I got several comments about the dress I wore to Trevor's Graduation this Friday. Unfortunately I didn't get a great shot in it, but thought I would share the details anyway.

This dress has actually been sitting in my closet for over two years. I had bought it specifically for an event, but didn't realize that I had put on quite a bit of weight when I ordered it. When it arrived and I tried it on, and it didn't fit. I couldn't even zip it up all the way! I had never experienced something like that, so I was very disheartened. But I loved the dress and knew I would be able to wear it someday again. I am so thrilled to say that since then I have gotten my life back on track in regards to my health, and this little number slipped right on!

I know that this wasn't MY graduation, but anyone who has gone through Law School married, or even dating for that matter, knows what I mean when I say we deserve some kind of certification after that! HA! For Trevor's graduation I wanted to wear something classic and simple. While going through my closet I saw this dress again, and I knew it was meant to be. I hadn't worn it since I got it. I love the black and white color blocking, which creates a great effect with the body con shape. Whenever I wear all black or white I love to play up the color in my accessories. I love how this bright yellow Kate Spade purse adds a punch of color to the overall look.

The exact dress I have isn't available anymore, but they had SO many similar ones I thought I would put them all together for you to look through! :) Dorothy Perkins is doing 30% OFF right now!

  2. I like the black and white dresses alot. I think the coolest ones are those that use the black and white to create an hourglass shape.
