I love a simple, classic dress. I used to work at The Limited, so I started quite a collection of great dresses. The perfect dress has a classic shape, but current details. It can be worn to work, church, or am event depending on how you accessorize it. You can easily go from day to night in a perfect dress. A perfect dress has small details like pleating, or ties to create a faux wrap effect, and a fantastic fit.
I love this dress for those very reasons. It's just as picnic as it is fancy tea party. Just change out the accessories! I chose these fun color blocked heels (which to be honest, are almost too tall even for ME). I want a colorful, chunky necklace to dress it up a bit, and I reached for my favorite JewelMint bracelet right now (seriously, I'm obsessed). I didn't even really know how hot chambray would be when I got this like two years ago, but it just proves my point - a classic dress will last for seasons.
