Print Party

4.11.2012


French Connection dress (similar look here), 
Phillip Adec jacket, 
Vintage white leather tote bag, 
Vintage bracelets, 
Ring from Alter, Brooklyn.

Every Easter, Micol hosts a BBQ Bash at her apartment, complete with delicious food, cocktails aplenty, and an outdoor deck to soak in the sun. This year (the 4th annual such event) was no exception, and I've had my eye out for about a month searching for the perfect floral print dress to wear for it.

While I'm usually a pretty good shopper, prone to buying all sorts of things I didn't even realize I needed, whenever I'm looking for something specific to add to my wardrobe it always seems like I can never find it. I'd visited just about every store you could imagine before I decided to check out the Buffalo Exchange down the street from me, and there was this dress with a sweet price tag of only $20. Sold!

Between hiding eggs for the dirty egg hunt and feasting on Micol's homemade deviled eggs, fresh-baked pies, and leg of lamb, no dress could have served its purpose better.

  8. woah $20? nice! it's aaaalways like that- the second you need something, all the stores decide not to sell it anymore. that's an awesome find though, i like the bold colors and the strong pattern. perfect for an easter bbq :)

  23. Hey Lauren , love the floral print! it's like the go to pattern for fashion bloggers this spring and summer lol. I love how this particular floral dress looks on you , its perfect for a sunny spring/summer day. You wear the multi color floral perfectly
    Also really like how you paired the dress with simple gold accessories , gold can go with anything.

    on a totally different topic I'm actually heading to NYC in the beginning of may!!! do you have any restaurant recommendations?

    cheers
