You know when you're on a mission to find something, and it seems like no stores want to sell it to you? I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and really wanted a cute printed dress with sleeves. I went to like five stores and found absolutely zero dresses that were even close to fitting the bill. I was trying to avoid the mall, but eventually gave in because I knew Forever 21 would have exactly what I was looking for. I should have just started there. *Sigh*

Anyway, this dress is the result! It's like nothing I've ever owned, but is exactly what I envisioned. I love the color, and I like that the way the print complements the shape of the dress, specifically the neckline and sleeves. Oh, and it ended up being half-off because of the upcoming Black Friday, so that didn't hurt either!

I didn't wear the vest to the wedding (and I did wear tights), but I thought a little fur would be a cute look for the dress' next outing. It's got that '60s vibe to it that you know I'm all about. 

Do you have any weddings on your calendar this season? What are you planning to wear?


  1. I just ordered a super similar print dress from forever 21 yesterday! Def gonna copy you and wear it with my fur vest. I love how you casualfied it with the booties. I'd love to see how you wore it to the wedding! I'm going to a wedding on January 3rd... I will be wearing a gorgeous teal (bridesmaid!) dress. :D

  2. This dress is lovely and looks great on you!! Love that vest!

  3. I'm actually going to my cousin's wedding in Austin and I'm super excited! It's early next month. Are there any places you would recommend? :)

  4. so cute! I love the vest paired with it. I had a similar experience shopping for a Christmas party dress- went to 9 stores and where did I end up last + found a dress..darn you Forever 21!

    xo, Maddy

  5. This dress looks vintage! Good find!!

    My wedding count for next year is up to about 6. Very excited-- I'll finally be wearing some bridesmaid's dresses too!
