I told you earlier in the week about our fun night out at the Belle Isle Garden Party and Michael Symon’s Roast restaurant. I wanted to give you a closer look at my outfit for the evening.
I saw this Saint Laurent dress on MyTheresa at 70% off. It’s ordinarily a dress I would never, ever purchase, but given that steep discount, I fell in love. I showed Mom who wasn’t as smitten, so I tried to let it go, but kept looking at it and looking at it and looking at it.
Finally I took the leap, despite the fact that duties on it would only be refunded via a store credit. I knew I could find something else to buy and I had to have this dress. It was a fashion leap of faith.
When the dress came, I loved it even more than I did online. Other than my blue Jason Wu, it’s my favorite dress. Those two dresses are the only times I removed something from the box and gasped at its beauty.
Luckily the dress fit and I couldn’t be happier it found a home in my closet.
I love mixing gold and silver, so I paired the silver beading on the dress (in the shape of stars, my favorite!) with gold glittered shoes. You should never be afraid to mix gold and silver, like navy and black, they are friends.
Have you ever taken a fashion leap of faith?
