tag. Staring in the mirror this morning, however, I couldn't help but think I looked like I belonged in a church choir. I edged up its angelic nature with tough accessories: glam metallic earrings, a big stud bracelet and my trusty strappy wedges.

The bruise on your knee is my favorite part, sweet and tough at the same time.
Pretty lip tint.

I think it's gorgeous! I love the scalloped edges as well. I just purchased a skirt from Urban Outfitters with a scalloped hem, and I'm in love with it!

Beautiful! The dress itself is amazing and the styling was wonderful. I think the hair keeps it from looking too sweet as well, very nice!

adorable dress on you. Plus, I'm sure you get this all the time, I'm so jealous of your haircut. i could never pull it off, but I've always wanted a pixie cute.
